Global Sea Ice Area Expands to Second Highest On Record, And Highest In 25 Years – Closing in on an all-time record

1933 ‘Consensus’: North Pole to melt, raise sea level 150 feet – ‘What Will Happen? ‘When The North Pole Melts, Oceans Will Rise 150 Feet’ – ‘Scientists’ Predictions’ – September 16, 1933 

New paper finds Arctic sea ice is controlled by natural cycles – Published in Geophysical Research Letters — Study ‘finds Arctic sea ice extent is determined primarily by the natural ~60-90 year cycle of the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation [AMO], not greenhouse gases. According to the authors, “Arctic sea ice is intrinsically linked to Atlantic multidecadal [natural] variability” finding a ~60-90 year cycle of “Covariability between sea ice and Atlantic multidecadal variability as represented by the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation (AMO) index is evident during the instrumental record.”

1887 article: Arctic seas were open for sailing during the Medieval Warm Period in 1122 A.D.‘VARIATIONS IN CLIMATE.’ Press, Volume XLIV, Issue 6903, 8 November 1887, Page 6: ‘Calculations for the year 1122 A.D…find the Danes and several Scandinavian nations going through the Arctic open seas.’

Satellite data shows Arctic sea ice coverage up 50% from 2012: ‘There’ll likely be more multi-year ice next year than there was this year’ — ‘BBC News reports that data from Europe’s Cryosat spacecraft shows that Arctic sea ice coverage was nearly 9,000 cubic kilometers (2,100 cubic miles) by the end of this year’s melting season, up from about 6,000 cubic kilometers (1,400 cubic miles) during the same time last year.’

Gore’s ‘ice free Arctic prediction from five years ago, falsified by nature itself — Gore 2008: Claimed that the ‘Entire north polar ice cap will be gone in 5 years

2013: ‘On the 5 year anniversary of his prediction on December 14th, 2008, the Arctic sea ice is within a standard deviation of the “normal” line, and global sea ice is actually above normal’ – ‘With such a track record, one wonders why anyone but the “galactically stupid” would listen to Gore, the great bloviator, on climate any more.’

James Lovelock was right about Gore, this from Climate Depot: Alert: ‘Gaia’ scientist James Lovelock reverses himself: I was ‘alarmist’ about climate change & so was Gore! ‘The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago’

Flashback 1974 – CIA blamed extreme weather on global cooling and expanding Arctic ice —  ‘Early in the 1970s a series of adverse climatic anomalies occurred. The world’s snow and ice cover had increased by at least 10 to 15 percent…Moscow region suffered its worst drought in three to five hundred years. Drought occurred in Central America, the sub-Sahara, South Asia, China, and Australia. Massive floods took place in the midwestern United States.’

Flashback 1974: NCAR Blamed ‘Dramatic Climate Anomalies’ on Growing Arctic Ice – Called Global Cooling The ‘New Norm’ – – 2013: Warmists Blame Climate Disasters On Melting Arctic Ice — 1974: National Center for Atmospheric Research, Boulder, Colorado: ‘In February of 1972 earth-orbiting artificial satellites revealed the existence of a greatly increased area of the snow and ice cover of the north polar cap as compared to all previous years of space age observations. Some scientists believe that this may have presaged the onset of the dramatic climate anomalies of 1972 that brought far-reaching adversities to the world’s peoples.’

‘There are strong signs that these recent climate disasters were not random deviations from the usual weather, but instead signals of the emergence of a new normal for world climates’


New 2013 Claim: Study Links Arctic Melting, Extreme Weather: ‘Researchers are finding a link with recent bouts of extreme weather. A new study suggests rapid warming in the Arctic may be altering weather patterns across the Northern Hemisphere.’
