Scientists claim that Arctic sea ice is experiencing a record decline.
Data from NSIDC shows that the Arctic is actually experiencing a record low decline in sea ice, since the peak on March 3.
They also show that Arctic sea ice extent is normal, far above last year, and about the same as 2006 – the year with the highest minimum extent of the past decade.
The article claims : “Arctic sea ice has been seriously declining since around 2005 is a well-known fact“
In March 2017, when Arctic sea ice is typically at its maximum winter extent, circling US satellites recorded an extent of just 5.57 million square miles – the lowest maximum in the record’s 38-year history, breaking the previous record set two years earlier and falling nearly half a million square miles below the 1981-2010 long-term average.
That Arctic sea ice has been seriously declining since around 2005 is a well-known fact, thanks to a series of US Department of Defense satellites that have continuously recorded the region with passive microwave instrumentation since 1979. These satellites have provided scientists, citizens and government with a thorough record of the changing Arctic – informing climate research and policymaking, mid-latitude weather predictions and geopolitical analyses useful to international shipping and natural gas exploration companies as the Arctic melts and opens up for exploitation.
In fact, there has been no change in Arctic sea ice extent over the past decade.
Over the past decade, I have learned that essentially everything climate alarmists say is the exact opposite of what underlying data shows.
