Antarctic Sea Ice Anomaly Approaching The Largest Ever Recorded

The area of excess Antarctic sea ice is almost large enough to cover the entire state of Alaska.

    …and they are going into winter

    A REAL hockey stick

    Working on updating my charts to be able to show the highest anomaly from any year/month for comparison….I’ll try to get that up working tonight

  4. mellyrn says:

    Please, what does “anomaly” mean in this context? My online dictionary is not much help. I infer it means a change from something — but what?

    Thank you kindly.

    • joshuah says:

      Anomaly means the difference from the average value for that particular date (month/day), so you can compare ice levels across the calendar year adjusting for the annual melting and freezing cycles. So right now Antarctic sea ice is 1.6+ million square kilometers above the average value for early May, even though the absolute number is several million square kilometers smaller than it will be in a few months.

    • departure from the mean; in this case, I think the mean (of this date) of 1978 to present

  5. sorry, it is from 1979-2008 mean for the date

    Paging Al Gore… maybe the Messiah in the White House would care to comment? Hillary probably thinks it is in response to a YouTube video.

  7. Fred Fox says:

    Thin ice due to more rainfall due to higher temps. If you look at thickness, it isn’t there.

    zomg weather changes? Quick everyone panic and fund my study so i can live like a king by keeping you in fear!!!!!!!!!!
    A check is fine.

    “Global Warming” was clearly a fraud causing our geniuses at the National Academy of Sciences to bless and implement the insane spraying of 20 million tons/year of aluminum fibers since about 1995. This spraying has had the desired effect of reflecting sufficient sunlight to plunge us into the coming Global Cooling with a vengeance.

    Before this generation is over there will be world prayers for Global Warming. COLD is and always has been the implacable enemy, especially when coupled with our engineered food shortages.

    Well done cretins you will get your mass die off. Then what?

    • Silver says:

      Interesting statement. What was the goal of the spraying then? Was it a test and Global Cooling is a side-effect? Was Global Cooling the goal (and why)?Was it to reduce the number of people on the planet? Where does your info come from? Thx

    • Morgan says:

      I’m not really sure aluminum comes in fibers. I thought it was a metal. I’m also not really sure how aluminum would stay up in the sky. I’m not even sure how you can operate a computer with a ganglion for a brain.

      • Lou says:

        Sir aluminum comes in hundreds of engineered forms. A form often sprayed in our sky is married to poly fibers and designed to float slowly to earth and reflect sunlight on the way down. Please use your brain and EYES to understand what is being done to you and your progeny. We do not have too much time to react.

        • Steve Keohane says:

          To what end?

        • _Jim says:

          Funny; I never see aluminum tank trucks pulled up along the Jet-A fuel tank truck at the aerodrome … nor any aluminum ‘tank farms’ at the larger airports ready to ‘fuel’ up aircraft for another ‘run’ across the country.

          You would think (well, maybe not the Keepers Of Odd Knowledge Society or K.O.O.K.S. members) that such operations (aluminum foil in the skies) would be seen on our network of WSR-88D RADARS across the country. Even very light precip can be detected by the WSR-88D, but, gee nothing to indicate anything like Lou and his fellow K.O.O.K.S. claim …

        • _Jim,

          I guess you think fire can melt steel.

        • _Jim says:

          Just out of curiosity, #1 what kind of ‘fire’ are we talking about? Something fueled by office papers, furnishings, carpeting etc. or electric arc?

          #2 Are you a metallurgist by any chance?

      • PJ London says:

        Not to worry, if you stand outside on a sunny day, the fibres will come and land on your head. Soon they will form a covering, a cap or hat, and then you could join those people protected from electro-magnetic radiation (such as sunlight) with your little shiny tin (or in this case aluminium) hat.
        (off topic, but Ganglion is nerves cluster in the peripheral nervous system not the central nervous system, so no, you could not operate with a ganglion for a brain.)

        • Morgan says:

          Simple life forms have no brain. The caudal bulge in a flatworm, for example, attached to the eye buds, is called a ganglion. That is the neural structure commonly found in people who think commercial jetliners are littering the stratosphere with Reynolds Wrap

    Please note there are persons employed by our own federal government to participate in social media to monitor, and in some cases to participate in making outlandish positions and change the discussion. I note at least two here on this thread.
