    Actually it is now above the average of the satellite era.

  2. D$ says:

    Why is the average only upto 2006 ? That’s now well over six years old ? Souldn’t hey be using 2012 as the base line ? If the comparison to average was more recent wouldn’t we be above the 25 year average now ?

      Alarmists love cherries, but only the cherries that they get to pick.

      It is a meaningless mean, that picks the largest volume years of the satellite era. I have written to NSIDC about this nonsense, and was told years ago that they are ‘reviewing’ the issue.

    • That’s the only way they can control the discussion – by allowing the holders of the data to determine what “normal” is.

  3. CheshireRed says:

    Please note that as ice extent is now at or close to ‘normal’ (whatever that is) the new buzz word on the climate block is volume,
    Memo to alarmists: volume is the way, volume is the future. Extent is sooo yesterday. Nobody, whatever they do, mention the fact that ice extent is now effectively within the range of normal…

    • Jimbo says:

      IF extent ever get back to ‘normal’ they will indeed pick on volume. They started saying that after 2007 when we saw an uptick from the 2007 minimum.

      People like Professor Wieslaw Maslowski should learn when to give up. After his 2007 prediction (which looks like it will fail this September) he proceeds to make up another prediction for an ice-free Arctic in 2016! Just 3 more years to go………….again. 😦

    How’s the ice volume or multiyear ice doing wiseguys?

  5. Andy Oz says:

    I predict that global ice will be higher in September. Climate science is completely compromised.

  6. Question is, how will they ever be able to prove a totally ice free Arctic? All it takes is someone in a rowboat finding a single ice cube.

    That’s why most of them are trying to hedge the bet – and say “nearly” ice free.

    Since they control the data, they might just get by with it.
