Sharp Uptick in Arctic Sea Ice: Extent on course to be the Highest in 15 years

Arctic Sea Ice Extent has been holding exceptionally well during the 2021 summer melt season.

Throughout August, higher volumes than usual have survived due to cold conditions and favorable wind patterns.

As a result, Arctic Sea Ice Extent is now the highest in 8 years, and, if this year’s trajectory continues for another week or two (which is expected), 2021 will achieve the ‘healthiest’ extent of the past 15 years (since 2006).

Only 2014, 2013, and 2009 remain in its way–though the gap is narrowing, fast:

2021 Ice Extent is higher than ALL years since 2006 (excluding 2014, 2013, & 2009, which are set to surpassed within the next few weeks) [NSIDC]

Ordinarily, the highest Arctic Sea Ice Extent since 2006 wouldn’t be anything to write home about.

But we don’t live in an ordinary world.

We exist in a orchestrated narrative of ‘catastrophic global warming’ in which linearly rising temperatures are threatening to melt ALL the ice at the poles, flood cities, and wipe entire nations off the map turn. This is an existential threat to humanity, we’re told, daily; one which requires political intervention, higher taxes, and the further curtailing of our freedoms, i.e. ‘climate lockdowns‘.

So yes, in today’s paradigm of phony temperature graphs and incessantly apocalyptic mainstream media publications, Arctic Sea Ice Extent reaching its highest levels since 2006 is something to write home about.

Such an uptick –if we’re to believe ‘the science’– simply shouldn’t be possible: the ice sheet was supposed to have been ice free by the summer of 2008, and then, when that date uneventfully passed, by 2012, and then by 2013, then 2015, then 2016, and now… well, in 12 years time…? (I’m not exactly sure where the current ‘stab in the dark’ has us…)

The Arctic is the poster child for global warming — if it fails to melt, the IPCC hasn’t a leg to stand on, particularly given the fact that the global average temperature has also refused to play ball in recent years (down some 0.7C since 2016):

And all this is without even mentioning perhaps the largest spanner in the works: the goings-on at the South Pole–home to 90% of Earth’s freshwater.

Across the Southern Hemisphere, the ice trend has been one of growth for the past 40+ years (the satellite era):

After a drop-off in 2015-2019, ice at the South Pole has rebounded strongly in 2020 and 2021, to the levels of some 3-decades ago — this reality maintains the trend of significant growth registered since 1979 of approx 1% per decade.

The year really is a doozy, and is proving impossible for the AGW party to explain-away.

In the 42 years of satellite data, Antarctic Sea Ice Extent in 2021 is the fifth highest on record — bested only by the exceptionally strong years of 2015, 2014, 2010, and 2006:

The above graph is admittedly a little busy, so here’s an easier way to convey the state of growth…

This year’s Antarctic Sea Ice Extent is tracking well-above EVERY multidecadal average the NSIDC has to offer:

If the alarmists insist on bleating “climate change” re Antarctic, that’s all well and good, but they must admit that the change is one of “falling temperatures” and “a stark accumulation of snow and ice”, as that’s what the data reveals is occurring.

But good luck crowbarring that into the AGW theory…

And while we’re on the topic of polar ice sheets, here’s the state of Greenland in the summer of 2021:

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activitycloud-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.

    The news will tell us all about the day of the record melt and about the day that it rained on the highest peak of Greenland and turn it all into fear porn.

    Do you want to cool it down or not?

    It’s getting hot in here!

    When the water evaporated from the surface, the latent heat of evaporation was taken from the environment at the surface.

    When the water vapor condensed to form clouds, the latent heat of evaporation was released into the upper atmosphere, where it wasn’t heating up the surface.

    Then it rained on a peak, where the temperature of the surface was probably a tid bit nipply, which transferred heat from the rain to the ground.

    Thus, heat was moved from warmer to colder.

    Greenland can take the heat. Greenland is in the upper northern latitudes, so it’s cold up there. Furthermore, that is where atmospheric circulation takes the heat to cool it down.

    There was an extended drought over a very large area. Dry ground heats up more rapidly than wet ground. There is a lot of heat that needs a sink, until the rain has a chance to spread around, cool it down and keep it cooler.

    Tag! Greenland is it!

      Was this not the day the CME was supposed to hit? I seem to be having some electronic difficulties. One of my email accounts stopped working, and I’m having trouble posting comments on a video. I just uploaded a video on my youtube channel so I hope that’s ok.

      I’m wondering what effect another Carrington-like event might have on metal or electronics within the human body, like metal dental fillings, shrapnel, heart regulators, the chip? Will they heat up? Come to think of it, will electrical wiring heat up, or just electrical devices? Will they fry if they are turned off? Might be good to know some of these things in advance.

    Remember in July when those alarmists predicted a 4.37 million km summer extent? It is on track to be about 5.0-5.1 million km summer minimum. The arctic is cooling, and conveniently many of the arctic sea ice graphs have also disappeared.

    The fact that sea-ice is tracking above seasonal normals in both the Arctic and Antarctic at the same time- ought to have the AGW industry worried. That is because much of the 3 to 4C of Global Warming predicted with a doubling of CO2 is based on positive feedback effects of melting snow and ice-cover that causes more of the Sun’s heat to be absorbed by darker ocean and land- surfaces free of ice-cover.

    A doubling of CO2 from 350 ppm to 700 ppm has an initial forcing of just under 3 Watts per square metre for the Earth- Atmosphere system as a whole averaged throughout the year. Since surface and atmospheric long-wave heat-loss increases at the fourth power of absolute temperature the atmosphere and surface would only need to warm 1C to bring temperatures back into equilibrium. The sensitivity of the Models which the IPCC used suggest that a warming of over three times this- based on feedbacks amplifying the CO2 forcing (melting snow and ice is key to this unfolding) and it completely ignores other “initial thermal forcings” like a weaker, quieter Sun and volcanic eruptions putting dust in the stratosphere which- together- could cancel out the forcing of even a doubled CO2 level.

    Now, if sea-ice increases to above normal around Antarctica- so that more (not less) heat from the Sun is reflected into space as we go into the Southern Hemisphere Spring/ Summer and snow/ ice-cover persists through the Northern summer in the Arctic- snow and ice cover is going to more than negate any effect of rising CO2 levels and exacerbate influences- such as a quieter cooler Sun over the last thirty years: Even if the Sun radiates just 0.2% less heat it will completely offset the initial forcing of the 100 ppm CO2-increase since 1990, more solar energy reflected back into space on top will have a cooling effect. The IPCC models will be well-out!

    Increased ice-cover in the Arctic before the start of the autumn combined with a La Nina in the equatorial Pacific suggest the North Atlantic Westerlies will again be weaker than normal in Autumn/ Winter 2021-2022, particularly if expanded ice-cover pushes them further south (away from the axis of Earth’s rotation) so that they do not “need” to blow as strong to counterract tropical and polar easterlies. The COP 26 event in Glasgow could- ironically- be happening in snow or freezing fog!

    There is satellite data from earlier than 1979, but they “deleted” it because it paints a bit of a different picture. For example, heres a video (by Tony Heller) with the earlier satellite data for the arctic:

    We live in a post-factual world now where media and other elites control the narrative. Whatever happens in the real world, western middle class people shall be punished and, in time, totally diminished as a political and demographic force.
