Arctic Sea Ice Is The Same Thickness As 1940

According to figures from the University of Washington and the University of Illinois, Arctic ice thickness is averaging a little over two metres, down from a little over three metres in 1979.

In 1940, it was reported that Arctic sea ice thickness was two metres, down from three metres in 1900. In other words, the past 35 years have been a repeat of the early part of the century

By 1958, scientists reported a 50% reduction in volume – and predicted an ice-free Arctic in the next generation.

Bottom line is that the Arctic is cyclical, forecasts by Arctic experts are cyclical, they have absolutely no clue what they are talking about – and never did.

The most important thing to note is that starting graphs at the peak year of 1979 without bold warnings or disclaimers, is scientific malfeasance. Based on my reading, I would estimate that ice thickness has done something like this since 1940.

    gee, cherry picking the data, who’d a thunk it?

    No, it’s perfectly in line with main stream climate science’s strict Peer Reviewed™ internationally acclaimed best practices.

      To translate Niel… “We are all in on it and even if t is fraud, since everybody is doing it, it’s too big to prosecute.”

      Is that the same Peer Reviewed™ that also maintains the 97%©, and keeps the Climate Models® in lock-step with CO2 Level of Hawaii©, all of which is controlled by Mann-Maid Litigation of America©®™ ?

      • nielszoo says:

        Yup… with the IPCC (Cee what other calamities we can blame on CO2) tapping out the count for the band in double time. With the “pause” excuses coming faster and faster.

    Has anyone done any looking into this chart which they claim is a reliable measure of Arctic sea ice back to c.1952? Any rebuttals as to reliability, etc.? Thanks.

    It is settled science that the world began in 1979.
