Multi-year ice is being rapidly lost off the coast of northern Greenland. Temperatures there are close to -30C.
Loss of ice in the arctic, just as predicted by climate models in a warming world. CO2 is now so powerful it can melt ice at -30 degrees C. Thank goodness we have Hansen, Schmidt, Trenberth, Mann, et al to save us.
Kap Morris Jesup ?
Arctic sea ice is looking really sick
and total global ice is really low too
This will the first year ever in the satellite record that it doesn’t get above zero is my bet.
Good to see the village idiot back.
I’m not the only, er, idiot in the village
Can I meet anyone like me? Just keep bumping into polar bears.
Those fjords will soon be ideal for water-skiing and scuba-diving:
If you look at the map of the world you or I grew up with, it had the Arctic at the top, the Antarctic at the bottom, and both as depicted as barriers, edges. But of course as the Arctic opens up I think that that conception of the Arctic being a barrier through which you cannot pass is going to have to change. You’re going to have to start looking at polar-centred maps of the world, with the Arctic Ocean as what it may eventually become – more of a Mediterranean than a frozen border.
