Record Slow Arctic Ice Area Loss

The last week in July blew away all records for slow ice area loss, with less than 1/20th the loss that occurred in 1985. All that thin, rotten, decayed ice just refused to melt.

Last week, NSIDC said :

Back when the sea was thick and lasted for years, cyclones tended to spread the ice out and actually increase its extent, said Julienne Stroeve of the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. Now, when ice gets spread out, it simply breaks up and disappears.

“As our ice cover has thinned, some of our old rules are changing,” said Stroeve.

The rules are changing. Low solar activity is freezing the Arctic. The CO2 scam is in its death throes.

    Unprecedented!

    The “climate scientists” are going to need more funding to study why this is happening.

    I guess she was right about her rules being changed. Is it to late to say “We told you so”! 😉

    “The CO2 scam is in its death throes…” I hope they are LOUD, extended, and unmistakable, so that NO ONE can miss them.

    They aren’t going to stop.
    In too deep.
    If they admitted that they were wrong, careers would be over.
    History channel and Science channel TV shows would need to be reedited to remove all the scary endings about global warming.
    Money would need to be spent to correct all the misinformation.
    Just last night a TV show said that twice as much CO2 in the atmosphere would be deadly.
    It killed the Sabertooth tiger, and Giant Sloth.
    It has become clear that whatever planet they are studying is not the one we live on.

    And in today’s paper a nice article about how they intend to cut down forests and plant solar panels.

    Looks like this guy kicked Reggie’s ass, and then inserted the blowtorch.

    A nearly meaningless cherry-picked graphic. Ice loss during last week in July?? Maybe its low because there was so much melting earlier in the year. It scares me that the average denialist is allowed to drive on public roads without supervision. Idiots.

    • Ice extent is the highest since 2006.

      Are you people actually as stupid as you pretend to be?

      • gator69 says:

        Yep! Those ice denialists should come equipped with drool cups! 😆

      • Olaf Koenders says:

        Nice rebuttal Steve. I doubt that got him checking for more facts on his position though. Sounds like he was a dyed in the wool CAGWist from birth. THIS guy’s afraid WE drive on public roads? I think his headlights are off.

        • Jimbo says:

          The fact that William said “Maybe” shows you he’s new to this topic. Feel sorry for him, he needs vital mental care.

      • William says:

        Talk about pretending: “Steven Goddard” is a pseudonym used by an anonymous climate denialist crank, so incredibly sloppy that he even embarrassed arch climate denier Anthony Watts…..”

        Sea ice level is currently 2 (two) sd lower than long term mean. Steve, do you have a clue what a sd is?

        Note: I’m done with this blog, ran across it by accident and was appalled by the stupidity. But life is too short to communicate with you folks. Must be hard, down deep I suspect many of you know history and the science is not on your side. Just because anthropogenic climate change is extremely inconvenient for conservatives (i.e government action is essential to solve the problem), doesn’t mean its not real.

  9. barry says:

    “Ice extent is the highest since 2006”

    After a record slow melt in the last week that beat the slow-melt record in 85?

    That’s impossible. There must have been urban heat islands in the Arctic back then.

      Santa’s workshop mothballed their coal fired furnace, and switched to propane.

      • Eric Webb (weather advance) says:

        Oh maybe they could watch Al Gore on TV, with all the hot air that comes out of his mouth that’ll keep them warm, …….oh wait, he’s not on TV anymore, sold that channel of his to terrorists. Guess they’re just gonna have to just burn coal, as usual.

    • gator69 says:

      “…but we have a message that transcends political affiliation: the United States must move now on substantive steps to curb climate change, at home and internationally.”

      Hey! Why not regulate those pesky tides first? Then maybe we can get the Sun and Moon to work as they should, one for day and the other for night.

      F’ing moron. 😆

  10. I appreciate your de-bunking; but this strikes me as a strategy too similar to the alarmism of the AGW zealots. Is it really important the the ice didn’t melt much for one month? This has happened in other months and is not really extraordinary. People might take this graph to mean more than it does and say there is no warming, which is not the point. The point is that the warming is part of a cycle right?

  11. Mariana Torres says:

    I agree with SG this is REALLY the end of the AGW scam IF the ice melt continues as is. This ARCTIC ICE Thingy has been THE ICON of AGW (which is complete nonsense anyway as SH ice is REALLY REALLY increasing). Me thinks solar minima is beginning to kick in will take another year to notice falls in temps

    “Sea ice level is currently 2 (two) sd lower than long term mean. Steve, do you have a clue what a sd is?”

    Do you mean the meaningless mean? 😆

    The mean that stopped a dozen years ago? That ‘long term’ mean, of 21 whole years? 😆

    Yep! Leftists have a mental disorder and believe whatever fits their world view, or their meaningless models. To them the MWP, RWP and LIA are not only inconvenient, they never existed. This is why they cling to model driven drivel and their leftists fantasies of stable climate and starving eutopias.

    Good riddance moron.
