    So true and most and highest ever recorded Antarctic sea ice extent ever recorded by satellites.

    Only Antarctica sea ice extent chart working thanks to another country.

    All other data has been down for over a week now. Why is NOAA holding back the data??

    • I wonder how many years at the rate its going…until the southern tip of South America gets touched by Antarctic sea ice…

        The following chart shows the Antarctic ice last October 24th,

        The amount of ice around the Antarctic continent is *huge* but the distance of the boundary of the ice from the southernmost part of Argentina (~ 4 o’clock position in the map) is also very large. The distance to New Zealand and S. Africa is even larger.
        I believe that even at the present rate of increase it would take a *couple of decades* for the glaciers of the two continents to touch at winter.
        OTOH, 2 decades is not a very large time in terms of the great cycles of the climate. It could happen, IMO, we could be seeing this in the 2030’s.

      They’re probably working on a new way of looking at the data which will make the amount of ice appear less.

  2. This amount of arctic ice is predicted by global warming. The heat at the pole is causing more water to evaporate which makes it colder.

    The antarctic ice is also predicted by global warming. The heat coming off the south pole is causing air to rise and this makes wind blow in and the wind-chill effect is making it colder.

    So, heat causes cold.

    Miami and Dallas are so warm that they are known as the snow capitals of the world. Especially in August. I hope people realize that I am being sarcastic. Most alarmists are so humorless that they would think I am being serious.

    Where in the world is the canary now?

    • X says:

      Last time I saw, it was in the Arctic, but after the last summer and the present fall they must have put the “canary” in another place… most probably at the bottom of the oceans. Poor creature!

    Most sea ice for a decade… If you ignore 2004, the 3rd dimension and any other algorithm than the outdated dmi that the danish meteorological office advises that we not use, then yeh.

    • Experts say the Arctic will be ice-free this year. What date can we expect their expert opinion to be fulfilled?

      • Atowermadeofcheese says:

        Experts say Steven Goddard will one day post a relevant reply. What date can we expect their opinion to be fulfilled?

        • And you are now spam.

          The Arctic ice reached it’s highest position since 2002 at the beginning of November of 2008, and again in December of that year.
          A few days before 2008 reached the peak since 2002, the year with most ice was 2005, still at the beginning of November.
          We’re now touching 2005, according to the above chart, and we are at the beginning of November.
          Therefore, the only year that is not making 2013 the largest ice in November right now is 2005 itself, and in the next few days if the ice continues it’s present growth it’ll be second only to 2008.
          If 2013 surpasses 2005 and 2008 in the days ahead, it will be the largest ice since 2002. (source JAXA)

    I can ashure you, and the rest, and to the CarnoNazis and AGWistas, goood old winter is back, and above the 70 deg(I cant remeber exactly and makes a mess out of Parralel or Longitute, hehe), the mild winters in the late 80, thure out the 90 and slowly crepts downwrads since, and it looks like a confirmation of the Muroder Cycle of a 60 Year amplitute.
    A slight altering of wether patterns localy or even to extent to greater areas of sea/landmasses, dont necesery alter the average range in any large way, thats the good thing with awerage levels, hehe.
    Within a greater downward trend in the late century, we are infact in, and acodingly in the historical charts moving into a cold period, and historicaly cold, the world right now is cold anyway, no matter the wacko fear of heating.

    Desterts are growing again, as expected to do in a wetter world due to the realitve colder periode, the desertification is reversed, and thats somehow, huh, bad.
    This growth of land is unpresetendet, as the desertification was in the last 30 years, when we went thure a Muroder Maximum.

    What I AM concerned about is the effect of the middatlantic earthmagnetic anomaly, whats the longterm effect if it grows, and do we have a problem with the weakening of the present ones, north/south poles.
    This will anyway alter the flow of cold, and therby alter the windpatterns and as a consequence, the wether pattern, and it even mayby give us some freeky wether sympthomes.

      “… ALL climate variability over the past 11,500yrs can be explained via solar activity and variability in the Earth’s magnetic field..the latter being a big problem, actually…”

      and the Bond Cycle,
      “… On the upcoming winter solstice [2012]
      We’ll complete the 4th eccentric beat in conjunction with the latest completed precession…all recorded interglacials have terminated at this time, in the recent era of dominant obliquity.
      We’ll complete the 23,000yr precession cycle…all interglacial pulses in the era of Obliquity dominance have terminated at the completion of the precession cycle.
      The next Bond cycle is due to initiate..this will be the 8th of the Holocene interglacial…all interglacials in the era of dominant obliquity have terminated on either the 4th or 8th beat (depending on the amplitude and synchronization of the Precession..but it’s always in sync.
      We’ll complete the 179yr barycentric COM excursion…these cycles always intersect at interglacial terminations when reconstructed.
      A heavy archeomagnetic jerk is underway…all interglacials in the era of dominant Obliquity have terminated during such event, this one is particularly intense. It would be unprecedented if the current interglacial did not terminate….”

    • X says:

      “… Climate change in it ‘s full context is always more extreme as the [magnetic] field weakens … you’re giving the Sun more access to the upper reaches of the Hadley Cells, upper level wind belts, etc. Alter the thermal-vertical temperature gradient and you alter convective activity in the troposphere, and that’s all you need to swing the climate…”
