Arctic Ice Thickness has Recovered 44% since 2012


We now have a real perspective.  the Ice collapse maxed in 2012 as i predicted back in 2007.  The heat bulge produced by the 1998 El Nino was used up and the normal chill reasserted itself and we now have an uptrend that is taking us back to the original pre 1998 stat channel.

Once again it all appears to be normal variation and with the additional decline taking place in solar output the down side may well be deep this time around. 

The present balance of probabilities are all pointing down with little upside drivers available.

The rest of the world should catch on in a decade or so. 


Truth In Labeling At The New York Times : “NOT REAL NEWS”

Arctic sea ice thickness has been increasing for the past twelve years, and is up 44% since 2012. I calculated this by dividing DMI volume by MASIE extent.  (The MASIE records only go back to 2006.).

The Arctic Basin is covered with thick ice.

This is a change from ten years ago, when much of the Arctic was covered with thin ice.

According to this New York Times article from 1958, Central Arctic ice thickness is about the same as it was 60 years ago.

Yesterday, the fake news New York Times and Mark Serreze quite predictably conflated Arctic sea ice thickness with extent, and declared their Arctic melting scam to still be alive.  Apparently no one at the New York Times actually reads the New York Times.

That is the same Mark Serreze who predicted the North Pole would be ice-free ten years ago, and declared the Arctic to be screaming.

My forecast that NSIDC would rapidly ramp up the junk science and BS, is coming true however.
