Antarctic sea ice record low and still falling
Mar 20th, 2017 at 12:52pm
 
It's at a record low and the area of ice is still decreasing at a time it should have started to increase.

There was a huge drop in 2015.

Just about every month, it seems, we get a report on the dismal state of Arctic sea ice. By contrast, the shiny white stuff surrounding the Antarctic continent has been remarkably stable in a warming world. This year, however, the sea ice at our planet’s south pole is crashing, and scientists don’t know why.

It’s late summer in Antarctica, the time when sea ice always hits its annual minimum. This year, that minimum marks a dramatic new record—the smallest sea ice extent since continuous satellite coverage began in 1979, by a long shot. Sea ice reached an estimated 2.188 million square kilometers on March 1st, according to near real-time data provided by the National Snow and Ice Data Center. The previous record low, of 2.296 million square kilometers, was set on February 28th, 1997. The difference, of 0.12 million square kilometers, encompasses an area larger than the state of Maine.

Yes. We know nothing existed before 1979. Wink

Can you explain how Mawson sailed into Commonwealth Bay where Turney and the Ship of Fools got stuck?

Denizen lee's only tactic is diversion, misdirection, and obfuscation.

Is that what they call observations these days, if they disagree with AGW?

Okay Bobby....there is only one answer.  I 'confess.'  I 'am' Dr Calligari/Unforgiven/Denizen.  Guess you better ban him, Pully Boy.  Okay by you, Bobby?

Cool

Poor Booby, led astray by Andrew Dolt once again:

Have a read: https://www.theguardian.com/environment/planet-oz/2014/mar/11/climate-change-ant...

Yes, the Antarctic sea ice and NZ glaciers did increase until about 2013. This was well known from satellite photos etc.

The greenhouse effect has been demonstrated to be real. Ice is retreating and the world is warming.

AGW is not natural variation. It is a forcing.
