History Of The 2013 Ice-Free Arctic

In 2007, leading scientists in the US and UK predicted that the Arctic would be ice-free before the summer of  2013.

BBC NEWS | Science/Nature | Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013′

Later, Obama’s science adviser announced that ice-free winters would follow shortly behind.

…if you lose the summer sea ice, there are phenomena that could lead you not so very long thereafter to lose the winter sea ice as well. And if you lose that sea ice year round, it’s going to mean drastic climatic change all over the hemisphere.

Tom Nelson: Complete barking madness from John Holdren, Obama’s science advisor

And now the Communist News Network has declared that the Arctic is indeed ice-free during winter 2013.

    Video of CNN meteorologist is absolutely fabulous!

  2. He never really did explain what this ‘phenomena’ would be that would cause the ice to melt in winter where it gets as cold as -40C.

    Hey, if they are going to lie ( and they are ) they might as well make it a big one . The question I have is how many people are going to believe them ? Will it be the same percentage as voted for obama ?

  4. I remember Steve saying that the Multi-year ice had doubled and even quadrupled since 2008. That is every bit as wrong as saying that it is currently open.

    Is there no admission of one’s own mistakes?

  5. @Will Nitschke

    I simply said that Steve had made that statement and I provided the link above as you requested.

    • This is a ridiculous response. You are clearly objecting to Steve’s claims. On what *basis* do you make your assertion that he is wrong other than your opinion that in your mind he must be wrong?

  6. @ Glacierman: “Nice job linking to the hacked web site not run by Steve.”

    That is not hacked information I myself posted the comment that Steve responded to.

    If 2013 doesn’t live up to expectations. Ice free will probably be redefined as any Sea ice less than 4 million km2. Will probably be claimed Ice free next time. 97% probability of unprecedented over exaggerated BS by Alarmist warmists.

    Storms breaking up ice isn’t melting anyway. Along with wind or current shifts. Of course It’s alway claimed as melting ice due to GW!

    The satelite sea ice measurements appear to be dodgy anyway. It appears to ignore large patches of sea ice which are still there at times and paints it in as open water!

    It’s getting so that Pravda is a more trustworthy source of information.

  9. Fred Fighter says:

    ‘Could be’ is not ‘would be’ It is dishonest to claim in the headline that the latter was said when in fact it was the former.

  10. RoHa says:

    “Communist News Network” for CNN? That is just silly. CNN is just another American news network, selling the story that the American Big Money power elite wants it to sell.

    • You are certainly entitled to your own opinion.

      selling the story that the American Big Money power elite wants it to sell…

      Well that much is obvious..that it is the “Communist News Network” doing said work may take a little more paying attention to figure out 😉

      And as pretty much every channel has the same news, I guess they would all be “Communist News Networks”….
