Fifty years ago National Geographic published this map of Arctic sea ice.

This is the current map from DMI.

There is more ice in the Beaufort and Chukchi Seas now and less in the East Siberian Sea

The 1985 DOE report showed that ice extent in 1971 was about 10% higher than 1960.

In 1958 the New York Times reported rapidly melting ice and predicted an ice-free Arctic in a generation. They said the ice was two meters thick.

    Been working north and south of the Brooks Range this summer, and the old timers do tell of 30 and 30+ year cycles, this year being a chiller. We have snow right now and the caribou and birds are hauling ass early.
    The horseshoe from the southern Brooks to the north side of the Alaska Range has never undergone glaciation over the past 4 cycles. As we know the ocesn-air circulation patterns dictate what happens on land, and this new cycle is not new, but does tend toward the end of this interglacial period.
    The asswipe extraordinaire ‘s are talking the same shit, that they’ve been spewing for 60,000 years, and eventually we tell them to STFU!

    I say with all the ice “disappearing” , we should move most of the Gummint Agencies to the North Slope of Brooks Range.
    The cooler Summers will quell the hot air spewing out of DC.
    Maybe the trillions of skeeters will give some of the scumballs Malaria.
    Then we’d see a push on hydroxychloroquine.
