All–Time Low Annual Average Sea Ice Extent

The 365–day running average for sea ice extent is now lower than 9.8 million km² and dropping by about 39 thousand km² per month. The prognosis suggests 2019 could be lowest on record or 2nd for the all–year average for sea ice cover.

Q: Where’s the data source for this plot?
A: Here: https://ads.nipr.ac.jp/vishop/#/extent
Q: How can anyone make an annual average graph?
A: Easy. Use a computer. Add all the ice for the latest 365 days, divide by that number of days.
Q: Why would I even do that?
A: Let’s say you want to know how much ice we have in 2019 compared to other years.

Due in large part to ongoing Collapse of Arctic Sea Ice our Frozen Earth is Going South.

Arctic Sea Ice Collapse Timelapse | Max to July 31st

everything will be all right …
everything will turn out fine …

Music by Sisters of Mercy: “No Time To Cry” (1985).

It’s just a feeling
I get sometimes
A feeling
Sometimes
And I get frightened
Just like you
I get frightened too
But it’s…

No time for heartache
(no no no) No time to run and hide
(no no no) No time for breaking down
(no no no) No time to cry

Sometimes in the world as is you’ve
Got to shake the hand that feeds you
It’s just like Adam says
It’s not so hard to understand
It’s just like always coming down on
Just like Jesus never came and
What did you expect to find
It’s just like always here again it’s…

No time for heartache
(no no no) No time to run and hide
(no no no) No time for breaking down
(no no no) No time to cry

Everything will be alright
Everything will turn out fine
Some nights I still can’t sleep
And the voices pass with time
And I keep

No time for tears
No time to run and hide
No time to be afraid of fear
I keep no time to cry

No time for tears
No time to run and hide
No time to be afraid of fear
I keep no time to cry

No time for heartache
(no no no) No time to run and hide
(no no no) No time for breaking down
(no no no) No time to cry

The Planet’s ice tipping point was passed long before No Time To Cry was recorded, as shown in Past, Present and Future Arctic Sea Ice.

Due in large part to ongoing Collapse of Arctic Sea Ice our Frozen Earth is Going South.

Annual Average Sea Ice Extent

In early March we went beyond the 10 mark for the first time since June 2016, by averaging higher than 10 million km² sea ice extent. Now the worm has turned, and explicitly suggested in a dotted way below, is the possibility of a new record low for the full calendar year. Of course, as soon as such a thing is suggested, the Arctic will twist and turn like the giant unpredictable Midgardsorm it is, or at least the pendulum will go back and forth a few times, before we truly know where we’re heading.

Q: Where’s the data source for this plot?
A: Here: https://ads.nipr.ac.jp/vishop/#/extent
Q: How can anyone make an annual average graph?
A: Easy. Use a computer. Add all the ice for the latest 365 days, divide by that number of days.
Q: Why would I even do that?
A: Let’s say you want to know how much ice we have in 2019 compared to other years.

Arctic sea ice volume refreeze

Arctic sea ice volume refreeze has come 99% of the way since Summer Minimum per March 31st. The lowest volume year ever, 2017, by the same date, was at 87%.

Q: Where’s the data source for this plot?
A: Here: http://psc.apl.uw.edu/research/projects/arctic-sea-ice-volume-anomaly/data/
Q: How can anyone know if there is a full refreeze?
A: Easy. Use a computer. If you have e.g a 17 thousand km³ volume melt, and then the refreeze is also 17 thousand km³, then you have a full, or 100%, refreeze.
Q: Why would I even do that?
A: Let’s say you want to know how much ice refreezes compared to how much ice that melted away.

Into the Blue Again

Arctic sea ice extent is lowest on record for the date.

Meanwhile, the much more important data for sea ice volume can be seen in this zoomed out 10–year chart:

Sea ice volume showing an irreversible, post–Tipping Point collapse towards zero Arctic sea ice. Arguably, this is the most significant graph in all of human history, revealing both the lies of the UN and the larger Climate Change Community and the now inevitable fate of Global Industrial Civilisation.

Please help share this most important graph revealing persistent decline and a climate Tipping Point several decades back in our past: The true Tipping Point for ice is not at a future date or a yet to materialise future temperature threshold, it already happened.

Should you need more walk–through / explanation of the chart, I’ve got that in these fine videos: youtu.be/hXjbUY-Nt3Q | youtu.be/w8Hh5f68lhA | youtu.be/4DhzKbx21S8

Q: Where’s the data source for this plot?
A: Here: http://psc.apl.uw.edu/research/projects/arctic-sea-ice-volume-anomaly/data/
Q: How can anyone make a decadal average graph?
A: Easy. Use a computer. Add all the ice for the latest 3650 days, divide by that number of days.
Q: Why would I even do that?
A: Let’s say you want to know how much ice we have in the latest decade compared to the decades before that.

Arctic sea ice extent meltdown

Arctic sea ice extent meltdown has come 5% of the way from Winter Maximum to a Blue Ocean Event per March 29th. The lowest extent year ever, 2016, by the same date, was at 2%.

Q: Where’s the data source for this plot?
A: Here: https://ads.nipr.ac.jp/vishop/#/extent
Q: How can anyone know if there is a Blue Ocean Event?
A: Easy. Use a computer. If you have less than 1 million km² sea ice extent in the Arctic, then you have a Blue Ocean Event.
Q: Why would I even do that?
A: Let’s say you want to know when the Arctic Ocean goes ice–free. Basing this on satellite measurements instead of gut feeling makes your conversations more interesting.
