    Not exactly a death spiral…

    Steve, been watching the ice in artic from your website posts recently. It’s bothering me that the NSIDC is not confirming the Denmark data. At first I thought NSIDC was average smoothing and the graph would catch up to Denmark website, but I am not seeing the turn. Any idea what is going on with the NSIDC data?

    So for the weather has been favorable. 2012 therer was a massive arctic cyclone in August, and, in 2013 the was one at the end of July and a second in August.

    Right now there is a lot of high pressure in the North Pacific … No cyclones anytime soon

    I think the blockheads know the ice is there. How many are attempting to row across the NW passage? Unlike in years past, no one is trying that little stunt. The game is over the fat lady has sung.

    Given the decades of records that the official agencies have happily told us that the warming continues, how is it that there is any ice at the North Pole? Surely these government agencies must have it right and all the ice has melted by now. And it’s just the big money shipping companies that make massive profit from taking the NW passage but charge us for the long route.

    Either that or I’m on the wrong planet and the government and international agencies are profiting from lying to us for decades.

    Looking at the graphic here, and your many other pages on this site, I know which is happening.

    Clearly those readings are a result of an AlGor(e)ithm error.

    Another in a long list of proxies that are known to strongly contradict the adjusted temperature records, while strongly agreeing with the raw temperatures.

    I have to say, every time I think about the raw temperature averages you’ve been doing, the more they make sense, the more they seem to agree with the evidence, and the more they appear to be the future of climate reporting.

    So. . what’s the difference in the above method, and . . http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/arctic.sea.ice.interactive.html — which is picking up no sudden slow down of the melt. Holding it’s own against last year, which shows last years sudden shift a few days out.

    Crystal Cruises plans its first 900-mile Northwest Passage cruise from Alaska to New York City – http://www.latimes.com/travel/la-trb-crystal-cruises-northwest-passage-20140717-story.html

    Hope they’re watching the weather . . . err climate change.

    Amongst the nonsense spouted by the alarmists comes intelligent thinking for the future by one country.

    http://www.professionalmariner.com/December-January-2010/Canada-funds-30-year-plan-to-build-icebreakers-Arctic-supply-vessels/

    In an announcement that promises to keep Canadian shipyards busy for a quarter-century, the national government in June said it plans to spend $33.8 billion to build new icebreakers, supply ships and other vessels.

    The national ship procurement strategy is part of a long-term maritime plan that asserts Canada’s sovereignty claims in the Arctic Ocean and Northwest Passage. Ottawa said it will spend CAD $35 billion on new vessels over the next 30 years.

    The government announced in 2007 that it intended to build up to eight Polar Class 5 Arctic Offshore Patrol Ships — armed 319-foot, 6,372-ton vessels capable of breaking ice over three-feet thick.

    Shipyards are thrilled at the prospect of staying busy for decades.

  11. There Is No Substitute for Victory. says:

    Well at least Reggie won’t have to worry about the Native Northern Canadians seizing his next row boat and crew. Canada is building these ice breakers in the Ship Building Associations words to combat piracy. Who told Canada that a Mohammedan from Somali eats seal blubber?

  12. Andy says:

    Ice extent has reduced very slowly for the last few days, I expect it to start to get larger loss per day in the next few days though especially in the Beaufort region.

    Very warm in Artic bay next couple of days

  13. Crystal’s cruise promises a 900-mile journey from Alaska to New York. That would indeed be unprecedented.
