The animation below alternates between NSIDC September ice age for the year 2012 and the year 2013.
Note the huge increase in the amount of white colored ice, which they used to call 5+ ice, but now call 4+ ice. Normally they publish a graph showing the extent of ice by age vs. year, but they didn’t include that graph this year.
I created that graph myself, and you can see why they didn’t include it. There is more than four times as much “white” ice as there was last September. This is the ice which they used to call 5+ year old ice. There has been an increase in ice of every age vs. last year, but the oldest and thickest ice has taken an unprecedented jump.
But the most important thing to note is that the older ice is perfectly situated in the western…

If the human contribution to atmospheric CO² is 3%, how much should Mother Nature pay for ‘wrecking’ the climate?
August 5, 2013
This year “will without a doubt” rank in the top five lowest levels of ice extent ever recorded in the satellite era, and there is a good possibility that 2013 could rank second in terms of recorded ice lows, said Walt Meier, a scientist at the National Snow & Ice Data Center.
There is a 100% probability that his 100% certainty was incorrect.
Walt has moved his attentions to the other hemisphere, and is now confused by Antarctic ice.
One scientist who is scrambling and who is visibly baffled is meteorologist Walt Meier, who seems irritated by the new puzzling Antarctic sea ice record
I am going to give Walt a big hint – for free.
The failure of 95% of climate models has made the IPCC 95% certain that the models are correct.
