Arctic Makes Obscene Gesture Towards Nobel Laureate

Nobel Laureate Al Gore predicted an ice free Arctic in 2014. Gaia may be unhappy about this, but this particular act of disobedience appears to have gone beyond good taste.

      Happens around this time of year, every year. Note the upticks in the previous few years, and even the 1979-2000 mean.

        Mother nature has a sense of humor.

      • Dmh says:

        I agree. The fact that it’s happening exactly at the point where it happened in 2013 and with a little higher extent than last year’s, probably indicates the effect of MYI accumulation in the same areas.
        It’s good for science that the Arctic is repeating 2013.

    1979-2000 Average. Whatever.

    • Send Al to the Pole says:

      Exactly. The mean should include recent years. But a spanking is coming…. maybe this year.

  2. Scarface says:

    The arctic disappoints.

  3. stewart pid says:

    Interesting that the old DMI graph is now flat lining while this bad boy grows quite the proud little ice penoid!

  4. Eliza says:

    Excellent, Excellent LOL

  5. ralphcramdo says:

    Do we have an arctic Gore effect now?

    “One of these days your sense of humor . . . ”
    is going to topple the one-world government Stalin established on 24 Oct 1945 !

  7. Brian D says:

    I suppose now that the weather pattern has changed, the ice will now start moving in different directions and spread out a little here and there. High pressure has been so dominant these past weeks, now low pressure has taken over. Very cloudy over the basin now.

  8. Eliza says:

    BTW I think they (NCDC) predicted that it would go OVER anomaly this year which is strange. I guess there covering their behinds just in case….. LOL

  9. Fred from Canuckistan says:

    And not a rowboat or blowtorch in sight.

    So sad.

  10. darrylb says:

    OK that is kind of funny. Hope the gesture becomes more obscene.

  11. Ernest Bush says:

    I see a similar spike in other years, but this is the earliest.

  12. EW3 says:

    Looks like a hockey stick !

  13. ossqss says:

    They have been predicting an above normal extent come August. That has not happened since 1996. Albeit, they have lowered this forecast significantly in the last few weeks.

  14. Justa Joe says:

    The Arctic needs its Chakras released.

  15. dbstealey says:

    As usual, the Antarctic is ignored:

  16. Robert Austin says:

    The Arctic is kind of boring this year. Reggie is probably relieved to be banned so he doesn’t have to make a fool of himself defending his blowtorch analogy. And where are all the eco-nut Northwest Passage frolics? and nobody seems interested in kayaking to the North Pole this year either. Perhaps the only “death spiral” is in the number of climate nutters that think that climate change has made the Arctic benign and human friendly.

  17. Gene Eggleston says:

    Antarctic Sea ice is actually expanding. Why? Because fresh water freezes more quickly than salt water. Tremendous quantities of fresh water are melting of the Antarctic continent. Why won’t you put up the charts that document the massive melting of continental ice?

  18. Eliza says:

    Totally normal upswing this time of year for Arctic. Someone needs to remind cryosphere today CT to update their Antarctic and Arctic ice extents.We all know that they are trying to pretend its melting all the time and they don’t want to adjust it to reality for as long as possible. It happens every time ice goes up.

  19. Andy DC says:

    Little Arctic melt and a record cold July in many places. Those are indeed troubled times for alarmists, but nothing a little, I mean a lot of data jacking can’t solve.

  20. Andy says:

    I much prefer JAXA to the COI graph for clarity
