Arctic sea ice is in a life-spiral and is highest extent in a decade, while global sea ice area has been persistently above normal for almost two years. So how does the monthly Serreze propaganda report begin?
Sled dog days of summer
Arctic sea ice extent declined at a fairly rapid rate through the first three weeks of July, but the loss rate then slowed due to a shift in weather patterns.
Translated to scientific terms – melting since July 1 (shown below in red) has been very slow, and ice extent threatens to cross to “above normal”
Every single Arctic expert has failed with their Arctic sea ice forecasts. For the past 7 years they have been calling me “breathtakingly ignorant” for calling them out on their idiotic Arctic predictions
NASA climate scientist Jay Zwally said: “At this rate, the Arctic Ocean could be nearly ice-free at the end of summer by 2012, much faster than previous predictions.”
the Arctic will be ice-free in the summer of 2013

Because climate change in the Arctic region is occurring faster and to a greater extent than anywhere else, the Arctic Ocean may be ice-free for a short period of time as early as the summer of 2015, according to the 2009 Arctic Marine Shipping Assessment Report completed by the eight…

The Arctic is set for a 100% increase in September sea ice extent over 2012. Antarctica has also seen a record increase in sea ice over the past two years, and is at all-time record high levels now.
The press reports this record gain in ice as an unprecedented meltdown.
