Sea Ice Extent (Global Antarctic and Arctic) – Day 230 – 2018

As we approach lowest period for Arctic Sea  Ice, note that 2018 is 1,000,000 sq km higher than 2012.

And 2018 is hgher than 2012 2007 2016 2017 2011 2015.

2012 is as low as it is because of a massive cyclone.

  2. Thank you for pointing out that 2012’s extreme low extent was NOT the result of a runaway melting Arctic, but of sustained winds blowing old, thick ice out through the Fram Strait. The narrative between the two cannot be more divergent, yet the former is a lie while the latter is reality.

  3. Let’s just say that the trend of the past couple days continues, and on day 250 we’re matched with the 2013 extent, and the summer melt is over. Within days a whole slew of climate alarmists sorts are going to be looking for ways to show that they need to update [adjust] the data. Or, studies will be quickly be thrown together theorizing on how AGW is currently causing the shift.
