Not since 2013 has Arctic Sea Ice extent been this expansive in the month of May.
Revealed by official National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) figures, sea ice in 2021 is also tracking within the normal range:
As of May 9 (or day 129)–the latest data point, Arctic Sea Ice extent stands at 12.953 km2.
Looking at the 21st century data, this is larger than any year since 2013, and also surpasses 2006 and 2004:
The Arctic was supposed to ice free by now, at least during the summer.
Hundreds of dire predictions have been made over the years, many of which shaped economical polices that we are now living with today, but all of which have failed:
The Arctic is warming, slightly.
And sea ice extent is lower now than it was back in the 1970s and 1980s.
These are the facts; however, to suggest that any sort of “tipping point” or “catastrophe” is on the horizon is a political motivated statement, not a scientific one.
A warming Arctic region is actually expected during prolonged periods of low solar activity (NASA) as polar outbreaks to the lower latitudes become more and more common.
In other words, the Arctic’s cold isn’t up and vanishing, nor is being heated by atmospheric CO2; no, it is instead being diverted south by a meridional jet stream flow–just ask Texans who lived through the February of 2021.
The umbrella term “global warming” doesn’t fit here.
Whereas “low solar activity” can explain why the far norther latitudes are trending warmer while overall global temperatures are trending cooler (see chart below).
AGW doesn’t have an agreed-upon answer to this phenomenon.
Of course, many additional forcings are involved in the global temperature: the main ones being ocean currents, cloud-nucleating cosmic rays, and volcanic eruptions — but ALL are tied to reductions in solar output.
“The Sun defines the climate, not carbon dioxide,” so says eminent Russian space scientist, Habibullo Abdussamatov:
“We should fear a deep temperature drop — not catastrophic global warming. Humanity must survive the serious economic, social, demographic and political consequences of a global temperature drop, which will directly affect the national interests of almost all countries and more than 80% of the population of the Earth.”Habibullo Abdussamatov
Abdussamatov’s solar projections from 2012 are proving correct:
And in 2016, he reaffirmed his stance:
“The quasi-centennial epoch of the new Little Ice Age has started at the end 2015 after the maximum phase of solar cycle 24. The start of a solar grand minimum is anticipated in solar cycle 27 ± 1 in 2043 ± 11 and the beginning of phase of deep cooling in the new Little Ice Age in 2060 ± 11.
“The gradual weakening of the Gulf Stream leads to stronger cooling in the zone of its action in western Europe and the eastern parts of the United States and Canada. Quasi-bicentennial cyclic variations of TSI together with successive very important influences of the causal feedback effects are the main fundamental causes of corresponding alternations in climate variation from warming to the Little Ice Age.”Habibullo Abdussamatov
The Sun’s historically weak solar cycle 24 took the majority researchers by surprise, particularly with regards to the very long minimum between cycles 23 and 24 (2008–2010) in which there was a lack of any activity at all.
As is the case with the failed Arctic Sea Ice predictions, scientists with a poor track record need discarding. And doing so would leave only a handful of solar physicists and space scientists that are successfully forecasting the cycles–with Abdussamatov being one of them.
It is these ‘fringe’ researchers that we need to listen to, not those of NASA and NOAA with their histories of failure.
A multidisciplinary approach is also the only way to arrive at any sort of truth.
Yet the scientific establishment appears to be strongly apposed to such a collaboration.
But then again, its job is no longer to discover the truth in the world around us — its purpose is to propagandize.
The science is never settled.
And while modern civilization continues to writhe in this dark age of self-serving agendas, virtue signalling and dreams of socialism, the reality of our cosmological journey spins on, unabated.
The Sun, it appears, is entering a relative hibernation, and the impact this will have on earth’s terrestrial climate is expected to match every Grand Solar Minimum of the past: cooling, struggles, crop loss, and famine.
Increases of a trace atmospheric gas will be not be our destroyer.
Global cooling, on the other hand…
The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
