“ONE clear thing we can say about 2012-2013 Arctic Sea Ice Extent is that it shows the most extreme variation of all in the last 11 years. This and other extreme events and changes are predicted aspects of the developing Mini Ice Age now upon us - associated with our WeatherAction Solar-Lunar predicted wild jet-stream shifts and specific events; none of which can be comprehended or predicted by the delusional CO2 ‘theory’.

Warming ? - What Warming ?
Last year I produced an article entitled “ Visual Proof Of Global Cooling since 2007” which can be found along with my other work here at ClimateRealists.com
It is now time for a short update so readers are now invited to compare the latest chart with the charts for the same date and time in 2007 and in 2012.
It can readily be seen that the cooling process over and around the North Pole has intensified over the past 12 months.
In view of reports from the southern hemisphere I suspect that the South Pole is behaving in a similar manner. First the original chart from 2007

Arctic ice area is at a ten year high for the date, and has blown away the previous record for ice growth by more than half a million km^2.

Last year’s record low of Arctic sea ice extent has been discussed widely. Some regard it as the latest example of decadally declining Arctic sea ice exceeding the record low of 2007 and still heading downward.
Arctic sea ice is usually at its greatest extent in March so it is only now that we can see the 2012 freeze-melt cycle completely. Looking at Fig 1 the profile of 2012’s cycle is unusual. The downward trend in August was suddenly doubled making it very different from the melting seen in previous years.
This significant change of slope is the result of what is now being called the “Great Arctic Cyclone of 2012.” A vast area of low pressure arose in Siberia on August 2nd. It crossed the Arctic Ocean and went onto Canada. By August 6th the storm’s pressure was 966 mb, the lowest ever recorded for an Arctic storm. (It is difficult to get data from Arctic storms. Surface pressure is measured only on a few Arctic islands, on a few land based stations around the Arctic Ocean and on buoys.)

It’s known as the Great Arctic Cyclone, and when it roared out of Siberia last August, storm watchers knew it was unusual. Hurricane-like storms are very common in the Arctic, but the most powerful of them (which are still far less powerful than tropical hurricanes) tend to come in winter.
It wasn’t clear at the time, however, whether the August storm was truly unprecedented.
Now it is.
A study published in Geophysical Research Letters looks at no fewer than 19,625 Arctic storms and concludes that in terms of size, duration and several other of what the authors call “key cyclone properties,” the Great Cyclone was the most extreme summer storm, and the 13th most powerful storm -- summer or winter -- since modern satellite observations began in 1979.

Looking at the temperature chart of the Danish Meteorological Institute, we see that the Arctic above 80°N has turned quite frosty.
The polar bears are probably the only ones enjoying it.
Checking the charts from the years before, we see that today’s Arctic temperature is a hair lower than the low of 2010 (it’s very close), and is thus the lowest since 2004. At Twitter a couple a days ago I think it was Ryan Maue who said that the Arctic was in for a cold snap, and so it’s possible temperatures above 80°N may even drop further before this ends.
Will be interesting to watch in the days ahead. I wonder if they’ll blame it on warming.

A new report says that Glaciers are melting, but not as fast as some say. In fact, Antartica is gaining almost as much ice as it loses.
A new “comprehensive” report about the melting of Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets is being touted by climate alarmists as “grim news” but in fact says no such thing. This latest estimate, published this week in Science, combines data from many sources including 20 years of satellite data and 32 years of ice-sheet simulations to arrive at a mixed conclusion. It estimates that, between 1992 and 2011, the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets lost 1350 ± 1010 and 2700 ± 930 Gt of ice, respectively. That is equivalent to an increase in global mean sea level of 11.2 ± 3.8 mm, less than 1/2 an inch. Moreover, while some areas were loosing ice mass others were gaining mass from snowfall. The East Antarctic Ice Sheet (EAIS), which occupies over 75% of Antarctica, experienced mass gains during the final years of the study.

On the 22nd September I put forward a prediction that this years Arctic sea ice extent would return to anormal level by December. It was never meant to be a prediction that would set the world on fire:) but as you will see from the above image taken today at ijis.iarc.uaf.edu/seaice the Arctic sea ice extent HAS returned to NORMAL! However this result has given more questions then answers, and that is......how can the 2006 Arctic sea ice extent, that had peaked in September 2006 as one of the most covered ice areas end up with having one of the worst results for the recent November and December periods.
What was it about the level of CO2 in November/December of 2006? Why did the media not pick up on this in the same way they did for September 2012? Sadly we will never know the answer to these questions.
I could be wrong on this but I think the clue is in the temperature of the Ocean currents and from what NASA has gone onto say it's also to do with Arctic storm force winds, this then, points to CO2 as having NOTHING to do with Arctic sea ice melt!
Meanwhile....although this years Arctic sea ice extent HAS returned to normal, as predicted, will the MSM make a point of mentioning this happy event...sadly I think not! The Arctic sea ice extent returning back to normal is not a news worthy event, it would mean that the Main Stream Media would have to say CO2 does not melt ice afterall
