Sea Ice Extent (Global Antarctic and Arctic) – Day 87 – 2017

The first graph is a reminder about why I am not worry about the Antarctic.

The up and down oscillation from high to to low is normal.

It would be interesting if their had been satellites in the 60s/70s.

    Not to mention the 30’s 40’s.

  2. There is a vast amount of data concerning the extent of the polar ice sheets going back centuries available from the logs of the captains of the naval, fishing and whaling vessels who sailed in the higher and lower latitudes, but the “climate scientists” refuse to acknowledge it as they calm it is “anecdotal”.

    I had an incredible discussion with one such (who shall be nameless but thinks it’s all explicable by simple physics) who claimed that pre-GPS it was absolutely impossible for a sea captain to have known his position to an accuracy of less than 100 miles.

  4. It would be interesting to see some research into why the oscillation highs and lows have gotten more pronounced over the years. Either the winds have been increasing in intensity, or some other phenomenon is occurring to explain why the oscillation keeps increasing in magnitude.
