Arctic Ocean Almost Full Of Ice

http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/CT/animate.arctic.color.0.html

Ice area is now much greater than the record (high) minimum, which means that any new horizontal ice growth is irrelevant to next summers minimum – other than how it reflects current weather and affects future weather.

What is important now is the wind. If wind pushes a lot of ice out into the North Atlantic during the winter, then the remaining ice will be young and thin next spring.

If the winds don’t push a lot of ice out, then there will be a large increase in the amount of multi-year ice over spring 2010.

    In short, the Arctice is doing what it has to do, all the adorable critters like our friends the polar bears are doing fine, nothing to worry about.

    I found an article at Tom Nelson last night showing Polar bears do better with less ice because seals caught on the beach at low tide are easier to catch.

    I hope this means that the alarmists will have plenty of ice for the kool aid that they drink next summer.

    Same old story…
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    And thirty years hence …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    it’s melting …
    it’s freezing …
    Sounds like a broken record.

    Sorry for being slow, but what does this mean?
