“extraordinary global heating in the Arctic”

The Guardian says the Arctic is warming seven times faster than the rest of the planet.

“New data has revealed extraordinary rates of global heating in the Arctic, up to seven times faster than the global average.”

The North Pole may be having the coldest spring/summer on record, with temperatures persistently below the 1958-2002 average.

Temperatures at the center of the Greenland Ice Sheet have barely gotten above -18C (0F) this summer.


Greenland’s surface has gained more ice than the 1921-2010 average for the fourth year of the last six.

In Some Places Seals Are Finding Waters Too Hot, Says Report.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 2.—The Arc‘tie ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarce and in some places the seals are finding the waters too hot, according to a report to the commerce department today from Consul Iffi, at Bergen Norway. .

Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers, he declared, all point to a radical change in climatic conditions and hitherto unheard of temperatures in the Artic zone, exploration expeditions reporting that scarcely any ice has been met with as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes: .

The rise of 22 deg. in the average temperature of Spitsbergen has not occurred at the expense of the Australian climate,  according to Sir Douglas Mawson

the ice at the poles is certainly decreasing,’ said Sir Douglas cheerfully”

“LONDON, Feb. 18. 1925 —The latest investigations confirm the theory that the arctic climate has changed considerably in recent years. The temperature of the Gulf Stream, which in. 1925, was higher than fn the previous year, shows: an average increase of from four to five degrees centigrade since 1900 when it was first measured by the explorer Nansen.

Scientists have confirmed the fact that the Arctic regions around Spitzbergen are warming up at the rate of approximately one degree every two years.

Since 1910. when observations first started in those regions, the cumulative rise of winter temperature has amounted to nearly 16 degrees”

“If the Antarctic ice regions and the major Greenland icecap should re-duce at the rate of the present melting, he said, the oceanic surfaces would rise to catastrophic proportions. People living in the lowlands along the shores would be inundated. Temperatures in the Arctic had increased 10deg Fahrenheit since 1900, an “enormous” rise from the scientific standpoint.”

“Since 1910, for instance, the mean winter temperature in Spitzbergen is up 14 degrees F. “If this goes on,” Mr. Murphy points out, “the Arctic Ocean will be open the year round” before the close of the twentieth century.”

    It has been a persistent pattern for the last several years that Arctic temps have been warmer than the mean during the winter months but colder than the mean during the summer months.

    That is due to water vapor primarily.

    The liars are having a real problem with that fact because even when temps are a bit higher during the winter they are still very cold and well below freezing and so the ice is still there.

      At the time around the northern hemisphere summer solstice the
      amount of solar energy received at the North Pole is 30% higher during the summer solstice than the amount of solar energy received at the Equator.
      Thinking that the northern hemisphere is tilted toward the sun at midsummer so energy per area for area it’s feasible that the 30% figure could be correct.
      A NASA satellite called CERES reckons that is what is happening.

    Dial up the stupidity! Only recently we were told that this part of the planet was warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet that was warming twice as fast as anywhere else. Now we have one part warming seven times as fast as the rest of the planet that is warming twice as fast as anywhere else.

  3. I suppose the Arctic, at seven times, is heating up more rapidly than everywhere else which is apparently heating up at twice the rate of every other place. How dense do you have to be to still believe this rubbish?

    If you are prowling around The New Scientist in the range of about 1966 – 1972 in an Ariadne’s Column of that era there was an item on the prospects for a computer based religion.

    Things I remember are

    – That it would demand mores diagonally opposed to most people’s current practices

    – There would be lots of fire and brimstone

    – There would be financial bonuses issued on the then UK Premium Bond principle

    And the wonder was how many disciples might be collected even though the equipment was provided by XX Computer Co and the software written by Joe Blow

    Which now sound like all too many things modern

    I no longer have the reference

    AHA! – I see from your post that they are on line – I will look.

    If you like socialist science fiction the gaurniad is the place to go to ! Always beating the drum for the unblemished socialist revolution for decades…… i think the only reason it is still in circulation is that it is propped up by wealthy backers…i am not sure who they could be. If it’s from them you can disregard it all sensation and junk as usual.
