The Washington Post says Arctic sea ice has seen irreversible thinning over the past fifteen years.
Arctic ice has seen an ‘irreversible’ thinning since 2007, study says – The Washington Post
Fifteen years ago the ice at the North Pole was about 1.5 meters thick, prompting academics to warn about an imminent ice-free Arctic. Al Gore predicted this at the Nobel Prize ceremony in 2007.

“there will be no sea ice left in the summer in the Arctic Ocean somewhere between 2010 and 2015. “And it’s probably going to happen even faster than that,” said Fortier, who leads an international team of researchers in the Arctic”

Arctic Sea Ice Gone in Summer Within Five Years?

Gore: Polar ice cap may disappear by summer 2014
There is more sea ice now than when Al Gore made that forecast.
Now the ice at the North Pole is two meters thick, the same as it was in 1958.
“Although the idea that a solid ice sheet covers the central Arctic has lingered stubbornly in the popular fancy, the northern cap of ice worn by our planet is actually a thin crust— on the whole, only about seven feet thick”

Dimocrats have no imagination and no new ideas so they just keep repeating the same old Chicken Little stories of horror and confusion believing that none of their minions will remember a thing they said yesterday anyway.
They keep repeating the Big Lie for a reason, and it’s not because they have no imagination. It is much larger than U.S. Democrats.
Human induced climate change/catastrophe is the constant. But they do have new ideas – the constant changing of the language (political correctness), the various virus scares of the last few decades (Fluvid was just the one they orchestrated best that got traction and the gender dysphoria scam are two recent ones). You don’t think they have imaginations? You just wait. There will be more.
Funny – Tucker Carlson just released a Video about climate change.
(including neil ‘dumbest smart person on earth’ degrasse tysons “sea levels will reach the ellbow of the statue of liberty” – haven’t seen that one before)
It’s worth watching.
that was pretty funny
Al Gore of all his prediction has been 100% WRONG on everyone
WHY Arctic sea ice??? SIMPLE IT melts every year as their is no land mass under it – the dont CRY for Greenland or Antarctic
Well we are definitely on the low side of the 2004-13 mean, whatever that artificial mean means.
“The frightening models we didn’t even dare to talk about before are now proving to be true,” Fortier told CanWest News Service, referring to computer models that take into account the thinning of the sea ice and the warming from the albedo effect – the Earth is absorbing more energy as the sea ice melts.”
Frightening? Climate scientists are easily skeert. Seriously, “frightening models?”
It’s kind of like Chicken Little. Anything different has to be catastrophic. But we know all of these things have been seen before, and yet life abounds. What makes you think that what you have seen in the last ten years, twenty years, hundred years, thousand years is “normal” for 5 billion years of Earth existence?
Thin ice, thick ice, no ice have all happened before with less, more, and the same CO2 in the atmosphere.
DRAT!!! Missed again, and again, and again, and …
Will they NEVER LEARN from experience?
The DMI Arctic temps are near the average for this time of the year yet the NSIDC graph shows the ice extent much below average. Something doesn’t seem to be adding up here.
