Artic sea ice continues to grow and outstrip previous years in extent as the graphic from the Sea Ice Index reveals below;
So whilst we have had climate alarmist claims that the arctic will be ice free within years and that we are past the tipping point – it continues to grow and NOT shrink. In the last few years the arctic was increasing by about 500,000km2 per year but this positive divergence is heading up towards 1,000,000 km2 mark and is now within the standard deviation for the 1979-2000 average.
Ahh what will they think of for their next fraudulent scare campaign?
Update 1/4/2010 – sea ice continues to rise instead of fall!
