Global sea ice area is the second highest on record for Dec 16th, and the highest since 1988.

For most of this year, it has been above the 1979-2008 mean.

    Just hoping this is not 2009, and is more like 1980. Any reason to differentiate those two sea ice inreases based on AMO or something else?

    jsg,
    Ask 7 people, get 6 different answers, and one stares in disbelief – “Sea ice is all melted ’cause of carbon pollution.”

    Seriously, no one knows.

    Happy Solstice.

    the ”amount of ice” doesn’t depend on the ”coldness” but on the amount of raw material to replenish the ice every season. Ice is melted from below – on Antarctic by the geothermal heat / on Arctic by the salty seawater: http://globalwarmingdenier.wordpress.com/midi-ice-age-can-be-avoided/
