Arctic Max was Day 73 for 2018

I think I can call Arctic max for 2018. The Arctic would have to gain 300,000 sq km to pass the day 73 max. Unikely.

So … 2018 was the 2nd lowest Max by 57,000 sq km.

  1. Wow – a whopping 12.8% smaller than 1979 – the highest recorded during the satellite record.

    What? Is there to be no natural variability in Earth’s climate and the reaction to such variability by sea ice, glaciers, vegetation, sea level, weather, etc., is not to be expected?

    Color me unconcerned.
