Arctic Catastrophe For Alarmists Continues

The melt season in Greenland continues to be record slow, after a long winter which has brought half a trillion tons of new ice. Normally about 30% of the island is melting by now, but this year only 5%

Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI

Government experts will ignore this, because they are paid to produce propaganda for the White House – not do actual science or tell the truth.

Meanwhile, Arctic sea ice continues to track 2006, the year with the highest summer minimum of the past decade.

    Reblogged this on Centinel2012 and commented:
    Unfortunately the truth does not matter — Climate work is now being done at Dream Works and their ilk not Cal Tech or MIT or any of the government agencies.

    • All consistent with Climate Change Theory!!

      Massive snOW… HEat… coLD… hOT… drOUght… rain… its weather whiplash folks… get with the funding… er.. ugh… I mean the Program!!

  2. omanuel says:

    Steven’s actual, factual way of speaking, “Government experts . . . are paid to produce propaganda for the White House,” explains why the public cannot trust government science today.

    The US National Academy of Sciences pimps (facilitates the prostitution) process and may direct the federal funding agency (NASA, NSF, DOE, EPA, etc.) to pay over-head charges to the university or institution that operates the facility where the “act of research” occurs (like paying rent for a hotel room).

    • Jones: (Sound: Beep, Ring, Ring)… Mike, Mike… wake up…!!
      Mann: Geez… What now Phil? Look, I’m just about to board this 747 Aircraft, this flyin CO2 Volcano .. on a First Class ticket to another Climate Conference.. saving $$ World ya know $$ ha ha… what is it ??
      Jones: It’s GODDARD and his Minions!! They’re onto us!!
      Mann: Goddard!!?? I thought we arranged for… the .. tube accident…, ugh..
      Jones: MIKE!! Not on this unsecured line… shhhh.. he rode a bicycle..
      Trenberth: SNIFFFFFF… ugh, huh, huh line..
      Gavin: Huh, huh, yea, lines… always going up on the graph ..
      Jones: The Pixel counting Mike, they’re onto it!
      Mann: But I thought we deleted the original files, the Arctic Images… and sneakily upped the concentration percents…??
      Jones: We DID.. but somehow… GODDARD !!

    Throws a monkey wrench into the alarmist drivel about Greenland ice melting away.

  4. Great Article AGAIN! God help us all if an ICE-AGE really were to swing into full gear.
    Best Wishes,
    See my website for more on a probable coming ICE-AGE:

  5. Caleb says:

    This cold in Greenland is likely associated with the cold water that gathered in the north Atlantic this spring, and knocked the AMO down into negative “cold” territory.

    Likely the AMO will rebound, like it did last year, but the fact it is wobbling back and forth from warm to cold is IMHO indicative of the change from usually-“warm” to usually-“cold” that seems to form a sixty-year North Atlantic cycle. Dr. Bill Gray suggested this change was coming something like thirty years ago.

    When it occurs the sea-ice will increase. I suppose any Alarmists who have an ounce of scientific awareness know this is going to happen, and therefore, for political reasons, need to hype the dying effects of the “warm” AMO.

    If anyone has the time to go look at the old Danish sea-ice maps from August, 1938, they will see so little sea-ice on the European side that boats could sail up well north of 80° latitude and not even see a berg. Then the AMO flipped to “cold” and the ice came back. Then it flipped to “warm” and retreated. Now it will come back again. It is as normal and regular as anything involving the complexity of chaos can possibly be.

    • darrylb says:

      ditto on the AMO

      • darrylb says:

        Look for the possibility of shifts in the AMO and the possibility of a shift in the PDO and similar changes elsewhere.
        The result could be the reversal of the hemispherical sea ice trends, and in effect another nail in the coffin of the silly AGW conspiracy.

        Unfortunately, the applicable scientific word here is hysteresis, in this case the effects of worldwide climate mania, as will be evidenced in the current G8-1 summit will lag probably decades behind the actual truth of climatic understanding

    Jet stream locking in weather patterns again…

    • AndyG55 says:

      which is obviously a natural cycle.

      Hopefully a couple of really cold winters will make realise the farce that is the anti-CO2 movement, and countries that have stuffed up their electricity systems (UK, Germany and USA if the EPA has its way) will get back to real science and realise that to feed the world’s expanding population, we desperately need a higher atmospheric CO2 level and that the very last thing we should be doing is trying to restrict CO2 emissions.

      • cfgj says:

        Cold winters in geographically limited areas (parts of Europe, US East Coast) will probably become more common if the jet stream keeps reacting to the increased arctic warming. Of course, if cold arctic air ventures south, correspondingly some warmer air masses will penetrate the arctic.

        • Caleb says:

          You are making the assumption that the jet stream is “reacting to the increased arctic warming”. I would not be certain. The reasons a “zonal” jet stream shifts to a “loopy” or “meridianal” jet stream, and then back again, are not perfectly understood, The jet stream has been alternating for a long time, and if the earlier cases were not caused by CO2 it follows that the current cases might not be caused by CO2. It may well be that in times the PDO and AMO are “in sync” and make the jet stream zonal, and other times they are “out-of-sync” and make the jet stream meridianal.

          A couple years ago I became aware there were some strange events associated with the eruption of Tambora in 1815. I wrote a post,

          Later the post was published over on WUWT, and I got many more comments than I would have gotten on my obscure blog. One of the most interesting comments clued me in to a huge discharge of ice from the arctic, after that eruption. As best I could understand, the jet stream became so very loopy that something like half the sea-ice over the North Pole was discharged down through Fram Strait.

          Can you imagine the hubbub that would cause, if it happened today?

        • cfgj: What warming?? The Western Coast of Alaska is a Geographically Limited area… the entirety of Canada, 2/3rds of the USA, and the Greenland Landmass were record cold this year… RECORD Cold!!

          So really, what did the Jet Stream React to? There was more Global Surface Area at Record Cold… than abnormally warm this year (West Coast USA, West Coast Alaska).

    • Yep… jet stream shift is being ignore and overlooked.. similar to 1977..

      Alaska gets warmer… drought on the west coast… cold shifts east to east coast and greenland..

      Notice the Climate Change Hoaxers are ignoring the snow and cold shited East in places like Greenland..

  7. cfgj says:

    The sea+ice is in much weaker state (thinner and more fragmented) than in 2006. Interesting times 🙂

    • Caleb says:

      The ice is thicker than any other time since 2006.

      Interesting times.

      • cfgj says:

        Caleb, that is because the ice-extent has been so low making the ice relatively compacted.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Ah.. so” relatively compact” ice is “thinner and more fragile”…. really ?

        • Stewart Pid says:

          cfgj seems to be pulling stuff out of thin air to make his points …. actually pulling out of certain hole that shall not be named 😉

        • Caleb says:

          I assume you are saying that the thickness of the ice is more than countered by how much less the extent is. Hmm. How could we tell if that was true? Could there not also be a theoretical situation where the extent was less, but the ice was so much thicker it more than countered the smaller extent? Hmm. What measure could we use? I have it! Volume!

          Just scanning this graph, it sort of looks like the volume is close to where the volume was in 2006. What do you think?

    • Jim Hunt says:

      Caleb – I’d say that if you’re a big fan of the PIOMAS model then you should take a good look at the regional breakdown:

      Everywhere outside the CAB that counts is currently below post 2012 volumes.

      • AndyG55 says:

        I’d say that if you even bother clicking on Jimbo’s “Great Big CON” site, then you are opening yourself to even more propaganda BS than he sprouts here.

        Jimbo is a proven COWARD and a MIS-INFORMER who will not admit that, in the Arctic at least, the Holocene has been at least 1-2 C warmer than now for nearly all of the last 10,000 years, and that the world is, in fact, currently only just above its coldest period in the whole of the current interglacial.

        It is the tale end of the short warming period out of the LIA that he must rely upon to spread his rabid activism, because its all that he has.

        • cfgj says:

          So are you saying that LIA didn’t end around 1900 but is still about to end 115 years later? How come then there was a long hiatus in Arctic warming with real declines in ice cover starting in 1980s or so?

          Also. in Antarctica the Larsen ice shelves were in place for ~10000 years until early this century…sounds like a helluva rebound from LIA doesn’t it??

        • AndyG55 says:


          You cherry pick the very localised warming in the west Antarctic peninsula.
          It is obviously NOT a global melt, because the rest of Antarctica is gaining ice.

          Such a transparent and volcanic cherry pick. ! Try again, bozo.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Also, we only have real data on Arctic Ice levels since satellites started giving us measurements.

          Maps do exist that show low levels of sea Ice in the 1940’s, but that would never show up in Arctic propaganda, now would it.

          There is also the threshold aspect to consider, but that’s too much for your little semi-functional brain.

      • Latitude says:

        I don’t think you realize that those areas are not equal in size…..

      • Jim, with the shift East in the Jet Stream.. one would expect various geographic locations within the Arctic Circle, Alaska, Greenland, Russia, etc. to have varying degrees of decreasing AND increasing Ice Extent compared to a “normal” year…

        Funny, your own graphic posted as: “Temperature at 2 Meters” shows virtually the entire Arctic zone at Zero Degrees… in other words .. Freezing!! Where’s all the Melt Jim?? Beaufort only?? Right where the Jet Stream shifted Eastward?? Yea, no kidding, Beaufort gets warmer weather, Alaska too.. while Greenland gets a deep Freeze.. a stat conveniently left out of your piece ripping Goddard’s fine work here.

        Over the years there’s been debate back and forth about Arctic Ice Thickness as well as Extent… Goddard claims the 2-5 Year Arctic Ice has built up.. while you seem to cherrypick and focus on Beaufort… one small area…

        So WHY Cherrypick one small area of the Arctic JIm??
        And what say you on Greenland… the TOPIC here??

        In this Climate Debate some things never change… Lies, deceit, cherry picking, hoaxing… in the Arctic.. not much has changed since 1995… SEE FOR YOURSELF:

        • AndyG55 says:

          Pity we haven’t got satellite picks from the last 10,00 years, showing the Arctic as mostly free of sea ice in summer for some 90% of the Holocene.

          That would bring the current large expanse of sea ice into perspective.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Again the link to his lonesome BIG CON site.
          NOBODY IS INTERESTED in your lies and BS !!!

          You have NOTHING but propaganda and small-time mis-information, Jimbo, and you know it.

          Admit the truth, little worm, and stop squirming away from the reality of the lall but the insignificant last 70 or so years of the last 10,000 years of warmer temperatures and less Arctic sea ice.

        • AndyG55 says:

          typo fix..

          Admit the truth, little worm, and stop squirming away from the reality of all but the insignificant last couple of hundred or so years of the last 10,000 years having warmer temperatures and less Arctic sea ice.

          You really don’t have the guts or integrity to do that, do you !!

        • Jim Hunt says:

          Andy – My site provides vast amounts of data about Arctic sea ice. You, on the other hand, merely provide vast amounts of (vastly repetitive!) invective.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Your site provides ONLY that which you admit to to further your propaganda..

          It totally ignores the REALITY of the Holocene and the FACT that the Earth is actually at a relatively cold point in the last 10,000 years.

          It is one BIG CON !!

          And you know that, but are just too cowardly to admit it.

          Grow some balls, for once in your life !!!

  8. cfgj says:

    AndyG55 are you familiar with the studies on proxies of Arctic sea ice extent? Obviously being ice covered or free of sea ice during the summer makes a big difference for the organisms, which is then visible in the sediments.

    • AndyG55 says:

      First lines of the Abstract.

      “Arctic Ocean sea ice proxies generally suggest a reduction in sea ice during parts of the early and middle Holocene (∼6000–10,000 years BP) compared to present day conditions.”


      “Arctic Ocean sea ice cover into a regime dominated by seasonal ice, i.e. ice free summers”

    • AndyG55 says:

      And from the very early 1900’s

      This was in a small wooden ship.

      When was the last time someone was able to use anything but massive modern ice-breakers to navigate the Arctic.
      “Until 2009, the Arctic pack ice prevented regular marine shipping throughout most of the year.”

      • Jim Hunt says:

        In answer to your question, and assuming for the moment that you’re referring to the Northwest Passage, then October 2014:

        • AndyG55 says:

          WOW so finally , after all the warming of the last 30-40 years, the Arctic is now as navigable as it was in the early 1900’s !!

          Thanks for the support., bozo !!!!

          Now get the guts to admit to the last 10,000 years or so.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Tell us , Jimbo, how much do your Exeter Uni climate scammer buddies pay you to troll your propaganda here..?

          Will you at least admit to that !.. I doubt you have the guts.

        • AndyG55 says:

          PS, I’m sure most people have now realised that you are in cahoots with Betts and the other paid alarmista from Exeter Uni, one of the main UK centres of the climate scam.

        • Jim Hunt says:

          Andy – Amundsen took three years to make his way through the Northwest Passage in the Gjoa :

          The Nunavik took less than a month to get from Hudson Bay to China. Your knowledge of history seems to be strangely selective.

        • AndyG55 says:

          Your acknowledgement of history is of the very short period out of the coldest period of the last 10,000 years.

          That is what you HAVE to rely on for your scam.

        • AndyG55 says:

          ps .. good thing Admunsen had found him the correct route way back in 1903 , hey 😉

        • AndyG55 says:

          And seriously , are you really comparing a large modern OIL powered tanker to a tiny wooden boat.

          Just how puerile and moronic are you ??????

        • Jim Hunt says:

          Andy – I was endeavouring to make the point (obviously lost on you) that the Nunavik’s voyage was a commercial enterprise. If you want to restrict things to adventurers in small boats then how about Lady Dana’s 2 year circumnavigation of the Arctic?

        • AndyG55 says:

          WOW !!

          2014 vs 1903

          Thanks for making my point so very clearly !!

          You really are not very bright, are you child-mind. 🙂

        • Jim Hunt says:

          Andy – At the risk of repeating myself, thank you for making my point about “vast amounts of (vastly repetitive!) invective”

        • AndyG55 says:

          Thanks for making my point about you being repeatedly unable to accept the reality of the last 10,000 years and the fact that the Earth only slightly out of the coldest period therein.

          You are making a total fool of yourself by refusing to do so.

          Everyone can see your lack of integrity and your cowardice.

          But please.. do keep refusing. Its sooooo funny to watch. 🙂

        • AndyG55 says:

          Come on Jimbo, you can do it.. just admit…

          Its been warmer in the Arctic for nearly all of the last 10,000 years.

          … and this makes a total mockery of all the Arctic sea ice scares you and your Exeter mates are trying to push.

  9. AndyG55 says:


    Mark Steyn has decided enough is enough !!

    Going for Mann’s jugular. 🙂

  10. gator69 says:

    I can’t wait to see Jim to attack ABC for their inaccuracies…

    New York City underwater? Gas over $9 a gallon? A carton of milk costs almost $13? Welcome to June 12, 2015. Or at least that was the wildly-inaccurate version of 2015 predicted by ABC News exactly seven years ago.

    Go Jim go! 😆

    • AndyG55 says:

      Jimbo is in the UK, linked in with the Exeter Uni climate trougher hive so probably he is not that interested in the ABC science fiction.

      But there have been plenty of wild and wacky predictions on the BBC, perhaps he could take to trying to correct them……

      But that would require him having guts and integrity… so it won’t happen.

      • gator69 says:

        Tony is in the US, and not the UK. But yes, we all know that Jim is a rabid supporter of the Branch Carbonians, and would never dream of confronting alarmists on either side of the pond regarding their wildly innacurate statements. Jim even went so far as to lie about the Lomborg video I posted previously, when it disagreed with his green doomer agendas. Jim is fine with diverting money away from those who are dying right now, diverting that money to meaningless gestures that benefit noone but the Branch Carbonians.
