The Heartbreak of 2012

Climate experts really thought they were on to something for a few weeks in 2012.

In a few years they will be mumbling incoherently to themselves  in the retirement home, something about deniers just don’t understand long-term trends.

    Helped by a massive hurricane that broke up the sea ice in the Arctic at the end of 2012.

    Nature only assited their hoax for a few short weeks.

    Unfortunately by the time the retire they will have brainwashed a couple of generations of children.

    The top graph (Sea Ice anomaly))shows a series of extreme swings from 2007 to 2012 after a period of what could be called a steadier state of gradual decline. Despite the extremes the last couple of years seem to indicate that a change might be underway, possibly those extreme fluctuations also indicated that, as something similar happened in the early 90s.

    Hmm, we’ve got Eddy, deVries, Gleissberg, Schwabbe cycles all bottoming out in the next few years. Can you say Dalton. Hell, Maunder. Then there are the nasty volcanoes that will erupt. It’s as if Mother Nature wants to teach the warmistas a little humility. Lovely creature she is.

    some would say they are mumbling incoherently already. along with the odd dribble and drool from the likes of phil plait.

    I keep finding more evidence that sea ice quantities in the Arctic and Antarctic are cyclical and out of phase with each other. Martin W. Miles et al has a paper suggesting 60-90 year cycles which occur as a result primarily of natural variability of the AMO.

    Then of course certain scientists jumped on the short term period of less Arctic ice, in particular in the seas off of Russia, to suggest with
    1)less ice insulation,
    2) more heat escaping-causing
    3) a weakened jet stream – therefore a
    4) polar vortex- which
    5) creates a blocking high pressure area – which
    6) diverts a hurricane which has a rating of only one — and
    7) walla! Super Storm Sandy
    3) casu

      For course all the volcanic eruptions around the Okhotsk and Bering Seas may affect the Arctic sea ice as there are one or two fairly active at the moment.

      Sheveluch, Central Kamchatka, (Russia) KVERT reported that during 22-28 August lava-dome extrusion onto Shiveluch’s SE flank was accompanied by moderate ash explosions, incandescence of the dome summit, hot avalanches, and fumarolic activity. Satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the lava dome on 24-28 August. The volcano was obscured by clouds the other days of week. The Aviation Color Code remained at Orange.

      Zhupanovsky, Eastern Kamchatka (Russia)KVERT reported that during 22-28 August the moderate explosive eruption continued at Zhupanovsky. On 28 August ash plumes rose to 3.5-4 km (11,500-13,100 ft). During 25-27 August satellite data showed a thermal anomaly over the volcano, but clouds prevented observations the other days of the week. The Tokyo VAAC reported that ash plumes rose to 4.3 km (14,000 ft).

      And Iceland has Bardarbunga eruption ongoing at the moment.

        Not to mention the ones we do not see underwater.

        June 26, 2008 Arctic Volcanoes Found Active at Unprecedented Depths

        Buried under thick ice and frigid water, volcanic explosions are shaking the Arctic Ocean floor at depths previously thought impossible, according to a new study….

        Explosive volcanic eruptions were not thought to be possible at depths below the critical pressure for steam formation, or 2 miles (3,000 meters). The deposits, however, were found at seafloor depths greater than 2.5 miles (4 kilometers)…..

        Seismic activity was previously detected in the same region in 1999, along the Gakkel Ridge—a 1,200-mile-long (2,000-kilometer-long) mid-ocean mountain range north of Greenland.

        Hundreds of earthquakes were observed over a nine-month period, with magnitudes between 4 and 6.

        This earthquake swarm was the largest in recorded history along a spreading mid-ocean ridge and prompted researchers to return to the area for further investigation……
