20% Increase In Arctic Sea Ice Volume

Arctic sea ice volume is up 20% from last year and is just below the 2004-2013 average.

Antarctic sea ice extent is close to a record high.

NOAA says earth just experienced the hottest month ever. But the ice forgot to melt.

    If you go to the NSIDC.org site, subpage https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/ and scroll down to Figure 5, you will see a depiction of predicted sea ice extent through the end of September using past years’ melt rates. Note the dotted teal line showing extrapolation from the Aug. 1 date; this corresponds to the 2006 melt rate and is, presumably, the “least melting” on record over this time period. Now, look at today’s sea ice extent. You’ll note that over the month of August the 2021 melt has been the SLOWEST on record, less than even the 2006 rate. I am looking forward to the write-up on this page in the coming days to discuss this apparent aberration. Dollars to donuts, I bet they reference “total ice mass” or “sea ice thickness” as a means of explaining away this trend compared to historical measurements.

    Who knows if this will continue, but it is very peculiar that sea ice extent in the Arctic is well above any recent years, and nearly an all-time high in the Antarctic, yet as you point out, we’re supposed to be setting records for heat in practically every month of the year.

  2. Greta Thunberg Swedish activist says:

    My name is Greta Thunberg, yes you are right, i am THE Greta Thunberg. You are all evil haters and we will all die because you took the wrong path. We the young people will NEVER forgive you. I was born at 375 ppm. We will die because of the climate change. Tony is a denier. He is the devil.

      Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa oh STOP It i lost my coffee- HAAAAAAAAA

      say Greta how much is Ikea paying you for commercials

      Poor poor Greta.
      None of my grandpas reached 60 years,
      my mother lost her mother at the age of five and my sister few weaks after birth and i almost got killed by the flu as a baby.
      And my grandpa lost everything twice thx to communism.
      (this combined with a faith that dumbs people down is a leathal combination)
      Of course this is nothing compared to the suffering of a little spoiled,skillfree girl who is sailing in millionaires Yachts and who lives in the big house of
      an equally useless mother and her simp dad.

      Jerry Lee Lewis is the devil and not Tony,
      but i’m pretty sure this pseudogreta knows this :)

      Seriously, Greta Thunberg? This has to be a joke. Why would that useful idiot even be looking at this site? But if that post really was by G.T., I say, young lady grow up and start doing your own research and don’t depend on the crap that others have been feeding you.

    • Vegieman says:

      Indeed we are evil haters, that is, haters of evil, haters of lies, and to express it in the positive, lovers of truth. The devil hates truth and is the father of lies. You are on the side of lies and deception. Take a deeper look here and maybe you’ll get some revelation of how your worldview is destroying you and your fellow slaves of deception.

    • You forgot to say.. says:

      How dare you?

    • Sick and Tired says:

      Well, IF you are the real Greta Thunberg then I have this to say to you: Sod Off you little twerp! You have barely started life and you are not a scientist, let alone properly educated. You are a puppet being manipulated and used by your parents and several other males (predators) for a political agenda that has no basis in real science. Be a good girl now and leave your parents and go back to school and learn something about the real Earth. While you’re at it, learn about the difference between real ecological issues versus the hacked up story of global warming (NOT)! Sheesh, you annoying creature!

      “Psychological projection is a defense mechanism in which the ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities …by denying their existence in themselves and attributing them to others.[1] A bully may project their own feelings of vulnerability onto the target, or a person who is confused may project feelings of confusion and inadequacy onto other people. ”

      The truly evil are those pushing catastrophic climate change porn (looking at you little missy), which kills millions of innocents annually…

      “These were the bad projects. As you might see the bottom of the list was climate change. This offends a lot of people, and that’s probably one of the things where people will say I shouldn’t come back, either. And I’d like to talk about that, because that’s really curious. Why is it it came up? And I’ll actually also try to get back to this because it’s probably one of the things that we’ll disagree with on the list that you wrote down.

      The reason why they came up with saying that Kyoto — or doing something more than Kyoto — is a bad deal is simply because it’s very inefficient. It’s not saying that global warming is not happening. It’s not saying that it’s not a big problem. But it’s saying that what we can do about it is very little, at a very high cost. What they basically show us, the average of all macroeconomic models, is that Kyoto, if everyone agreed, would cost about 150 billion dollars a year. That’s a substantial amount of money. That’s two to three times the global development aid that we give the Third World every year. Yet it would do very little good. All models show it will postpone warming for about six years in 2100. So the guy in Bangladesh who gets a flood in 2100 can wait until 2106. Which is a little good, but not very much good. So the idea here really is to say, well, we’ve spent a lot of money doing a little good.

      And just to give you a sense of reference, the U.N. actually estimate that for half that amount, for about 75 billion dollars a year, we could solve all major basic problems in the world. We could give clean drinking water, sanitation, basic healthcare and education to every single human being on the planet. So we have to ask ourselves, do we want to spend twice the amount on doing very little good? Or half the amount on doing an amazing amount of good? And that is really why it becomes a bad project. It’s not to say that if we had all the money in the world, we wouldn’t want to do it. But it’s to say, when we don’t, it’s just simply not our first priority.”

    Nuclear power, airturbines, photovoltaic, natural gas VS fuels, lignits.
    This is the truth. The global Fairy Tale without a good ending…….. just to threat us… And as Donald Trump says: Fake news! No climate change caused by human activities. If you study the planet’s earth climate history you will find all the answers, all the truth …..

    Kære Greta, as Swedisj you may know the danish ” Mars- man”, astrophycisist Jens Martin Knudsen at the university of Copenhagen. He once said at one of our lectures on Newtonian physics: “The experiment shall be the judge about scientific truth”. For up to date scientific evidence on climate research please read Roy W. Spencer: ‘The great global warming blunder – how Mother Nature fooled the world’s top scientists’. You will only need a minimum of math and science to grasp the essence of his findings, based on satellite monitoring of the Earths radiative energy balance and the resulting temperature variation. First you could go through the video from 2013 (a Senate Hearing about global warming):
    It will give you a lot of geophysical and climatological understanding from a man with 50 years experience.

    Ha det så bra och lycka till!
