Amount of ice in Bering Sea reaches all-time record - Were We Lied to?

The amount of floating ice in the Arctic's Bering Sea - which had long been expected to retreat disastrously by climate-Cassandra organisations such as Greenpeace - reached all-time record high levels last month, according to US researchers monitoring the area using satellites.

The US National Snow and Ice Data Center announced last week that ice extent in the Bering for the month of March has now been collated and compared, and is the highest seen since records began. The NSIDC boffins said in a statement:

Were We Lied to?

Or are we lied to?
I just ask that question because, normally people in here don't trust scientist, they think everything they say is a lie, because the goverment tell them to lie

Anyway.This tell why so much ice is piling up, i don't have much knowledge about this, i just Google it.

The accumulation of ice this season has largely been fueled by persistent northerly winds blowing from the Arctic Ocean across the Bering Strait. The local winter weather has been dominated by low-pressure systems—with their counterclockwise circulation—that have brought extensive moisture up from the south to coastal and interior Alaska, while sending cold winds down across the sea to the west.
Those winds pushed Arctic sea ice toward the narrow, shallow strait, where it piled up and formed an ice arch that blocked the flow. As arches fail because of wind stress, large floes of sea ice can move south into the Bering Sea. Ice also has piled up on the north side of St. Lawrence Island, near the mouth of the strait.

Also, kind of important to this question.

The Bering Sea stands in stark contrast to the rest of the Arctic ice cap, where sea ice extent was below average in both January and February. Ice cover was down drastically on the Atlantic Ocean side of the Arctic, including the Kara, Barents, and Laptev Seas, where air temperatures were 4 to 8 degrees Celsius (7 to 14 degrees Fahrenheit) above the norm.

Low-level regions of high wind speed known as tip jets have been identified near Cape Farewell, Greenland's southernmost point. These wind systems contribute to this area being the windiest location on the ocean's surface and play an important role in the regional weather and climate
. Here we present the first analysis of the wind systems that make the Siberian coast of the northern Bering Sea the windiest location in the North Pacific Ocean during the boreal winter.
In particular we show that tips jets characterized by enhanced northeasterly winds occur in the vicinity of the two prominent headlands along the coast, Cape Navarin and Cape Olyutorsky. The advance of sea ice in the region is shown to impact the frequency and location of the high speed winds in the vicinity of these two capes.

By lewis page...Stopped reading right there. Here read this, it is far more informative and put things into context.

When you catch them out they want to be able to scream plausible deny-ability.

Ice forms in three dimensions not two.

What they are not telling you is what is the VOLUME of ice that has been lost.

Do some research, try Arctic ice volumetric loss.

Yes, you are being lied to.

The whole climate change is full of half truths and evasions.

every time there is extra snow or ice somewhere it turns into "the scientists are lying".... even though they have continuously said that parts of the earth will ice over while over all temps slowly rise. "global warming" does not and has never meant that all the earths surface will be hot. some places will experience extreme cold and that means more ice. EXTREMES in both directions are what we will continue to experience just like the scientists have been saying. why is that so complicated?

why do the "global warming is a hoax" people continue to believe the giant corporations? you know, the ones most people think usually lie to us for profits?? this is the only thing a large group of people think the corps are being honest about. sure. believe the ones who have THE MOST money involved.

The acolytes of the Church Of Gore always have an answer, or a name change, or a delete button or a smear tactic., all of which (from what I've seen) involves excuses for why the NEW model is "more accurate" than the old model.

It kind of reminds me of the washing powder ads - "New and Improved!!! Best Ever!!!"

Then they actually do the same and re-brand the goods - "New, Better, Scarier, CLIMATE CHANGE (replaces global warming, this is not an admission of any liability)"

In the meantime, less than 5% of "green" taxes are used to make our world a better place.

The "green" industry is worth tens of billions, and I would have no issue with that if the money was being spent properly.

Put it another way - stop chopping down the rainforests, and polluting the oceans/soil/land/water table.

Whatever they are calling it this month is a red herring - there are lots of ways to stop our planet being made into a desert if only we would slow down our runaway consumerism.
