“Thanks To Global Warming”

Five years ago, USA Today and the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colorado said that Arctic sea ice was at a record winter low and temperatures in the Arctic were 15F (9C) above normal. And they announced that it was due to global warming.

Five years later, Arctic sea ice is normal, and Antarctic sea ice is near a record high for the date.

One hundred years ago, Arctic ocean temperatures were 23 degrees above normal, and the ocean around Svalbard never froze over.

There is currently lots of ice around Svalbard.

And 6,000 years ago, the Arctic might have been ice-free.

The lack of knowledge about history by journalists and climate academics is not surprising to me, because I spend a lot time studying journalists and climate academics. They parrot the same nonsense over and over again.

    It snowed in Tucson today. Nothing says global warming like snow covered cactus.

    Tony,
    In looking at the Arctic extent graph, it looks as if the extent has been at the bottom of the 2 x Standard Deviation (2SD) and therefore well below average extent. Not really normal. An average year should be somewhere in the middle of the gray area, according to my understanding. 2021 continues to be at the base of the gray (2SD) area. However, there’s still ice at the Nth pole, contrary to alarmists predictions

    “Climate Change” is not about science, but about bludgeoning the public into submission. If you scare them enough they will shackle and muzzle themselves willingly. Scare them more and they will hand you their house and car, even their children, if it will buy them forgiveness in your eyes. But, an advocate is never satisfied.

      as they both said- when the Experts say its not about the money “IT is all about the $$$$$”

    Hi Tony:

    First of all on the sea ice extent, the change along the east coast of Newfoundland and in the Gulf of St Lawrence on Canada’s east coast is noteworthy. The Gulf is where the somewhat infamous seal hunt has taken place every March as sealers hop from their boats onto ice floes and take the seals in the well publicized, rather primitive fashion.
    I noticed previous year, 2019, it was much closer to the designated 40 year median, at least in the Gulf of St Lawrence and along “Iceberg Alley” off the east coat of NL.
    Wonder what causes the difference year over year? Gulf Stream? Curious.

    Minimums (late September) seem to be the most dramatically different for overall sea ice extent.
    A question is, what would a multi-variate analysis tell us as to the cause of what appears to be a trend of declining minimum sea ice extents?

    I have another comment and a question.
    First I salute your excellent work. So good and educational!
    Question I have is, why do you apparently act as a lone wolf?
    There are many others out there who are true skeptics and trying to show this side of the argument. A few as I am sure you know are:
    William Happer
    Willie Soon
    Richard Lindzen
    many, many, many more….
    And there is a site called Climate Discussion Nexus run by John Robson.
    But it seems each of you works in relative isolation – at least that’s the way it appears!
    What would happen if you each posted links to the others’ sites and /or cited each others’ work?
    We all know the climate alarmists control the narrative.
    They are well funded and organized!
    Enlighten me – why don’t you start teaming up with each other? At least with mention of others on your sites?
