“precipitous declines in sea ice”

Less than two weeks ago, Time Magazine reported “precipitous declines in sea ice.”

“The Arctic is nearing that tipping point. Nearly five months after Antarctica’s high temperature record, the Siberian city of Verkhoyansk reached a searing historical high of 38°C (100.4°F) on June 20, 2020, heralding a summer of extreme heat and wildfires in a region better known for ice storms. Overall, 2020 marked the hottest year on record for both poles, and both the Arctic and the Antarctic saw precipitous declines in sea ice. “

Arctic sea ice extent is right at the the 1981-2010 median, and higher than 1989, 1995, 1997, 2002. 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, 2011, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021. Melt so far during May has been the second slowest on record.

    “Better known” doing a lot of work there.

    “We estimate that the average area burned annually in Russian boreal forests is around 7.3 million ha [18 million acres] – U.S. Forest Service

    Just because Time doesn’t know about it doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist. The world is as it is, now how Time perceives it.

    I wonder when they change the graph again, and adjust the median higher, thus ice is lower….

    I note that the graph shows min, Q1, median, Q3 and max. I wonder why global air temperatures are not done the same way.

    Wait, «both ends»? Was he/she/it with Prof. Chris Turney and his tourists?

    So,it’s now the poles who regulate our climate and not co2(or the oceans)
    and our Aryan Baker has visited the poles by bike and solar power is my guess
    and all of a sudden,just like everyone else,she became climate polar expert.
    And how did she realise in which trouble we are in?
    With no clue,no experience,no reference point and no proof.
    And how does she know that those “untold consequences” are negative?

  6. I note that it is only in the peripheral sciences that Thom’s catastrophe theory is still used, having been abandoned by the real sciences years ago. Anybody who talks about ‘tipping points’ is talking BS.

    Time Magazine has had precipitous declines in the ability to tell the truth, about anything. With writers like Aryn Baker publishing that kind of fiction as if truth, TM is nothing but a propaganda megaphone for The Cabal. That rag has no integrity whatsoever. IMHO

    This clown visited both poles in one year with lockdowns and vax mandates? She/it is just another climate tourist…. these women need to be given something tangible to worry about like children, washing and pets, simple things to save with their useless feminist vaginas. Bachelor of Arts in anthropology and literature… sounds like a nice easy BS degree….

      -7°F is not HOT.
      And there are places right NOW where the ‘feel like’ temp is ….-130°f!!!
      Ventusky.com is a great site to learn about temps etc. of Planet earth.
      When the ‘AGW Faithful’ realize that we are now in the Eddy Minimum (who named it Eddy?) and that they will suddenly realize 1 they want hotter temps and 2 Who will they than ‘destroy’ for lying to them?
