    And Antarctica, record ice. And right on topic Caleb today has started a brand new thread on the Arctic story “ARCTIC SEA-ICE RECOVERY — THE SNOUT OF IGOR” (whatever that means, lol): http://sunriseswansong.wordpress.com/2013/10/28/arctic-sea-ice-recovery-the-snout-of-igor/

      excerpt:
      “… In my prior posts I’ve mentioned some ways this autumn reminds me of the prelude to the fiercely cold winter (in the east of the USA,) of 1976-77. That year saw a “flood.” The flood was cold air, which came from Siberia, across the Pole, down through Canada, and froze the salt water in harbors as far south as Virginia.
      I am no prophet. However this current post will carefully watch the North Pole, to see if the center of high pressure I dub “Igor” starts discharging cold air across the Pole and down through Canada. … “

      It’ll be interesting to follow this.

      Thanks for the comment, and also the good advice you gave me, Eric.

      “Igor” is the name I gave to the cold high pressure that builds over Siberia, once Siberia is snow-covered. That snow-cover appeared early this year, and has already expanded to an area roughly as large as the lower 48 states of the USA. It’s growth is both early and fast. The cold it can generate is legendary. If that cold flows south, look out China. If it backs to the west, Look out Europe. But some years it heads north, crosses the Pole, and then look out, Canada and the USA.

    Coincidentally, the US is almost identical to what Orwell predicted in 1984.

    “Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary.”
    – George Orwell 1984

    I expect “Past Arctic Sea Ice Area” data to be increased each year to continue to show declines in current years, just like they keep cooling the past temperature data.

    The problem with Orwell’s 1984 is that we don’t know how the world would have turned out if he hadn’t written it.
    Some people seem to have been using it as an instruction manual.

    Mother Nature doesn’t care a hoot about the plans of politicians. Napoleon had his invasion of Russia planned out to the smallest detail, yet nearly his entire army was wiped out by a mere lack of “Global Warming.”

    In the same manner, Gore seems to think he is some sort of Napoleon. It is downright uncanny how wherever he goes, it snows.
