Four of the Arctic’s coldest summers on record in the last 6 years

Global sea ice above normal for 2nd year in a row. 

The North Pole region north of 80°N, monitored by the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) since 1958, has in 2014 seen yet another colder-than-normal summer, placing it in the Top 4 coldest since the DMI started monitoring in 1958.

Also, global sea ice has been slightly above average for almost 2 years now, thus flying in the faces of alarmists who obstinately cling to the belief of a warming planet.

Funny how you don’t read about this in the mainstream media.

  1. I wonder if the Navy’s computer model predictions indicated this would happen-accurate as they are!

  2. Even though that is a short span of 56 years, that’s an amazing statement, given the heatwave that is on going up there. I mean it really is supposed to be warmer than normal, according to most meteorological organizations. I guess “normal” is a lot colder than “average.”

  3. Did you see the news about all the walruses that are on a beach in Alaska because of the lack of sea ice?

  4. It seems to me that we are now well past the time when the computer modelers had said that a lack of warming would have invalidated their models. None of the dire predictions issued in the last 15-20 years have come to pass. Now, alas, even the hope of a melted North Pole seems to be freezing before their very eyes. Shouldn’t the alarmists be rejoicing? 🙂

  5. It’s only in the summer that the Arctic is cold. In the winter, it’s still miles warmer than average, however as it is way below zero you don’t tend to see people focus on it quite as much…….

  6. To get total ice replinshment it needs to get -50 or -60 in order to freeze the water thousands of meters below and make that ice melt resistant in the summer….that’s been the main reason the cap has shrunk…not enough volume is freezing to begin with but I believe that will change once the warm water pocket in the gulf of Alaska cools trapping more of the arctic air in the arctic and not having “polar vortices” lol

  7. I also saw the news clip about hundreds of walruses clustered on land because of global warming in the Arctic. I thought walruses tended to gather in large colonies at certain times of the year but perhaps I’m mistaken?
