Arctic sea ice report – 20 July, 2021

Arctic sea ice report – 20 July, 2021

Here is Margo’s full report from two days ago.

Here is my summary, following on one from a month ago
 
SEA ICE EXTENT

The experts refer exclusively to sea ice extent an so doing provide a false picture of the real situation

METHANE

There is a lot more methane being released than a few weeks ago but there is a suspicion that the algos are hiding the real situation (as discussed by Margo)

Margo has been monitoring global methane levels from what are now called Metop A and Metop B satellite. There has been a steady increase in levels so that already in mid-July levels are equivalent to about September last year.

TEMPERATURES AT THE NORTH POLE

The ice has gone from the Northeast of Greenland that has been present in previous years.

There is a lot of cloud right now but I can identify that ice is breaking up quite close to the North Pole
