Antarctic Sea Ice Sets Another Record


www.forbes.com

Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year). Please, nobody tell the mainstream media or they might have to retract some stories and admit they are misrepresenting scientific data.

National Public Radio (NPR) published an article on its website last month claiming, “Ten years ago, a piece of ice the size of Rhode Island disintegrated and melted in the waters off Antarctica. Two other massive ice shelves along the Antarctic Peninsula had suffered similar fates a few years bef

when searching this article on ats i was surprised that the only one similar was from about a month ago. it was regarding an article about the arctic ice at record lows.
www.abovetopsecret.com...
is this recent article going against the grain concerning climate change and/or global warming?
is it possible that climate change will effect the different hemispheres differently, if not basically in opposites?

Earth has cycles, right now we are in an intermediate time between two ice ages. This time has slight trends of cooling and then warming. These tend to last around 10 000 years before a new ice age begins. Scientists have debated how close we are from this upcoming ice age, some saying anywhere from 100 years to 1000years. Scientists have also played around with the amount of methane release and carbon release we have aided in releasing; as to the effect it will have on the next ice age. Could this current warming trend be the last one before the plummet to an ice age?

One thing is for sure, I wont be around for it, you wont be around for it, possibly even our grandchildren wont be around for it or their grand kids and then theirs. We should concern ourselves with climate change, but to put a total necessity to it seems rather narrow minded. We have vague ideas how these cycles work, but as for the timing, we will probably never know until we see the weather turning one way or the other.

Earth is a funny little place. If it's building in one place, it MUST be shrinking in another. We're the ultimate 0 sum system and unless a monster comet is scheduled soon, we aren't getting more to add to the system we have.....So, I'm guessing this is nature's way of handling that fast melt we all saw recently. Nature does have it's ways of keeping things balanced...with or without our help. Amazing huh?

I read the article and wondered if indeed what we are seeing is increased tectonic plate activity that is setting off more volcanic activity in the Ring of Fire and that is setting off underground volcanic activity in the Arctic? Could all the increased volcanic activity be affecting some underground fault lines or volcanoes in the Arctic and that results in Arctic ice melt? Is the ice melting from underneath? That what we have is this melting up on the Arctic and increased ice in the Antarctic....it is an idea to discuss and think about.

The MSM will never cover this.

Google ""Antarctic Sea Ice", and you will be overwhelemd with fables of arctic melting. Not a word about a scientific, peer-reviewded article that show the IPCC "models" are skewed and do not work!


A recent paper in the Journal of Climate finds that most climate models erroneously predict that Antarctic sea ice extent decreased over the past 30 years, which “differs markedly from that observed.”

Antarctic Sea Ice Reaches Record High: IPCC Models Predicted The Opposite

This will not make headlines, drive policy, or re-direct money from one country to another. Thus, it will not receive any MSM coverage; or, if it does, it will be to minimize or re-direct attention. Thus, the Google search results that ignore the article, but re-direct into more "mainstream" stories.

Deny ignorance.

so the arctic sea is at an all time low and the antarctic is at an all time high......... that doesn't seem like a problem to you? falls right in line with extreme weather patterns of climate change.

will it be on the MSM?? nope. neither will the record lows in the arctic. climate change doesn't get talked about in the MSM anymore.

The large blocks of antarctic sea ice that broke off a few years ago had nothing to do with global warming .

They were caused by the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami..

The media believed everything the global warmers fed them and never did any research by asking non global warming scientist to see if they were being fed BS and keep in the dark.

Its the old problem of the global warmers blaming everything on there pet problem without any real proof.
the global warmers only trick when called out on there BS is to claim the oil companies are paying for challenging research

I read this a while back from the BBC and here is another scientific observation:

Arctic ice shrinks to all-time low; half 1980 size





By SETH BORENSTEIN, AP 9 hours ago





WASHINGTON — In a critical climate indicator showing an ever warming world, the amount of ice in the Arctic Ocean shrank to an all-time low this year, obliterating old records.

The ice cap at the North Pole measured 1.32 million square miles on Sunday. That's 18 percent smaller than the previous record of 1.61 million square miles set in 2007, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center in Boulder, Colo. Records go back to 1979 based on satellite tracking.

"On top of that, we're smashing a record that smashed a record," said data center scientist Walt Meier. Sea ice shrank in 2007 to levels 22 percent below the previous record of 2005.

Ice in the Arctic melts in summer and grows in winter, and it started growing again on Monday. In the 1980s, Meier said, summer sea ice would cover an area slightly smaller than the Lower 48 states. Now it is about half that.

having only been able to make these measurements accurately since the dawn of satellites, where do you get your information to state that its a problem?

Of course fail to mention there is a land mass that influences patterns that is not existent at the North Pole. Loss of Sea Ice is immeasurably more important at the North Pole then the South Pole due to conveyor currents.

Antarctic ice is much more important than that of the Arctic. The area of its sea ice is a million square kilometres larger than the highest value ever recorded in the Arctic. Then, of course, the Antarctic is an entire continent, with more than 90% of the earth’s glacial ice.

Antarctic sea ice is seasonal. Arctic sea ice isn't. Yet.

And whilst nearly the highest winter sea ice extent around Antarctica may be a consequent of icnreased melting, caused by gloval warming, it's simply not as spectacular as the converse in the Arctic.





Which stands out the most?

Tamino has a good piece on the subject on his blog

Except, your charts show that they are BOTH seasonal!

Try again.

Antarctic sea ice forms and melts every year

Arctic sea ice is year round


btw, another (near) Antarctic record at Vostok last week

Antarctica posts near-cold record
