New Paper Indicates There Is More Arctic Sea Ice Now Than For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years. By Kenneth Richard on 2.

New Paper Indicates There Is More Arctic Sea Ice Now Than For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years

March 2017 Solar Forcing Of Modern, Historic Arctic Sea Ice Only Slightly Less Sea Ice Now Than Little Ice Age In a new paper (Stein et al., 2017), scientists find that Arctic sea ice retreat and advance is modulated by variations in solar activity. In addition, the sea ice cover during the last century has only slightly retreated from the extent reached during coldest centuries of the Little Ice Age (1600s to 1800s AD), which had the highest sea ice cover of the last 10,000 years and flirted with excursions into year-round sea ice. Massive Growth In Thick Arctic Sea Ice. Over the past nine years, there has been a huge increase in the area of thick Arctic sea ice.

Massive Growth In Thick Arctic Sea Ice

The Chukchi and East Siberian Seas had no thick ice in 2008, but lots of it now. DMI Modelled ice thickness Government experts of course claim the exact opposite, because they are paid to lie – or at least they were until January 20th. The 1988-2007 decline in Arctic sea ice ended when Barack Obama healed the planet in 2008. Historic Variation in Arctic Ice. Historic Variation in Arctic Ice Guest post from the Air Vent by Tony B The following is a guest post by Tony B on the history of Arctic ice.

I nominated him Arctic ice historian on WUWT when I noticed he had done a considerable amount of research. Historic Variations in Arctic Sea Ice – Part Two. Guest essay by Tony brown Foreword Note; Last year an edited version of this article appeared at Climate Etc.

This new version contains numerous additional references, graphics, quotes, more historic detail and updates. ‘Historic variations in Arctic Ice’ is a series of articles that attempts to determine the arctic warming events through the Holocene which commenced some 11000 years ago. Long Term Arctic Temperature Trends. By Paul Homewood As I pointed out in my post, Arctic Sea Ice Update, the other day, we currently have low sea ice extent and unusually high temperature anomalies in the Arctic.

Long Term Arctic Temperature Trends

Although much of this is just weather, there is an underlying pattern of warming related to pulses of unusually warm water, which have been entering the Arctic Ocean from the Atlantic for the last decade or more. But just how unusual are conditions there? Inconvenient finding: Melting sea ice may lead to more life in the sea. From the UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN DENMARK and the “I can hear sea ice fanatic heads exploding already” department comes this bit of good news.

Honey, I Shrunk the Arctic Ice! Not.

The notion that man-made global warming causes Arctic ice to melt took a major hit with a recent publication. The article is Influence of high-latitude atmospheric circulation changes on summertime Arctic sea ice by Qinghua Ding, Axel Schweiger, Michelle L’Heureux, David S. Nature, not humans, could be cause of up to half of Arctic sea ice loss, study claims. Natural processes may be responsible for up to half the dramatic decline in sea ice in the Arctic over the last four decades, according to a new study.

While air currents had been affected by human-induced climate change, most of the changes were the result of an internal variability within the system over several decades, the researchers found. And they estimated these natural fluctuations were responsible for between 30 and 50 per cent of the sea ice loss since 1979. Other climate scientists said the study helped explained why their computer models had underestimated the reduction in sea ice compared to what has actually happened in the region. Sea ice in the Arctic and Antarctic has been hitting record lows in recent months.

The loss of sea ice is believed to be accelerating global warming, because white ice reflects the sun's heat back out to space, while dark water absorbs it. Visualizing Government Arctic Sea Ice Fraud. “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.”– Upton Sinclair Government agencies like NOAA, NASA and NSIDC start their sea ice graphs in 1979, in order to make it look like there is a linear decline in sea ice.

Visualizing Government Arctic Sea Ice Fraud

NOAA claims they don’t have satellite data before 1979, but they are lying. The 1990 IPCC report showed NOAA satellite data back to 1973, which was much lower than 1979. 1990 IPCC Report. The Deplorable Climate Science Blog. In 1922, the Arctic was hot, glaciers were disappearing and sea ice never formed around Spitzbergen.

This year, there is lots of ice around Spitzbergen. ‎osisaf.met.no/p/osisaf_hlprod_qlook.php. Today’s Arctic Compares with 150 years ago. Imagery date refers to Google Earth capture of land forms.

By Paul Homewood h/t Tom0mason Repost from Ron Clutz: Researchers found that ice conditions in the 19th century were remarkably similar to today’s, observations falling within normal variability.

(Press, 1887-11-08) By contrast, the 1970’s were much colder with Iceland frozen in, global temperatures plummeting and scientists forecasting a new ice age. TIME Magazine Archive Article — Another Ice Age? You ask, I provide. November 2nd, 1922. Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt. Roger Carr recently wrote in comments: HELP WANTED: I am trying to purchase (or plunder) a full copy of this story, mentioned here on this forum:A Washington, D.C. resident John Lockwood was conducting research at the Library of Congress and came across an intriguing headline in the Nov. 2, 1922 edition of The Washington Post: Arctic Ocean Getting Warm; Seals Vanish and Icebergs Melt.The article mentions “great masses of ice have now been replaced by moraines of earth and stones,” and “at many points well-known glaciers have entirely disappeared.”

The original source of the story resurfacing recently was from an Inside the Beltway column of August 14th, 2007. The newspaper article was located in the Library of Congress archives by James Lockwood. Here is the text of the Washington Post (Associated Press) article: Inconvenient new study: Canadian Arctic had significantly warmer summers a few thousand years ago.
