Antarctic sea ice reaches record high while IPCC models predicted the opposite

“Several of the models have less than two thirds of the observed SIE (sea-ice extent).”

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”.

As noted in the abstract, Antarctic sea ice has confounded the models by instead increasing over the satellite era. In fact, it is currently at a record extent that is more than 2 standard deviations above the 1979-2000 average.

The authors lament, “The negative [Antarctic sea ice] trends in most of the model runs over 1979 – 2005 are a continuation of an earlier decline, suggesting that “the processes responsible for the observed increase over the last 30 years are not being simulated correctly.”

“Several of the models have less than two thirds of the observed SIE (sea-ice extent).”

It would be rather easy to prove “global warming” if you use models that are off by more than 66 percent.

  1. C02 is not a climatedriver and because of that, all IPCC predictions will ALWAYS fail. I guess they’ll never learn, it’s sad.

  2. The news about the Antarctic sea ice are a very important aspect of the general trend of the climate.
    The coherence with the variation of solar radiation since 2008 is remarkable.
    We don’t need their “models” to see the facts and understand the meaning of what is happening.

  3. Its almost to the point where one can look at the predictions made by so called ‘Climate Scientists’ and infer that the exact opposite will happen.
