Now, other data sets do not show this. It’s one of those ‘some do, some don’t’ things. Which ones are right, and which ones are not? Well, who’s to say? Certainly no one has ever accused Atmos as being biased for skeptics. Jaxa has, but, it’s still showing a very slight decline in the ice, albeit, at a much larger extent than Atmos. But, that’s the way of the climate lunatics.
No one can agree on what is real and not real when it comes to measuring crap we can’t properly measure. The graph above is in millions square kilometers. But, then, so is Jaxa’s, only 1.3 million sq/km more. But, that’s the point. We’re talking millions of square km, but, Atmos says we’re now increasing by 8/100 of million sq/km, while Jaxa says we’re still decreasing by 11/1000 over the past few days.
Regardless, the ice is done shrinking for this year, and it will expand very soon. No records have, nor will be broke this season. But, there will be an overall increasing trend over the last 7 years or so.
