Arctic Fraud!

"What is making the Arctic ice melt faster than expected" is the question asked by the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in an article complete with a picture of polar bears on an ice floe.

This is a particularly stupid question as anyone with a double digit IQ would research and know that the Arctic ice is currently staging a spectacular recovery and is at the highest extent in a decade. Obviously this would rule out climate "scientists".

Arctic ice thickness is up 40% in the past 4 years!

  1. I think it is very important not to overstate the climate uncertainty position. We do not want to emulate the "climate change" community which makes very questionable clams from a scientific perspective. I believe it is not correct to say that arctic ice extent has made a significant recovery. It has paused or is in the process of pausing but there are no signs of a major recovery in extent. I have posted a couple of graphs that illustrate the pattern for the past ten years. http://www.theblackswanblog.com/BSB_Library/arctic_ice_extent.png http://www.theblackswanblog.com/BSB_Library/arctic_ice_extent_2006-2015.png

    I cannot comment on thickness which I think is a more difficult metric to get reliable results for.
