    A couple ice cubes are missing. It’s much worse than we thought. We are doomed!

    Sea Ice extent looks very close to the 1979-2000 Median, Where’s the problem? Oh, I see, If the Ice continues to grow and accumulate further it will become a hazard for a lot of people during winter. .

      Sparks,

      Funny last year the sea ice extent was even LARGER. Must have had a pretty high sea ice minimum last September. But maybe there is actually more to it than that.

    Gosh, it looks like the Arctic may not be ice free after all! Of course it is getting harder for me to see my monitor through all the ‘blue steam’.

    Steve,

    you REALLY want to go there with this issue again?
    So if sea ice extent is almost normal now, does that mean you are predicting sea ice extent minimum will be around 6 mil Sq KM? I am ready with my bet right now if you are. Hell I will even bet on the Houston Astros again for the World Series. They CAN’T be as bad as last year, right?
    of course you might want to ban me now, so you don’t have the embarrasmment of banning me right before you were shown to be so incredibly wrong last year with that silly “lying” accusation.

      Who ordered the storm in August that broke up the ice? Why did Shell run from an imaginary 83 mile iceberg that didn’t even show up on the ice maps? Why did Glacier Bay melt 65 miles x 4000 ft thick x 1 mile wide 100 years before the industrial revolution? Stuff happens, its meaningless 2% of the surface drivel when winter arrives.

      Do you really want to fix the problem? … Why when a fish population is at risk of crashing, they limit the catch, but when ice extent is at risk of crashing, they don’t limit ice breakers. What used to be one solid piece of ice becomes tens of thousands of jostled, bumping, crashing pieces of rotten ice, more easily destroyed by storms and currents.
