Arctic sea ice disappearing fast

Arctic sea ice disappearing fast

Arctic News, 6 July, 2021 Above image, from the National Institute of Polar Research in Japan, shows Arctic sea ice extent at a record low for the time of year, on July 4, 2021, at 8.4 million km². Subsequently, the NSIDC also indicated that Arctic sea ice was at record low extent for the time of year, on July 5, 2021, at 8.867 million km² (image above).  Arctic sea ice is getting very thin rapidly, threatening the latent heat tipping point to get crossed…

There is virtually no latent heat buffer left to consume further heat flowing from the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean into the Arctic Ocean. 

There is virtually no latent heat buffer left to consume further heat flowing from the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean into the Arctic Ocean. 

Latent heat Rapid thinning of the sea ice in the Beaufort Sea indicates that there is virtually no latent heat buffer left to consume further heat flowing from the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean into the Arctic Ocean.  [ feedback #14: Latent Heat ] Above image shows a number of feedbacks that are accelerating warming in the Arctic. Feedback #14 refers to the heat that is (less and less) going into melting the sea ice. The reason this heat is called…

Arctic sea ice is deteriorating quickly

Arctic sea ice is deteriorating quickly

I shall repeat this same format throughout the melt season. Here is Margo’s report. SEA ICE EXTENT This is what the NSIDC is showing and places like Neven’s sea ice blog emphasise. By concentrating on sea ice extent and ignoring the state of the ice as is now being revealed by Polarstern (and what I have been talking about with Margo for 3 years) they are in denial and guilty of seriously misrepresenting the situation. Even a mainstream outlet of…

The media hints at the possibility of a Blue Sea Event in the Arctic

The media hints at the possibility of a Blue Sea Event in the Arctic

“Could..may…might” Mainstream media hints at what a small handful have been warning about and even fewer have been providing evidence for – a Blue Sea Event, all delivered with the usual mantras about “reducing emissions” Mostly the reaction to the evidence has been denial, including from scientists. The truth is this is all baked into the cake and has for quite a while. Wait for the demands to blot out the sun. Here is my report. Somehow they think there…

Reassessing previous assumptions with new information

Reassessing previous assumptions with new information

The other day when doing my morning perusal of the news I came across this item carried by the climate change sceptic publication, Zero Hedge.  Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters I get all sorts of stuff that tries to tell me that climate change is a hoax and I dismiss them out of hand because their “evidence” such as it is, does not explain the observed reality. This was a little different…

Russia is to lose its permafrost, minister of natural resources warns

Russia is to lose its permafrost, minister of natural resources warns

Northern territories ‘will become arable farmland in 20-to-30 years’, and will have to adapt – fast. Thawing Arctic. Picture: Alexander Oboimov Siberian Times, 13 May, 2021   The phenomenon of permafrost – a several-metre-deep and hard frozen mix of soil, sand and ice, lying under cities, towns and vast unpopulated areas of Russian Arctic regions – is vanishing, Alexander Kozlov, Russian Minister of Natural Resources said. ‘Every such region understands what’s coming to it in 20, 30 years. It’ll stop…
