Ice breakers escorting scientists called back to clear RECORD ICE.

"Worst ice seen in twenty years". One would think the brainwashed and delusional would admit defeat, but no, they must continue on with the charade to their bitter end.

2. Probably the weakest sauce posted in a while.

 

And posted with no commentary, so I am guessing you are one of the dozen or so people left on earth who deny man made global warming? Oh by the the way, don't be an idiot and confuse ANTARTICA with the artic. Where the sea ice continues its steady retreat. NASA has a really nifty video, they even shot it from SPACE and everything. I have a feeling watching it would make you feel somewhat uncomfortable.

I made it easy for you. http://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/Gallery/ArcticSeaIceResources.html

6. Well here is what is going on in the ARCTIC this week.

CCGS Amundsen re-routed to Hudson Bay to help with heavy ice
Worst ice conditions in 20 years force change of plans to icebreaker research program
A carefully planned, 115-day scientific expedition on board the floating research vessel, the CCGS Amundsen, has been derailed as the icebreaker was called to help resupply ships navigate heavy ice in Hudson Bay.

Johnny Leclair, assistant commissioner for the Coast Guard, said Tuesday conditions in the area are the worst he's seen in 20 years. With only two icebreakers available in the Arctic — the CCGS Pierre Radisson has been escorting resupply ships through ice-choked Frobisher Bay — he said the only option was to re-deploy the Amundsen

Leclair did say there should be two more icebreakers headed to the Arctic in the next week, which should free up the Amundsen to return to its scientific mission.

I'm sure you'll provide some link to some doomer site saying the Arctic has melted, poor poor polar bears are suffering, capitalism is bad, global warming is killing us all, and I'm a racist for disagreeing with the 97 scientists who make their living from the global warming hoax.

8. Good morning jack,

 

Hope you are well. One season does not a pattern make. And no I'm not a doomer. I will say it again though. I believe in the "conservation of matter" global warming is a logical consequence of the use of fossil fuels. I,don't see a,scientific way around it. Truthfully though, I don't need any data other than going out doors and seeing how the flora and fauna has changed in my lifetime, seeing how my mowing season has increase over my lifetime. Oh and seeing lizards that aren't native here, that was eye opening. Listening to the ever changing weather terms to describe the unfamiliar weather patterns we now have.

Did you peruse the nasa site I linked to? Those pictures don't lie.

3. Man, the WP nailed you to a T

Climate change skeptics may be about to lose one of their favorite arguments

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2015/07/27/climate-change-skeptics-may-be-about-to-lose-one-of-their-favorite-arguments/?tid=pm_pop_b

Whenever you point to melting ice in polar regions, climate change doubters or skeptics have an answer. Ice floating atop the seas around Antarctica, they point out, is growing — and that’s not what you would expect from global warming, right?

In late 2013 and early 2014, an iconic moment capturing this phenomenon occurred when a research vessel, MV Akademik Shokalskiy, actually found itself trapped in Antarctic ice, and its 52 passengers — including some scientists — had to be rescued by helicopter. Climate skeptics had a field day. “It will take far more than helicopters … to salvage the theory of so-called ‘global warming,’” wrote Deroy Murdock. “It remains trapped in Antarctic ice.”

There’s no doubt that growing Antarctic sea ice is a mystery in the climate system — and an anomalous, seemingly contrary indicator. However, if a controversial and much-discussed new paper from famed former NASA scientist James Hansen and 16 colleagues is correct, then actually it could be a troubling climate warning sign. (Indeed, other scientists have reached similar conclusions.)

According to Hansen’s thinking, expanding Antarctic sea ice is precisely what you would expect to see if the Antarctic continent itself is losing a lot of ice mass from its vast ice sheet, adding to sea level rise.

7. The Republican brain is unable to process any information that disputes its misguided and inaccurate

beliefs. When confronted with such information it immediately shuts down, seals itself off and becomes a closed loop, a repetitive noise machine whereupon lies are treated as facts and facts are dismissed as the rantings of an evil overlord.

9. The Daily Mail and Telegraph get it wrong on Arctic sea ice, again

The flat earthers are sad and silly creatures http://www.theguardian.com/environment/climate-consensus-97-per-cent/2015/jul/27/daily-mail-telegraph-wrong-arctic-sea-ice

Cherry-picking is one of the five telltale techniques of climate change denial. By focusing on short-term blips in noisy data, those who want to maintain the status quo can distract from the long-term threats posed by climate change. Climate contrarians most frequently deploy this strategy using global temperature and Arctic sea ice data.

A recent study in Nature Geoscience concluded that, not surprisingly, there is a strong relationship between the summer temperatures in the Arctic (specifically the number of “melting degree days”), and the amount of sea ice that melts in a given year. 2013 happened to be a relatively cool year in the Arctic – the coolest since 2004. As a result, there was relatively little ice melt in 2013. The annual minimum Arctic sea ice extent and volume were their largest since at least 2009, or perhaps as far back as 2005, according to the data used in this new study.

The following figure from the paper is as clear as ice – while there was a short-term increase from 2012 to 2013, the Arctic has lost more than half its sea ice over the past three decades.
