Arctic Ice Extent Quickly Recovers From November Lows

December 20, 2016

By Paul Homewood 




It was only a few weeks ago that we were being told about record heat and ice melt in the Arctic!

Meanwhile, all that has happened in the last couple of months  is that a lot of heat has escaped from the ice free ocean  and radiated into space.

    Also a lot of heat escaped from the climate alarm industry but very little light.

    No change there then.

    How inconvenient for the “Super Heated Arctic” catastrophists.

    Any sensible reasons for the anomalously low Hudson Bay ice?

    So, the ice didn’t all go, what a shame. 😦

    It would be so nice listening to all the consensus advocates wailing and howling, just to find in a couple of years on, it doesn’t make an iota of difference (and the polar bears are quite happy on land).
    When the ice goes to minimum at the North pole, the rest of the Northern Hemisphere soon becomes very, very cold.

    In NSIDC, today’s Arctic sea ice difference from previous minimum (in 2010), is only
    0.12 Wadhams.

    That’s probably within any margin of error.

    Off-topic but …

    There is truly a lot of unaccounted for CO2 out-gassed from volcanoes whether they are active or not —

      Particularly the out-gasing at Mauna Loa the worlds largest shield volcano. Oh and that is where the measure world standard for CO2. sarc

    What happens when Arctic sea ice exceeds the mean value ? Will they talk about how global warming keeps the air bottled up at poles ? Can we drag out the blogs as refutation of the next cause of global warming ? Does anybody remember the Great American Drought ? A lot of space was given that was caused by global warming. Now, it’s never mentioned. Show me how when things return to normal or what’s considered normal that’s climate change as well.

      rishrac, the point is, things are normal despite all the rubbish spouted by the CAGW lot. There is nothing occurring with the climate that hasn’t happened before. It really is a massive scam.

    The above link comes up with the average for November.
    Click on “Daily” and 20th Dec will come up.

    As we all know, the only change during the period of satellite observations is that TWO areas of open ocean, starting about ten years ago, have tended to stay ice-free for longer, as a result of comparatively warmer water pushing further North. The chart shows this effect clearly. There is no GENERAL retreat in sea-ice.

    Actually 19th Dec comes up. But if you click on it, to enlarge, 20 Dec comes up. Weird!

    Can somebody inform The Guardian, NY Times and WaPo, I’m not sure they were copied on the memo.

    I’m curious where all that heat went?

      “…where all that heat went?”

      It went not to Surgut in Russia — -48 C there, feels like -70 with the breeze.

      Actually I am not sure what -70 feels like, probably imminent death.

    ‘It was only a few weeks ago that we were being told about record heat and ice melt in the Arctic!’

    How many people died?

    Arctic sea ice extent is esoterica.
