The Beaufort Sea, north of Alaska, is full of large floes of thick multi-year ice, that show very little sign of melt. The edges are sharp and clean, indicating that not much melt is occurring. The larger ice floes are 50 miles across.
Air temperatures there are forecast to remain near or below freezing for the next two weeks
So where does leave alarmists? They are screwed. If the water in the Beaufort Sea doesn’t warm significantly during the next two weeks, a big melt is unlikely in August.
Facts will not stop them from lying about it, however – like they do about everything else related to climate.
