Waiting On That Record Minimum

The experts tell us that Arctic ice is the thinnest and youngest on record. They tell us that ice extent and area are the smallest on record. They tell us that the Arctic air and water is the warmest on record. The tell us that warming is unabated and that 2010 was the hottest on record. They tell us that Greenland is melting at the fastest rate in 2,000 years. They tell us that the remaining multi-year ice is rotten, and that the Arctic is in a death spiral.

Given all these expert claims, we can certainly expect the September minimum to blow away the 2007 record.

Either that, or they are completely FOS. I look forward to September.

    The data adulterers love to take a few peripheral temperature readings and then extrapolate across the rest of the Arctic, always coming up with warming. After all, they KNOW that the Arctic MUST warm more then every place else, according using their models, so they HAVE to make the readings warmer, if not by simple adjustment, then by spurious data massaging.

    However, when the monitoring sites around the Arctic Rim are polled, you find that there really has not been any warming and the highest melting years were not warm air years; they were years where warm water entered the Arctic basin and melted the ice form below or the ice was blown out of the Arctic and it melted elsewhere. In 2007, the air was not warm!

    Yep, it was the warmest year of all in 2010, at least on paper and in the imaginations of the warming agenda’d dreamers.

    The ice doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. But just suppose IWB were right and in ten years the Arctic became mostly ice free for a few weeks in summer, would the consequences be that dire?

    I would tend to doubt it. There isn’t much transport of cold air south in the summer and in winter it’s the snow covered land between 50 and 70N that produces most of the mid-latitude cold and resulting snow for both North America and Asia.

    This game with Arctic sea ice is fun to follow, but it probably isn’t vitally important to the survival of humanity, or to the climate in general.

    well, considering that this will be the hottest month up there, there should be some melting going on, but, when all said and done, there will still be ice in Sept, the bears will be saved and seals will multiply…move along!!

    added up June, and we broke a long standing run of below normals months with a .1C above normal month for June!! Bring on summer!!!

    Absolutely. This year’s ice should be well below the level 5 cycles ago.
