Happy News For Alarmists – Not

Our moron friends are excited about a small area of missing ice in the Barents Sea, which Jennifer Francis of Rutgers claims controls the global climate. You can think of her as the Hank Johnson of climate science.

The problem is that the gap is there because winds are pushing the ice towards Alaska, where it is piling up and thickening – and will be harder to melt during the summer.

    You want to see this:
    “An Analysis of Arctic Sea Ice Fluctuations. 1953-77 — Journal of Physical Oceanography”

    the first page of pdf is 580…. you want to look at least look at pg 585 300 month time series of departures
    http://journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.1175/1520-0485(1979)009%3C0580%3AAAOASI%3E2.0.CO%3B2

    Come on, Alarmists can’t be happy.

    What’s really ironic is that incontrovertible proof that there is no AGW would damn sure make them unhappy.

    So why aren’t they showing the Great Lakes as frozen over in that map?

    Inconvenient ice?

    • Dave N says:

      Last time I checked the Great Lakes aren’t part of the sea, hence not “sea-ice”, and so not part of “sea-ice extent”. Still, they could have them in a different color than the oceans. Might also be to do with thickness; I can’t be bothered looking up how thick the lake ice is.

    Reggie will have to put his blowtorch into overdrive in order to melt the ice this summer.

    Wow, no ice in the Great Lakes.

    Who am I going to believe, the graph or my lying eyes?
