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.
