Arctic Ice Made Simple

Climate experts, global warming alarmist politicians and complicit mainstream media, tell us that Arctic sea ice should have all disappeared by now.
Arctic sea ice extent is recovering nicely, despite record outputs of CO2 emissions.
‘Global Warming’ theory suffers a catastrophic setback once again.
Ouch.

Science Matters

People are overthinking and over-analyzing Arctic Ice extents, and getting wrapped around the axle (or should I say axis).  So let’s keep it simple and we can all readily understand what is happening up North.

I will use the ever popular NOAA dataset derived from satellite passive microwave sensors.  It sometimes understates the ice extents, but everyone refers to it and it is complete from 1979 to 2014.  Here’s what NOAA reports (in M km2):

X-ray Ice Mirror5

If I were adding this to the Ice House of Mirrors, the name would be The X-Ray Ice Mirror, because it looks into the structure of the time series.   For even more clarity and simplicity, here is the table:

NOAA NH Annual Average Ice Extents (in M km2)

The satellites involve rocket science, but this does…
