So I decided to do an annual average of the SH sea ice. In this case it is from June 30 of one year to June 29 of the next. I went back to the 2000-2001 year.
Good heavens!!! Think of the massive albedo!!! We’re all going to freeze to death!!!!
On a more serious note, and while we’re on the subject.
Question: Why is the SH sea ice more important than the NH?
Answer: Because of the starting latitude points and the angle of incidence.
Think about it for a moment, and then realize how our cli-sci numbnuts are either incredibly deceiving people, or how massively stupid they are.
If there is a significant energy and climatic affect of our ice albedo, and I’m not convince there is a significant affect, then the place to watch is in the south, not the north. The sea ice, combined with the land ice is roughly double the size of the Arctic sea. As the earth tilts on its axis, the direct sunlight is more in the south than in the arctic because of that huge land mass we call the Antarctic.
Look at the two most recent minimums…….
But, for the Antarctic, there’s still another 14.0 million km2 of land which is almost entirely covered with snow and ice.
And before some jackwagon screams “Greenland”, Greenland is covered with about 1.5 million sq km of ice and snow.
