Trend Change? Greenland Ice Mass Loss Has Been Decelerating Since 2012

Share this…FacebookTwitterGreenland’s Ice Mass Balance 2021/22 By Die kalte Sonne Autumn has begun. Time for the Greenland mass balance. We have digitized the Polar Portal’s graph of the accumulated surface mass balance and have come up with a value of 467 Gt. That’s 100 Gt or 27% above the 1981…2010 mean! Together with the melting […]

Polar Opposite: Polar Bears Require Thin Ice Or Open Water To Survive

Polar Opposite: Polar Bears Require Thin Ice Or Open Water To Survive

Share this…FacebookTwitterAbundant polar bear remains dating to 8000 to 9000 years ago have been found on Zhokhov Island, which is today surrounded by year-round sea ice (even in summer). This Arctic latitude (76°N) is too cold and thus too ice-covered for polar bears to inhabit today. During the Early Holocene CO2 concentrations ranged between 255 […]

Canadian Arctic Archipelago Blocked By Thick Multi-Year Ice…August Arctic Sea Ice Rebounds

Share this…FacebookTwitterIn terms of Arctic sea ice and hurricane activity this year, the climate ambulance chasers have been quiet. Late summer Arctic ice has stopped shrinking The DMI graph shows the size of sea ice areas in the Arctic in August from the beginning of satellite measurements in 1979 to 2022 (red line). The sea […]

Arctic-Wide Glaciers And Ice Caps Were Absent Or Smaller Than Today From 10,000 To 3000 Years Ago

Arctic-Wide Glaciers And Ice Caps Were Absent Or Smaller Than Today From 10,000 To 3000 Years Ago

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study details how a much warmer climate than today led to the disappearance of glaciers and ice caps during the sub-300 ppm CO2 Early to Middle Holocene. The Arctic’s modern ice extent is among the largest of the last 10,000 years. Glaciologists Larocca and Axford (2022) have synthesized a comprehensive record of […]

Doomsday Climate Predictions Meltdown: Arctic Sea Ice Extent Reaches 12-Year Mid-August High

Doomsday Climate Predictions Meltdown: Arctic Sea Ice Extent Reaches 12-Year Mid-August High

Share this…FacebookTwitterAccording to Al Gore, based on statements and “science” from “leading climate experts”, the Arctic was supposed to be ice-free in the summer already years ago. Now that the summer ice melt season in the Arctic will end soon, by the middle of next month, it’s a good time to see how Al Gore’s […]

Climatologists Embarrassed: Increase In Global CO2 Levels Accompanied By Arctic Sea Ice Growth!

Climatologists Embarrassed: Increase In Global CO2 Levels Accompanied By Arctic Sea Ice Growth!

Share this…FacebookTwitterToday we look at the polar ice caps, which the global warming wingnuts claim is the canary in the coal mine and predicted earlier they’d melt and collapse. For example, Al Gore warned the Arctic ice would disappear by 2014. While CO2 has gone up, Arctic sea ice has RISEN over past decade But […]

Global Warming Has Stalled Over Much Of The Last 10 Years, Arctic Never Melted Away

Global Warming Has Stalled Over Much Of The Last 10 Years, Arctic Never Melted Away

Share this…FacebookTwitterThe globe hasn’t been warming and the Arctic hasn’t been melting much for almost a decade now. Recall the climate crisis loonies warned us some 20 years ago the Arctic sea ice would disappear by the summer of 2014. Well it’s still very much there, as Joe Bastardi reminds us at his most recent […]

Since 2000 The Arctic's Hudson Bay Has Cooled -0.35°C With 10 Of 15 Sites Gaining Sea Ice

Since 2000 The Arctic’s Hudson Bay Has Cooled -0.35°C With 10 Of 15 Sites Gaining Sea Ice

Share this…FacebookTwitterA new study (Gupta et al., 2022) indicates that from 2000-2019 73% of the 15 sites considered have been cooling and 67% have experienced a lengthening of sea ice duration. Canada’s Hudson Bay extends into the Arctic Ocean and its coasts are teeming with polar bears. Scientists report 11 of 15 Hudson Bay sites […]

New Study: Greenland 'Must Have Been At Least 3°C Warmer' Than Today During The Early Holocene

New Study: Greenland ‘Must Have Been At Least 3°C Warmer’ Than Today During The Early Holocene

Share this…FacebookTwitterThese much warmer Greenland temperatures imply that the elevation of the ice sheet was 400 meters lower than it is today from about 6,000 to 10,000 years ago. Scientists (Westhoff et al., 2022) report that the two largest Greenland melt events in the last few hundred years occurred in 2012 and in 1889 CE […]

Recent Greenland Cooling And Only 'Limited Retreat' Of Glaciers Since The Little Ice Age

Recent Greenland Cooling And Only ‘Limited Retreat’ Of Glaciers Since The Little Ice Age

Share this…FacebookTwitterMore evidence surfaces showing Greenland isn’t cooperating with the global warming narrative. The notorious “Climategate” e-mail exchanges between activist scientists like Drs. Phil Jones and Tom Wigley revealed how grave a concern it was in 2004 that “GREENLAND HAS BEEN COOLING SIGNIFICANTLY” since the 1950s. “…a warming trend occurred in the Nuuk fjord during […]

Greenland’s Summers Surprisingly Cooling Over Past Decade…Driven By Natural Oceanic Cycles

Share this…FacebookTwitterScience Daily here reports: “Climate changes in the tropical Pacific have temporarily put the brakes on rapid warming and ice melting in Greenland.“ Hat-tip: Klimaschau Science Daily adds: “A puzzling, decade-long slowdown in summer warming across Greenland has been explained by researchers at Hokkaido University in Japan. Their observational analysis and computer simulations revealed […]

New Study: 'The Reasons For The Warming In The Arctic Are Still Controversial'

New Study: ‘The Reasons For The Warming In The Arctic Are Still Controversial’

Share this…FacebookTwitterOf all the possible reasons for a warming Arctic since 2002, it has been determined that “the clear-sky downward long-wave radiation caused by water vapor” is the dominant cause. A new study says that when it comes to downwelling long-wave, water vapor, clouds, and temperature are the main factors determining its intensity. “As is […]
