Arctic Sea Ice Reaches Summer Decadal Maximum

Antarctic sea ice is near an all-time record maximum for the date, and Arctic sea ice extent is also the highest in a decade for July 25.

The weather has been very cold in the high Arctic, and it is  possible that 15% ice extent will approach or cross the 1979-2000 median line in a few days

Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Al Gore forecast an ice-free Arctic for this summer. He is a great hero and has made nearly a billion dollars off pushing the global warming scam, while I am considered to be “deranged” for posting these graphs from the Danish Meteorological Institute.

    Although it’s early days, at this stage the ice extent minimum could reach a decadal high this year.
    It will be interesting to hear Al Gore’s explanation, and in particular how he blames this on “global warming”.
    I don’t suppose we’ll hear much about it in the mainstream media.

    Mann says you got it upside down.

    It’s still vulnerable to a storm exporting a load of that ice, as has happened in recent times, so I’m not making any predictions just yet. Still, it’s looking promising.

    • Chip Bennett says:

      So, would a warmist consider such a storm to be weather or climate?

    • Dmh says:

      The Atlantic is relatively cold this year, I believe the conditions now are much better than 2012. I could be wrong, but I’m not expecting any surprises for the Arctic ice after the 1st week of August.
      Note how much greater the ice extent is now than 2011-12. It’s nearly 1.5 million Km2 above those years and with a completely different trend (derivative) for this time of the year.
      Another point is that even NOAA-CFSv2 predicted good Arctic ice extent for August,

      The whole picture seems coherent and pointing to an equal or better than 2013 level at the end of September.
      I hope it happens, it could mean the end of the AGW era.

      • Eric Simpson says:

        I’m with you, Dmh. My only qualm with your points is that I don’t think it will be the end of the AGW era.

        It will hurt the doomers. No doubt. It will be another nail that will be ready to nail in to the AGW coffin when the time comes. But first of all, the leftist MSM is not going to report it much. Imagine if it was a new record low in ice extent, the MSM would be blabbing about it night and day. Also, the likes of Mann and Hansen will just shrug their shoulders, and give there best excuse: “So what? CO2 is still a terrible greenhouse gas!” And maybe they will claim it’s an “algorithm error,” lol (yeah, and algore-ithm error). And the Chicken Littles will just keep plugging their propaganda du jour, and stop having a cow about the Arctic, as they will move on to something else.

        But nevertheless, if the ice extent is higher than last year, it will be big for us. And if the minimum is higher than 2006, it will be huge! It will just seem to be a trend going the other way, totally at odds with the “ice free Arctic” prognostications of the scare mongering looniticks. Of course, 18 years of flat temperatures is totally at odds with their predictions. And the ice core data, when looked at more closely, is totally at odds with their claims on CO2. And perhaps most obviously, the dismal failure of ALL their climate models is totally at odds with their predictions. But a lot of people just aren’t getting the news. But they will. Some day. Some way.

    “The weather has been very cold in the high Arctic, and it is possible that 15% ice extent will approach or cross the 1979-2000 median line in a few days”

    Any bets on whether they will suddenly implement a new statistical technique that lowers area estimates?

  5. Cheshirered says:

    Extent is soooo last year. It’s all about volume, now. If volume and extent are both up, then there’s a computer glitch. Albedo and amplification only work for AGW theory, never against it. C’mon man, get with the program.

    Name calling is aggression, aggression means fear, the more they insult you the better you are.

  7. Dmh says:

    This is a historic post, congratulations Steve for your persistence!
    Things should become easier now, because the AGW scam is nearing its final days.
    The Arctic ice was their last remaining lie and now they have nothing, I mean nothing factual to support their deception.

    Did that naughty algorithm leap from the south pole to the north pole?

    God bless you Steven Goddard

  10. Davol White says:

    As everybody in the world who isn’t a tin hat conspiracy theorist already knows this extra cold and ice is because of the global warming. Look it up.

  11. Anto says:

    No worries. They’ll just change the median line from 1979 – 2000 to 1969 – 1990. Hey presto, done!

  12. emsnews says:

    No, they will alter the past and then say there was more ice back then. As the ice increases today,they will change the past to have even more ice. This game will continue until glaciers are on top of Manhattan again.
