So far this year, average nighttime temperatures in the US have been close to a record low, and the number of cold nights has been close to a record high.
Global temperatures are very close to the 1979-2000 mean.
Arctic sea ice is melting very slowly, and extent is just below the 1981-2010 median.
No kidding. We had frost again yesterday morning. I actually got cold at soccer practice with a jacket on.
This data looks like the last 6 years on average is well below the 81-2010 range. So it looks like on average the ice coverage is receding. It doesn’t look catastrophic, but it looks like it is there. Now 6 years is a blink of an eye in geologic terms. Do you believe it’ll reverse back to the 81-2010 average? Thanks for all the data you supply
Yes it will. Sea ice is 90% in the water, so it is controlled by sea surface temp, the AMO and PDO. AMO is starting it’s decline for the next 30 years, so Arctic sea ice will increase again.
The DMI always has a sudden drop in ice extent when the curve starts approaching to 1981 to 2010 average. Amazing how the areal extent can drop 100,000 square miles overnight when it gets to the norm.
Same here in southern interior of BC Canada. Colder temps during the night especially. You can check temps at website listed below.
I think I know where this is going. The dumb schmucks are going to se an amazing wake up call. Sadly entries into ice ages are quite fast ..in geological time ! I wont live to see it , but by golly , I can image !
They can blame Musk for cutting CO2 emissions too quickly.
That 1918 start date for the median extent is yet another example of cherry-picking by the global warming activists.
Have you – or can you – recreate the above graph to show the 1972-20xx mean?
The Arctic Sea Ice Extent graph from the 1990 IPCC report clearly shows data from BEFORE the very high extent year of 1979. It would be useful to have that median displayed for contrast.
How does this correlate with the N. Atlantic decadal oscillation? Do you have a similar graph for the ice in Antarctica? Supposedly there are many volcanoes below the ice in W. Antarctica, explaining why the ice is melting in that area.
It’s 2022. Shouldn’t Miami be underwater by now? How is it possible to live in Phoenix, Arizona? Actually it’s quite nice here today despite all the MannMade CO2.
Where I live in Australia, this year has seen too many days when solar panels operated far below capacity. As someone who relies on solar-PV to un-tie me from the grid, I am sad to see the need to import grid-power to charge batteries. It may be an active sun at the moment, but there is too much cloud.
While completely off subject, I have to share this little gem of, climate change disaster predicting.
The feature of all predictions is how far in the future they are. These have gone from ten or twelve years to thirty, forty, or fifty years.
An article on Australia’s ABC News web site, (29 April 2022) quotes from a paper published in, “Science”, by co authors, Justin Penn and Curtis Duetsch.
Ecophysiological modelling predicts, mass marine life extinction by the year, 2300, if global warming continues. Over two and a half centuries into the future!
I’m certainly not hanging around for that one!

That explains why all LIVs (who watch and follow)mainstream media believe in global warming.
What about antarctic vs prior years?
