2014 melt season in review | Arctic Sea Ice News and Analysis
Mark Serreze continues to claim that the satellite record began in 1979, which he knows isn’t true. NSIDC has satellite data for Arctic ice going back to the 1960’s.
The 1990 IPCC report had satellite data going back to the early 1970’s, which shows that 1979 was right at the peak, and two million km² higher than 1974- meaning that current ice extent is about the same as 1974
1979 was the coldest year on record in the eastern Arctic. Starting graphs in 1979 without prominent disclaimers that it is a cherry-picked, misleading year – is blatant malpractice.
Mark Serreze used to be a skeptic, before he went over to the dark side

Good find. Wonder if Mark is as aware of his own B$ ?

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”

Via High North News :
A Swedish icebreaker on the way to the North Pole has encountered heavy ice conditions and had to stop just before the North Pole.
The Swedish icebreaker Oden embarked to the North Pole from Svalbard last week but encountered difficult ice conditions not seen in one and a half decades.
The captain of the Oden icebreaker described the ice conditions as the most difficult in the past fifteen years.
The pack ice the ship encountered north of 80° was very dense, piled together through a months-long northward ice drift in the Central Arctic Ocean, meereisportal.de reports.
Overall, however, the Arctic’s summer sea ice extent is again very small; the Oden hit the ice edge only at 82°N.
Destination in jeopardy
The dense ice pack left hardly any patches of open water for the ship to navigate between the massive ice floes. The crew and researchers were thus faced with the situation that the North Pole could possibly not be reached.
However, about 200 km before the Pole the situation improved with the Oden encountering younger, thinner ice and tracks of open ice left by a Russian icebreaker plowing the area a few days before.
Massive ice floe blocks North Pole
About four miles away from the North Pole, the Oden eventually had to stop its journey since a massive ice flow on the top of the Pole prevented the onward journey, meereisportal.de reports.

MORE real-world evidence that the Arctic is not in a “Death Spiral” or “Screaming” and certainly not “Ice-Free”, as the mainstream media and activist climate ‘scientists’ like NSIDC director Mark Serreze have promised you for years.
MARK SERREZE – “The Arctic is screaming”:
“ICE-FREE” Arctic in 2008:
ARCTIC “Death Spiral”:
ARCTIC ICE “Death Spiral” | National Geographic
BACK IN THE REAL WORLD
DATA from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) record indicates how the Swedish icebreaker – Oden – found itself struggling in the stubborn, thick summer sea-ice that is apparently “screaming” and “Ice-Free” by now.
2.0 – 3.0 metre-thick sea ice covers a vast extent of the Arctic basin:
NO trend in Arctic sea-ice volume/thickness over the past decade. Though, there’s been a big build up in 2018 of 2.0-3.0 meter thick, multi-year sea ice that has stymied Oden’s travels:
TOTAL ice loss since the winter peak, has been the lowest in the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) record:
ARCTIC temps were below the average nearly everyday during the summer melt season:
THERE has been no trend in Arctic sea ice extent over the last 12 years:
WITH the Arctic in good shape, and certainly no sign of imminent meltdown at either pole, it’s hard to see the “climate crisis” that the mainstream media, activist ‘scientists’ and politicians insist is upon us.
EVEN harder to see how policy makers can justify deindustrialisation of the Western world through draconian, UN climate Paris-policies based on overheated UN climate models, fear, propaganda, and not observed reality.
DO politicians even look at empirical data or “the science” anymore? Or does the wicked truth expose their scam, hindering globalist intentions?
DON’T expect an apology or correction from any of these interest groups, now heavily invested in climate alarm, anytime soon.
TOO many jobs, reputations and egos are now at stake. And, access to unlimited “Save The Planet” taxpayer trillions, immune to oversight.

TWO years ago today, The Guardian proclaimed, under the ‘expert’ tutelage of professional Arctic alarmist ‘Professor’ Peter Wadhams, that ‘Next year or the year after, the Arctic will be free of ice’…
Peter Wadhams has spent his career in the Arctic, making more than 50 trips there, some in submarines under the polar ice. He is credited with being one of the first scientists to show that the thick icecap that once covered the Arctic ocean was beginning to thin and shrink. He was director of the Scott Polar Institute in Cambridge from 1987 to 1992 and professor of ocean physics at Cambridge since 2001. His book, A Farewell to Ice, tells the story of his unravelling of this alarming trend and describes what the consequences for our planet will be if Arctic ice continues to disappear at its current rate.
You have said on several occasions that summer Arctic sea ice would disappear by the middle of this decade. It hasn’t. Are you being alarmist?
No. There is a clear trend down to zero for summer cover. However, each year chance events can give a boost to ice cover or take some away. The overall trend is a very strong downward one, however. Most people expect this year will see a record low in the Arctic’s summer sea-ice cover. Next year or the year after that, I think it will be free of ice in summer and by that I mean the central Arctic will be ice-free. You will be able to cross over the north pole by ship. There will still be about a million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic in summer but it will be packed into various nooks and crannies along the Northwest Passage and along bits of the Canadian coastline. Ice-free means the central basin of the Arctic will be ice-free and I think that that is going to happen in summer 2017 or 2018.
‘Next year or the year after, the Arctic will be free of ice’ | Environment | The Guardian
WADHAMS’ 2016 prediction has been proven “alarmist” by none other than Mother Nature, in the worst possible kind of way…
AT the time of Wadhams’ claim, in August 2016, Arctic sea-ice volume was approximately 5 million square kilometres:
HE claimed in 2016 that by 2017 or 2018 “There will still be about a million square kilometres of ice in the Arctic in summer”.
EXACTLY two years later, Arctic sea-ice volume has grown to approximately 7 million square kilometres to date:
AUGUST 2018 SEA-ICE EXTENT
6 million kilometers squared
WADHAMS’ prediction out by only 5 million square kilometres!
ARCTIC sea-ice volume has grown from 5 million square kilometres in August 2016 to 7 million square kilometres as of 20th August 2018:
MASSIVE growth in both sea-ice volume and thickness despite the howling and screams of Arctic alarmists and record and rising CO2 emissions!
THERE has been a massive expansion in multi-year, thick summer sea-ice over the past decade:
PURPLE (2008) = 0.1 – 1.0 metre thick sea-ice
GREEN (2018) = 2.0 – 3.0 metre thick sea-ice
WADHAMS has about as much credibility as climate charlatan and fellow Arctic alarmist Tim Flannery who also assured us that we will “see an ice-free North Pole in 2018” :
THEY are not alone.
MOST of the fake-news-mainstream-media, grant-driven alarmist climate ‘scientists’ and “97%” of those esteemed ‘scientific’ institutions ALL promised you an “ice-free” Arctic by now, in order to push their fraudulent
global warming climate change agenda:

“THE global warming, which there has been so much talk about for such a long time, seems to have receded a little and we are returning to the standards of the 1980’s and 1990’s…”
― Andrey Smirnov (Icebreaker company rep)
Via The Barents Observer :
It is late June, but the winter has not abandoned the Gulf of Ob. The shallow bay, which houses two of Russia’s biggest Arctic out-shipment terminals for oil and gas, remains packed with fast ice.
It has created a complicated situation, Rosatomflot says. The state company which manages the Russian nuclear-powered icebreakers, confirms that independent shipping in the area is «paralysed» and that LNG carriers and tankers are stuck.
The shipping companies had expected the Gulf of Ob to be free of ice in the course of June and that icebreaker assistance would not be necessary. They were wrong.
According to Rosatomflot, there appears to be a need for icebreaker services in the area at least until after the first week of July. There are currently two nuclear-powered icebreakers in the Gulf of Ob, the «Taymyr» and the «Vaygach». In addition, there are several smaller tugs and icebreakers working in the waters around the Sabetta port.
According to the icebreaker company, this is the first summer in four years that the Gulf of Ob is packed with this much ice.
«The global warming, which there has been so much talk about for such a long time, seems to have receded a little and we are returning to the standards of the 1980s and 1990s,» says company representative Andrey Smirnov.
AND how we have been repeatedly promised the “end of summer Arctic ice” by the Climate Crisis Industry and sycophant mainstream media!
HOW sure they were that your lifestyle and “carbon pollution” was melting away the Arctic and drowning cuddly Polar Bears!

BACK after a short break, I caught this handy tweet via @SteveSGoddard that’s been touring twittersphere causing, no doubt, all sorts of pain for the Climate Crisis Industry.
STAY tuned for the lamestream media and their sycophant (government-grant funded) ‘scientists’ to hit back with another unhealthy dose of inane, transparent, rhetorical Arctic BS…
DETAILS Via Tony Heller’s The Deplorable Climate Science Blog | “Science is the belief in the ignorance of the experts” – Richard Feynman :
Arctic sea ice volume is highest in five years, and approaching the “normal” line.
It has been ten years since Mark Serreze and David Barber predicted an ice-free North Pole that summer, and I countered with an article in The Register “Arctic Ice Refuses To Melt As Ordered”

THE collective screams and cries over the recent Arctic “heat wave” were deafening. On cue, climate ‘scientists’ and the global warming-obsessed mainstream media took every opportunity to yell “CLIMATE CHANGE” – of the man-made variety, of course…
The Guardian wheeled out their usual Arctic alarmist experts to drive home the “unprecedented” event…

“There is no need to panic over Arctic ice this year, or any year. It fluctuates according to its own ocean-ice-atmospheric processes and we can only watch and be surprised since we know so little about how it all works.”
Even NSIDC’s (warmist) Mark Serreze admitted the slow October sea ice growth, which had arctic alarmists shrieking of a “super hot Arctic!” was due to “changes in ocean circulation.”
The growth of Arctic ice extent has been slower than usual this year. After showing resilience in September, ending higher than 2007, ice growth lagged in October, and is only now ramping up toward the averages. The map above shows the lack of ice is mainly in Hudson Bay, and the slow freezing of Kara and Barents Seas. Everything else is locked in ice, except for some open water in Bering and Chukchi.
In the last five weeks, 2016 ice growth has surged twice, firstly from day 303 to 314, and then the current surge the last 10 days starting day 325. The chart also shows the variability of ice extent over the years during this season. 2015 was the highest ice recovery rate in the last decade, while 2006 was the lowest. The chart also shows Sea Ice Index (SII) from NOAA is lagging over 300k km2 behind.
There is no need…
