There may be more than 10 million square km of ice now, but government experts say that it will all be gone in about 60 days.

    This says otherwise

      • OMG! The Danish government has joined the vast right wing conspiracy!

      • No, the graph is right, but unfortunately, as usual you are wrong.

        Are you saying my two links are part of a conspiracy by 97 percent of climate scientist?

        What is the gray line in the middle of the shaded gray area?

          Reggie, paid by Brawndo says:
          “All you are doing is cherry picking by comparing a brief portion of this year to the four previous years.”
          Reggie paid by Brawndo, We apologize but we don’t use hypothetical models to decide what the temperature is going to be next week or the month after next, or what it was 1,000 years ago, we just call the temps like they fall. We’ll leave the conjecture, what if, what could have beens, and all the chicken gut readings to you and to your alarmist pals. In the long run that is the winning combination because soon you and the other alarmists will have killed off the goose that was intended to lay the alarmist golden eggs.

          Do us all a favor pal. Read President Eisenhower’s farewell speech, all of it.
          Better yet here is a video of Ike giving the speech in question on 01-17-1961.

          Ike mentions two looming problems one is the Military Industrial complex driving defense policy to win ever larger contracts. Starting at about minute 9, the other danger that Ike mentions is the danger posed by a scientific university elite driving public policy in an effort to substitute government contracts for intellectual curiosity, because of the mounting cost of university research or the scientific communities’ love of money. Reggie, Artic sea ice wouldn’t melt in your or in the other alarmists’ mouths.

      Simply throwing up a different graph doesn’t automatically refute the results shown above. (Warmist rhetorical strategy #24 – when faced with actual evidence, introduce a non sequitur argument or bring in some contrary data without going into the basis for the difference.)

      In addition, there’s a link above that the reader can go to. If you follow that link, you will find some interesting remarks (in red) about why the curve is higher now than before, having to do with no longer masking out coastal areas. This could well be the reason that your graph seems to show a lower figure.

    I notice that Reggie has completely ignored my post in another thread where I pointed out to him that several time in this current interglacial there have been little or no summer ice cap in the Arctic yet we manage to do ok with this loss.It is in several published science papers he never read.

    Such pesky inconvenient evidence must not be acknowledged by deranged warmists.

  3. Traitor In Chief says:

    Well, the nutters will just ‘Adjust’ the ice out of existence. They may get their ‘ice free’ arctic, if only from adjustments. But it’s going to look pretty silly when the satellite photo still shows otherwise.

    • There Is No Substitute for Victory says:

      A few years ago the alarmist “lost” a burning hunk of sea ice the size of California. All the papers and TV jabbering heads were crying about an ice free artic. Someone in Alaska who lived on the Artic coast called in on his satellite phone after a week of trying to get through to tell the alarmist that he found their missing sea ice, it was in his front yard all the time, hung up with a polar bear.

      He convinced the scientist that the in heat sea ice went on as far as his bush plane could fly on a tank of gas. Problem solved. In the future I think that maybe the alarmist should spay or neuter their sea ice so that the sea ice won’t wonder off again in search of a little action. šŸ˜†

    Probably this has been discussed on your site before, but why is the mean calculated from 1979-2000? Why not also more recent data? Starting with 1979 is bad enough, it being a spike year in Arctic ice extent.

    • gator69 says:

      Cherries my friend! I have the asked same question for nearly a decade now. We have data before 1979 and obviously we have continued to collect data past the year 2000. We also know climate cycles run in many differing lengths. The ONLY explanation is that the alarmists know if they include ALL data, what we will see is perfectly unremarkable.

      I have contacted the powers that be and was told they are ‘considering’ using a larger data set someday, maybe.

    • Sunsettommy says:

      Steve has posted in the past the 1970’s data along with the 1979-2013 data to show that 1979 was a peak year thus making a downward slope so significant to make it appear a catastrophic meltdown is happening.When actually lower levels of ice cover was more common.
