Visualizing Arctic Ice Loss

It is terrifying to see that there is just as much ice as there was 18 years ago.

    The alarmist “scientists” said it will all disappear in 4 weeks time.
    How could we not believe them? Their science is unbiased. Just because they get millions in grants, doesn’t mean they would lie. Or does it?

    I still want to know why that Russian Ice Breaker was at the North Pole on August 30th breaking up ice that does not refreeze in summer.

      50 Let Pobedy? *July* 30th. It goes there every summer within a day or two of that date (since it was built in 2007). I don’t know why.
      It went straight there (NP) and straight back, so it’s not like it was doing loads of icebreaking. I’ve seen (in historic position reports)(Greenpeace icebreaker) Arctic Sunrise trolling backwards and forwards between Greenland and Iceland, looking (to me) as if it was trying
      (and failing) to break up the ice. That was a couple of years ago. They’re up at Kirkenes, N. Norway now, and may try the NE passage.
      (One to watch. ;-)

    It’s even more terrifying when one compares 2013 with 2012 or 2007 for early August (warning: this isn’t recommended for people with heart conditions).

    um…. I agree with you 99.99999% of the time, and there’s plenty of ice, but when I look closely, it looks like there is a bit less. unless it’s an optical illusion (looking at the extent of the edges). is it possible to get a rough measure of the coverage area?
