Arctic Ice Area Identical To 2012

Last year  12,400,000 km² of Arctic ice caused a warm winter in the Eastern US. This year the identical amount of ice is causing a cold winter. Both years were +/-two standard deviations, meaning that they were normal.

Climate models can differentiate between normal amounts of ice one year and identical normal amounts of ice the next year, and hindcast whatever the weather was that just happened. The government has spent many tens of millions of dollars perfecting this technology.

    Interesting, but the chart hasn’t been updated since the 15th of this month. A record high in the making…?

    Interesting how last year increased so much before the melting season and how this year is rising quite rapidly even earlier, just an observation, but once the AMO cools, arctic sea ice should make quite a comeback.

    The problem is, the fact that nothing is happening is undetectable to the average person. But maybe if 500 years were compressed into one, the average person would be able to detect nothing is happening.

    And if the Arctic were to not recover – so what? For the average person nothing.
