The Unrelenting Death Spiral Of The Arctic Sea Ice Demonstrated Over The Last 10+ Years!!!!!!!

The world is clearly doomed by this!

Yeh, it’s one of those horrid death spirals you can’t actually see/quantify/measure. 

Note:  The graph is intentionally biased to have a downward trend because of the start date. …..  Well, here’s how it would look if I started it on the day after the most recent measurements, 2005.

Source for the graphs is here.

I think we’re done here, people. 

The true trend of the ice extent (from 2005 to present) would be almost exactly the trends averaged.  That is to say, the start dates are almost exactly the difference between the peaks and the troughs of the graph.  ….. ~ a weeks difference, perhaps.  We don’t have a definitive date for either the peak or trough … But, these graphs make it inescapable and inarguable that the arctic isn’t melting away. 

Did it somewhat decline from the extent it had in the 80s?  Perhaps, probably.  I’m not 100% convinced we know how to properly adjust for the different technologies utilized.  But, regardless, it doesn’t change the graphs above. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m no prognosticator.  I’ve no idea what will happen in future in regards to our Arctic sea ice.  I’m only showing what happened over the last decade.  Our ice has somewhat and slightly increased, based on a daily average over the years.  Again, this is inarguable, and inescapable.

    Had a run in with a true believer yesterday, and he kept parotting this same insane talking oint over and over…

    “Explain the statistically improbable temperature stability revealed by oxygen isotope rations during the past 10,000 years (in a 800k year record set).”

    I explained that he was crazy, and that there has been no “stability” over the last 10,000 years by pointing out the recent LIA and MWP. These people are nuts, and believe anything the grantologists feed them.

      Also, warmer than the MWP, the Roman Warm period, and warmer still, the Minoan warm period, and warmer still, the Holocene optimum 8000 years ago…. Nice periodic wobbles… with a tendency of declining maxima.

      Plus, he’s confused as to comparing two very different resolutions. They do that mistake over and over again.

      Lol, correct, each time I try to explain to a true believer that there was an MWP a roman warming, minoan warming they get so confused. In their mind everything was perfect stable until the industrial revolution which was the source of all evil.
      The most sophisticated of them base their faith in such works that shows no variances for the last 100 years. There have been a couple such garbage papers.
      They don’t want to believe that the vikings had farms in Greenland where now is permafrost:

      and if confronted with evidence they mean “that were only local variations”
      It is the same conversation I had at the time with other religious guys who tried to convince me of their truth, so I stopped trying to convince them, it is just waste of time.
      What is really sad is to see the perversion of science which is used as a tool, the serial adjustments made to fit the theory. This is a road to nowhere.
