Last summer, Arctic alarmists got very excited about an early winter storm which pulled a lot of heat out of the deep water, and melted the ice edge back. What they didn’t consider is that the heat was gone out of the water, which led to the large increase in ice this year.
But it is worse than it seems. This year’s storms have spread the ice out – increasing extent and exposing more water to cold air, causing even more heat loss.
So the ice is getting more extensive and the heat content of the water is declining. Putting this another way – the alarmists are screwed. There will be a large increase in multi-year ice next year, which is even harder to melt.
Reggie has his Blow Torch ready for next year. He lost his matches this year, but I am certain he will replace those and have spares next year.
Does Reggie give blow jobs while waiting to use his blow torch?
-I am not privy to that and I do not want to be! 😉
Just means the AGWer’s will be complaining about the Arctic smell from all that thick, rotting multi-year ice.
Yes, all of that makes sense…. but will not escape the “magic” algorithm changes. The ice may not melt, but the public is certain to get a different story.
Greenland has a nice new Algorithm this year….

I’m sure there’s some way we can “adjust” for this in order to get a unicorns to unicorns comparison.
