In order to understand the magnitude of the NSIDC disappearing ice scandal, you have to understand how the ice age is evaluated.
The ice age is determined by tracking individual ice flows from week to week. In the case of the disappearing five year old ice, they had been tracking it every week for five years – and then suddenly claimed that it never existed. It defies credibility.
The animation below shows the ice going backwards in time to 2012. It takes a lot of “special science” to disappear ice they have been tracking for more than 250 weeks.
Just one more massive climate fraud from the team.

If you look at the two “alternatives” for week 41, they have also “DISAPPEARED” a whole heap of 3 and 4 year old ice as well.
Yes Andy, it appears that there is a lot less total ice as well!
Funny about that, hey..
ALWAYS the direction that supports the AGW SCAM/CON that Jimbo is a tiny part of…
the slime they use to grease the wheels, so to speak.
I suspect they KNOW what is coming over the next couple of decades, and needed to lower the starting point before the coming Arctic Sea Ice expansion.
Here’s an alternative Arctic sea ice age video going forwards in time from 2010 using the latest NSIDC v3 data set:
You mean the one “ADJUSTED” to show less Arctic Sea ICE..
Tom Karl, Gavin Schmidt would be proud of those “ADJUSTMENTS”…… ..
Did your mate Richard Betts have a hand in it too ?
You are a JOKE and LIAR, Jimbo
Perhaps if they “ADJUST” the Arctic sea ice down enough, they can get somewhere near the ZERO summer sea ice levels of the first 3/4 of the Holocene.
You better tell them that is what they should be aiming for.
I’m sure once they know, they will manage it….. somehow. 😉
The input ice motion data used for this data set is now derived from NSIDC-0116 Version 3 data.
Data only has one “version”, the rest is speculation, at best.

From accuweather : 5 glaciers to hike before they’re gone
One of the problems is the way they measure ice from space with microwaves is if there is a pool of water no matter how thick on the ice, then it registers as water, not ice even it that 2mm of water is sitting on a half mile of ice.
This is mentioned in Judith C.’s recent essay on sea ice.
“The powers that be” hold the purse strings, which are also the strings that make scientists feel like puppets. Up to a point they are so grateful for funding they seek to please their masters, but things have pressed into the realm of absurdity, and I get the distinct feeling some scientists are tired of being made to look like they are brainless. They are actually very smart, and their ways of “getting even” are very subtle.
