More of the Arctic is covered by ice than at any time since 2010. The sea ice cap shrank to 4.15 million square kilometers (1.60 million square miles) in 2019. Marc Morano featured a post about a fascinating Chinese study from Dr. Patrick Michaels at the website of CFACT’s friend and ally the Competitive Enterprise Institute.. By Paul Homewood . The polar vortex is keeping cold air locked up over the North Pole. A newly completed 40-y record of satellite observations is used to quantify changes in Antarctic sea ice coverage since the late 1970s. Every year it expands and thickens during the fall and winter, then grows smaller and thinner during the spring and summer. The West Antarctic ice sheet, the biggest mass of ice in the world, has been growing since the end of the nineteenth century. At a Glance. While there is evidence that the ice cap in East Antarctica is growing, it has been widely claimed that it has been melting back in the West.. Arctic sea ice volume growing, not shrinking! However, a new study from earlier this year finds this is not the case, as Pat Michaels explains: The West Antarctic Ice Sheet is growing, but I bet you didn’t read about it in the news. Of course man-made global warming climate change is fake. So this "the polar ice caps are melting" nonsense we've been hearing from global alarmists for the past too-many years, has been as true as that time I won World's Strongest Man and turned down Kate Upton's sexual advances. The most recent minimum (February 2020) and maximum (September 2019) sea ice extents in the Antarctic were below average, but not record lows. The total amount of ice is still below average. Antarctic sea ice has greater year-to-year variability than the Arctic, and little evidence of long-term change. She's so aggressive you know. So, while the glacier is growing, the ice sheet is still losing tremendous mass and contributing to sea-level rise. June 6, 2019 by Robert Arctic sea-ice volume was higher on June 1st than on the same date in 2011 and far, far higher than on the same date in 2012, 2016 and 2017. Of course it's been a hoax. Updated data from NASA satellite instruments reveal the Earth’s polar ice caps have not receded at all since the satellite instruments began measuring the ice caps in … On March 24, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) reported that the 2019–2020 growth season had an unexceptional finish: 5.81 million square miles (15.05 million square kilometers). It was the 11 th-lowest maximum in the 42-year satellite record. “That’s how the warming of the ocean translates,” Khazendar says. Sea ice spreads over vast areas and has major impacts on the rest of the climate system, reflecting solar radiation and restricting ocean/atmosphere exchanges. The extent of Arctic sea ice at the end of this summer was effectively tied with 2007 and 2016 for second lowest since modern record keeping began in the late 1970s. The Arctic sea ice cap is an expanse of frozen seawater floating on top of the Arctic Ocean and neighboring seas. Contrary to claims that modern day sea ice changes are “unprecedented”, alarming, and well outside the range of natural variability, biomarker proxies used to reconstruct both Arctic and Antarctic sea ice conditions since the Early Holocene increasingly reveal that there is more extensive Arctic and Antarctic sea ice during recent decades than for nearly all of the last 10,000 years. Arctic sea ice extent—the area where ice concentration is at least 15 percent—reached its apparent annual maximum on March 5, 2020.
