Record Sea Ice In The Baltic : “scientists say they have never seen anything like it.”

Late-season freeze sets Baltic ice record

Ice breakers navigating the Gulf of Bothnia have been astounded at the record spread of ice on the Baltic Sea, while scientists say they have never seen anything like it.

“Since record keeping began in the sixties, we’ve never encountered anything like this before,” ice breaker Ulf Gulldne told the local newspaper Örnsköldsviks Allehanda.

On March 29th, 176,000 square kilometers of the Baltic Sea was covered in ice, a record for the time of year. On a map, it means about half of the central and northern parts are frozen over. Far north, the ice is both thick and difficult to break through.

    At least they did not call it unprecedented. Wonder why?

    See what Global Warming can do – AGW can do ANYTHING, including creating a whole lot of ICE, more than has been since since the 1960’s

      This is Arctic amplification at work. 😉

      And Knowing NSIDC.

      When they show Ice in the Baltic they will show ice in the Baltic after it has actually all melted away. While showing NO Ice in parts of the Arctic when in fact it’s still there and hasn’t melted away and ships have been stuck in it!

    That’s exactly what some college kid told me a few days ago when we were discussing the very cold past couple months we’ve had here in the NE USA. Then some kind of drivel about how it is all the earth trying to heal itself.

      I can only shake my head – I know lots of people believe this kind of crap, and are TAUGHT IT!!! – by “teachers” who may well believe it!!!!
      AGW really the Church of the Empty Gesture, and is populated the Unthinking and Unintelligent – lets REDUCE OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT!!!! NOTHING WOULD LIVE ON EARTH WITHOUT CARBON. Good Grieve!

    “NCSE is pleased to announce three new additions to its Advisory Council, reflecting the addition of climate education to NCSE’s area of concern: James E. Hansen, Michael MacCracken, and Bill McKibben…”

    The icebreaker Oden used to be in the Antarctica (Used for climate research of course, since the alarmists were able to convince the Swedish government that there was no need for such a powerful icebraker in the Baltic anymore), but a few years ago the Swedish Secretary of State sent a note to his US colleague (Clinton) explaining that the situation in the Baltic demanded that the Oden must return to its home waters during the winter season. It was not a popular note for sure, but obviously a correct one. Sweden this Mars has been way colder than “Normal”.

    Nonsense. The current situation is shown at:
