    This is probably my favourite chart right now.
    Global sea ice is gonna go ballistic once the Arctic winter starts building.

      I 100% agree and we have very good reasons to think that the present recovery will continue unabated in the future years: solar radiations on decline and ocean oscillations (AMO going negative & PDO already negative) are telling us so. I’m expecting more “good surprises” in the next 12 months.

    It’s over again that beautiful summer.

    Also prove that summer was warm in 1973

    The Weathtard Channel just reported that it is soooooo hot in China, that tires are catching on fire!

    I kid you not.

    And here’s me thinking that the Arctic pole was going to be ice free last year, or was it 2005, well anyway pretty soon innit, though Prof’ Wadhams has reined in his gob somewhat:

    Death spiral postponed – again……………or not and anyway does not equal CAGW kidz – look to the Austral ice cap and sea ice extent.

    Where did the data come from?

    Why doesn’t this chart reflect the same thing?

    I have been fascinated by the presentation of data on that website for the last 5 or 6 years. I believe it is the same data. It is just presentation and reference. They compress the chart to accentuate the downward slope. Then they stick it between their “30 year average” which until recently was that 1979-2000 mean, and the unusual 2012 year. It’s beautiful data, they just dress it really really bad to support their dream.
