    Multi-year ice is ice that has been around for one year?

  2. Billy Liar says:

    That’s shocking. What if the same happens next year?

  3. Andy says:

    How old is that multiyear sea ice in green measured in months ? From your 2012 to 2013 comparison it seems to be about 12 months, which is 1 year, unless I am very much mistaken.

    And 12 months is 1 year. So how can 1 year be multi year ? Unless 1 is more than 1 ?

    You cannot say there is a massive increase in multiyear ice when comparing ice that did not exist 1 year ago. That ice is 1 year old by default,

    This is nonsensical


  4. Andy says:

    Ice that has appeared since 12 months ago cannot be multi year by pure logic. It can be maximum 1 year old.

    It’s you who needs to show WTF you are talking about in this instance. Doesn’t make sense. Stop trying to grab headlines when none exists.

    Rest of your blog postings today are ok though.


    • ROFL. The ice was present 12 months ago, but was not multi-year ice yet.

      • Steve, while not ambiguous, the headline can lead the undiscerning reader to misconstrue your point. “wasn’t present in week 37, 2012” apparently leads the casual reader to miss the math and interpret, as Andy did, that it wasn’t present at all; when in fact, you’re saying it wasn’t present as “multi-year” ice. Dumb it down a bit damn it!

      Damn Andy, how dense can you get anyway? The graph shows growth in multi-year ice just that that big old headline says. Hard to understand? Jesus, Joseph, and Mary!

      It may not be “pure” logic but it is a normal age counting method.

      How old are you the day before and the day after your birthday?

    Some one needs to put up ice dam at the Farm straights, Multi year ice is pouring out into waters that will melt it quickly.

  6. Louis Hooffstetter says:

    And this is from Dr. Death Spiral’s bunch (Mark Serreze- NSIDC at the University of Colorado).

    It’s probably much worse (for them) than we think.

  7. Bob Knows says:

    Ice is ice. The regression to “multi year ice” is a lie that uses old data as an excuse to ignore how cold and frozen the Arctic is this year. Lies and lies. “Multi-year ice” is a lie and a misdirection.
