    1. It won’t matter because if the AGW crowd is dismayed that sea ice volume is steady or increasing, they’ll say it’s extent that’s the important metric. Then if sea ice extent trends towards normal, they switch to talk about how sea ice volume is so much lower than 1979.

      So which is it? If one looks at what Arctic ice does, it’s a combination of albedo (reflecting incoming sunlight) and having ice to absorb Arctic ocean temperature flux as it melts. Both are important, but to me it appears that the alarmists are cheering for a catastrophe to emphasize a point about how mankind is killing the planet while entirely ignoring that big orange-and-yellow orb in the sky.

      1. Tru’ dat!

        Let’s see what happens in the next few years as ocean currents do their thing, we begin a solar minimum, and the beginning of a La Nina.. The perfect storm is lurking!
