Ten year hiatus in Arctic Sea Ice extent loss

http://www.thegwpf.com/a-ten-year-hiatus-in-arctic-ice-decline/

That’s right it’s been 10 years since we have had a significant drop in Arctic Sea Ice extent numbers….and yet we live in a warming world according to NASA and NOAA lol. The anomalous year in the past decade of course is 2012 which the warmists blame on heat and NOT ARCTIC STORMS, the real cause for the ice drop

 

 

Samoans in disbelief after hailstorm hits Samoa

Everybody knows ice doesn’t fall in the tropics right, tell that to the citizens of Samoa. That’s right SAMOA, the average September temperature in Samoa is roughly 29C. This an extremely rare occurrence that may become more commonplace due to the atmospheric changes from a weakening magnetosphere and the grand solar minimum.

Twin Cities Potential Floods

There is potential for some major flooding tonight in the Twin Cities as a low pressure system could dump heavy rains on Minneapolis and St. Paul. Twin Cities could see 2 to 4 inches of rain. Widespread rains from 1 to 3 inches and could be even higher amounts through Thursday. 2 to 4 inches could fall in SE MN and West Central Wisconsin. Flash flooding is the main concern and river flooding as well. Please heed the warnings as they will come in and mind the safety precautions. Be safe! ~Nicholas

Arctic Plateau Continues

Of course if you mention a recovery to a warmists they are like looking for 1980s numbers immediately… never mind extent is a million sq kilometers above the bottom and that refreezing happened this year 4 days sooner than average

Science Matters

A year ago MASIE results showed clearly that the decline of ice prior to 2007 had stabilized and increased a bit.  The graph below displays the plateau of annual average ice extents based on October 1 to September 30.  In 2 weeks we can add 2016 and see how the trend changes.

The monthly average extent for September is the climate statistic, since daily reports vary greatly due to weather, ice movements and darkening conditions, just some of the factors making it difficult to measure anything in the Arctic.

Halfway through September, we can compare extents for day 260, the average day for annual minimums. The table below shows MASIE extents in M km2 on day 260 for significant years in the last decade.

Arctic Regions 2007 2012 2014 2015 2016
Central Arctic Sea 2.67 2.64 2.98 2.93 2.92
BCE 0.5 0.31 1.38 0.89 0.52
Greenland & CAA 0.56 0.41 0.55 0.46 0.45
Bits & Pieces 0.32
