58% Increase In Arctic Multi-Year Ice Over The Last Three Years

Over the last three years, the amount of old, thick multi-year ice in the Arctic has increased by 58%. The oldest/thickest five year old ice has increased by 147%. The area of four year old ice will nearly double in next month, and the area of 5+ ice will increase substantially.

Even more troubling for climate fraudsters is that this huge increase is occurring on the Alaska side of the Arctic, where it will be preserved and get older and thicker over the winter.

The Arctic is returning to the state it was in during the 1990’s, but you won’t hear any of that from NSIDC – who are fully vested in the “death spiral” meme.

    But, isn’t the Alaska side ocean temp. warmer??

    • rah says:

      Yes it is/was courtesy of the “blob” of warm water that hung off the Alaska coast through the winter and into the spring. But despite a minimum at the beginning of the spring http://nsidc.org/news/newsroom/arctic-sea-ice-maximum-reaches-lowest-extent-record the ice, including the multiyear ice, hang on until recently. The NW passage isn’t open and almost certainly isn’t going to open this summer. And all in all Arctic sea ice has been on the increase since 2007 despite a storm that really pushed it down in 2012.

      Face it. What they have said would happen has not and in fact the exact opposite is what is happening. Greenland gained massive ice this year and Arctic ice has been recovering since 2007. For goodness sake there’s still ice in Hudson bay! And all indications are that once again we in the central and eastern part of N. America are going to have another tough winter with lower than normal temps and higher than normal snow fall and coverage amounts for the third winter in a row!

      The propagandists even had to give up on their global warming poster child, the Polar bear, because data proves they are thriving over 90% of their range.

    Thank you, Steven, for confronting fraud with reality.

    • omanuel says:

      World tyrants have tried to HIDE REALITY from the public for almost 500 years (1543-2015).

      Power-hungry politicians and popes do not want us to know the truth: Politicians and Popes are as powerless as the rest of us over the force that controls and sustains our lives!

      Popes objected when Copernicus reported the giant fountain of energy at the gravitational core of the solar system in 1543.

      Four hundred years later, in 1945, atomic bombs revealed the source of energy in the core of the Sun, and frightened world leaders agreed to unite nations (UN) and the national academies of sciences (NAS) in order to prohibit public knowledge of the source of energy that powers the cosmos – NEUTRON REPULSION !

      I hope to write a short essay explaining how self-delusional tyrants corrupted science after WWII to hide their powerlessness.

    I told you so
    Anchorage (airport) and Anchorage (Elmendorf airbase) show cooling of more than 2K since 2000
    I can prove this from original data available on the internet
    we are cooling from TOA downward
    and from top latitudes to lower latitudes

  4. Henry P says:

    Here is another puzzle
    Acc. to Bryan Walsh and Pres. Obama (Time Mag,Aug. 16 2015) to combat climate change we must replace fossil fueled power plants with nuclear plants. It is common knowledge that nuclear plants need lots of cold water for cooling purposes. In fact, the fish around the Koeberg plant here in South Africa have all perished. Never mind that, the warmed water of the nuclear plant obviously finds its way into the oceans. Add some sunshine, and what do you get: more water vapor….Water vapor is a strong green house gas………

    Keep cherrypicking the short-term trends, Steve.

  6. Marsh says:

    By 2017 , The Arctic will be off the GW propaganda list , just like Antarctica has become… It’s a pity that society has to wait for Natural Variability to defeat the climate fraudsters. As others have implied ; there is a profound flaw in human psychology.

  7. Thomas P says:

    Maybe some more years of data would be useful to determine the trend:

    Cherrypicking the starting point and then including only three years doesn’t give much of a trend.

    Just received my copy of Mark Steyn’s book titled ‘A Disgrace To The Profession’ . I bought the book because Steyn is a very witty writer and I want to see what he has compiled in this book which contains “The World’s Scientists, in their own words, On Micheal E. Mann, His Hockey Stick, And Their Damage to Science” that will serve as ammunition when I come up against the “consensus” sheepel.

    I also bought it because the proceeds from the sales of the book go to Steyn’s legal fund for his battle against Mann and the climate scam powers that be.

    I believe Steyn’s counter suit against Mann could be one of the best paths we have to get the truth out about the fraud and deception through the required legal process of “discovery”. The humiliation and defeat of Mann in court would be humiliation and defeat for every “scientist”, politician, political functionary, that ever used or cited any of Mann’s “work” to support their own opinions. And such a defeat would be an extreme embarrassment to the IPCC. I believe all of this will come to pass and like many others am pissed about the seemingly never ending legal delays that have held up that process of “discovery”.

    • omanuel says:

      Thanks for the reminder of a way to help restore integrity to government-sponsored “science.”

    • Henry P says:

      Thx for letting me know about that suit
      I have often wondered when somebody would stood up in court for science rather than politics.
      I have also often thought that the carbon tax on cars here is illegal and should be challenged by someone in court. [there has been zero warming in South Africa since 1973]

      • Gail Combs says:

        Henry P,

        This is the second lawsuit by Mikey Mann that I know of. The first suit was against Dr Tim Ball.

        The intent of the suit is to bankrupt the person who dares to criticize the Hokey Schtick but not to actually go to court.
        Michael Mann in Trouble after defaulting to Timothy Ball: ‘Mann refused discovery requests and his lawsuit has failed for lack of prosecution and a counter claim has been filed by Ball’

        …And it get’s better.

        I always told you that Mann was walking into the trap of putting his scientific charlatanism on trial if he sued.

        The Defense for defamation or libel is the truth.

        The discovery of those files Mann and UVA kept out of the hands of Cuccinelli will be a game changer.

        Guess what, it also opens up a lawsuit based on the Lincoln Law, which is a law that imposes punishment on anyone who defrauds the American Taxpayer.

        Mark Steyn and National Review are going to benefit from this development unless Mann can find a friendly judge to make it go away.

        I am betting on a friendly judge.

        More: http://www.principia-scientific.org/michael-mann-faces-bankruptcy-as-his-courtroom-climate-capers-collapse.html

        …..“Plaintiff continues to evade the one action that might definitively establish its [his science’s] respectability – by objecting, in the courts of Virginia, British Columbia and elsewhere, to the release of his research in this field. See Cuccinelli vs Rectors and Visitors of the University of Virginia…”

        “Plaintiff continues to evade the one action that might definitively establish its [his science’s] respectability – by objecting, in the courts of Virginia, British Columbia and elsewhere, to the release of his research in this field. See Cuccinelli vs Rectors and Visitors of the University of Virginia…”

        Steyn’s legal team, aware of the latest developments from Vancouver, have correctly adduced that Ball has effectively defeated Mann after the Penn. State pretender’s preposterous and inactive lawsuit against Ball was rendered dormant for failure to prosecute. Under law, Mann’s prevarications, all his countless fudging and evasiveness in the matter, establishes compelling evidence that his motive was not to prove Ball had defamed him, but more likely a cynical attempt to silence fair and honest public criticism on a pressing and contentious government policy issue….

        It is increasingly clear that the object was to punish any who would dare to challenge the CAGW Hoax via deep pocket lawsuits and to scare others into silence. (Mann has an unknown Sugar Daddy who is footing his legal costs. Mann is just the front.) The hopes were to drag out the court case for so long that the honest scientist when bankrupt and folded. An actual court case was never the intent.

        What was not expected was the monetary support given to Mann’s victims by ordinary people. $10,$20, $100 by a large number of people adds up.

    Hi Gail
    It is good hearing from you again.
    What can I say?
    A lot of our (pension) money is now invested in this “green energy” nonsense. As a result the way back (to the truth) is getting more and more difficult. It would be a [financial] disaster if tomorrow the world would know that AGW is a scam.
    This reminds me of the days when we fought apartheid, here, in South Africa, when legislation prevented us from getting justice.
    Similar to the WW2 days, when Goebbels was in control of information (inside the Reich) and he proclaimed that all Jews were like rats that had to be cleaned up (remember Hitler’s eugenic laws?)/
    But in the end, the reality is that the truth always wins.
    Just before his death the apostle Paul looked back at his life and he wrote: I have fought the good fight. I have finished the race. I have kept the faith.
    Just keep believing in the Truth. It will keep us alive. Forever.
    Henry
