Last week I mentioned how WeatherUnderground was touting the ‘Great Arctic Cyclone of 2016’ as being a repeat of the ice crusher cyclone in the summer of 2012. People that want to see Arctic sea ice reach new lows, so that they can shout things like “See, told you! Climate change!” were banking on it to…
Arctic melting slowed enough in midsummer that scientists don't expect this year's sea ice minimum to set a new record. This year’s melt season in the
The Arctic Ocean is seeing a rapid amount of ice loss this season, but NASA scientists aren’t too alarmed. Read more...
The melting sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is a problem that environmentalists are trying to solve — or, at the very least, slow down. While the 2016 calendar year will not be record breaking, rapid ice loss is an ongoing issue that is the “new normal,” according to experts at the National Aeronautics...
As global temperatures soar, wildfires rage and sea ice levels dwindle to record lows, a luxury cruise company has found a way to make a pretty penny off our rapidly changing climate. The Crystal Serenity set off from Seward, Alaska, Tuesday, on a 32-day voyage through the Northwest Passage. Show More Summary
This year's melt season in the Arctic Ocean and surrounding seas started with a bang, with a record low maximum extent in March and relatively rapid ice loss through May. The melt slowed down in June, however, making it highly unlikely that this year's summertime sea ice minimum extent will set a new record. read more
The terrifyingly ominous phrase “Arctic death spiral” refers to a chart that measures the continual melt laying waste to the ice in the Arctic Circle over the last 30 years. Climate scientists have issued repeated warnings that the Arctic...Show More Summary
"The Arctic sea ice responded very rapidly to past climate changes. During the coldest periods of the past 90,000 years the sea ice edge spread relatively quickly to the Greenland-Scotland Ridge, and probably far into the Atlantic Ocean."...Show More Summary
It’s official, the Earth is getting warmer, and that means sea levels are rising, and Arctic ice is melting, but there are also several strange side effects being felt in America and around the globe. Rising global temperatures are being blamed for zombie anthrax reanimated from a dead reindeer corpse, thawing snowmelt that’s leaving nuclear... Show More Summary
With temperatures rising across the globe, the poles are being hit particularly hard. Melting Arctic sea ice could wreak plenty of havoc through rising sea levels, but other potential hazards are coming to light. If these warming trends...Show More Summary
Sea ice is decreasing in the Arctic but year-to-year variability in sea ice extent is large. Ice extent is influenced by atmospheric circulation, with temperatures dictating ice melt,
The melting away of Arctic ice because of climate change won’t raise sea levels, but what it means for the world is one of the big, complicated questions in science right now.
In the never-ending non-contest between climate change deniers and climate scientists, there is plenty of gloating to go around. Tossing down the gauntlet once again, Peter Sinclair challenges Joe Bastardi, the King of Climate Change Deniers, to a six-year review of Bastardi’s 2010 prediction on Arctic sea ice behavior.

Just a couple of days ago, NASA announced that there is 40 percent less Arctic sea ice in the world than there was in the late 1970s. This followed the news that this January to June represented the hottest months in recorded history. Show More Summary
FALLEN ANGELS IS JUST A SCIENCE FICTION NOVEL, RIGHT GUYS? RIGHT? GUYS? Global Warming Expedition Stopped In Its Tracks By Arctic Sea Ice.
Submitted by Craig Boudreau via The Daily Caller, A group of adventurers, sailors, pilots and climate scientists that recently started a journey around the North Pole in an effort to show the lack of ice, has been blocked from further...Show More Summary
The first six months of 2016 have been the world’s hottest ever on record, according to NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration — the third year in a row to set a record. The heat has caused the Arctic sea ice to contract so rapidly that the ice cover may reach its lowest...
Last month, scientists reported an earlier-than-normal annual melting of Arctic sea ice, and now NASA researchers taking further stock of the situation are providing a clearer picture of exactly how fast it is shrinking and the reasons why. Show More Summary
This summer, with sea ice across the Arctic Ocean shrinking to below-average levels, a NASA airborne survey of polar ice just completed its first flights. Its target: aquamarine pools of melt water on the ice surface that may be accelerating the overall sea ice retreat.
If your life has felt like a hot mess this year, you’re not alone. Same goes for the Arctic, which month after month has seen its ice cover contract to new lows. By late September, Arctic sea ice may reach its lowest extent since satellite record-keeping began. Read more...
