Methane & other strong feedbacks led to huge sea ice differences in late June in the 2010s, with the smallest diff in April & December. 24-hr sunshine provides OH– radicals that remove Arctic CH4 from the air.
So, how much ice did we lose from the previous decade to this one? Let’s start with the good news, shall we? We lost only 6.7% flat, binary, 2D surface cover. What the bad news is? Well, we lost 22.0% of the sea ice. So there’s that….
One of the main reasons I designed this graph, was to detox victims of Big Oil propaganda lies like these:
«The annual average JAXA SIE is dropping at 0.6M sqkm/decade with greater loss through the summer (Jul-Sept) 0.8M sqkm/decade and lesser loss through the icy seasons (Jan-Jun) 0.45M sqkm/decade. For completeness, Autumn (Oct-Dec) is dropping at 0.64M sqkm/decade.»
These guys and their financial backers like to focus on the slightly dropping red graph below when they summarise a decade’s worth of sea ice loss. They’ll say “we lost less than 7% sea ice!” when in reality we lost 22%. They’re like the UN and the IPCC, lying through their teeth to kids all over the planet about their future life here on Earth. They ought to be ashamed of themselves, but their tactic is instead to make YOU feel shame for telling the naked truth.
#GoodHopeModel January 1: Our first ½ year long Arctic Blue Ocean Event could come as early as 2024–35. No sea ice for 6 months, in as little as 4–15 years?
About that: During the 6th episode of the Talking South talkshow on November 7th last year, Going South predicted that the Deep State / Military Industrial Complex would collapse along with Civilisation during the 2020s or 2030s, and here in August Pentagon confirms this analysis in its own report:

For some of the consequences of a summer half year Blue Ocean Event, press Play:
The 365–day running average for sea ice volume is still 2nd lowest and lower than 13.47 thousand km³, dropping by about 76 km³ per month. The prognosis suggests we’ll go lower than 2012 for the all–year average, pushing 2012 to #3 for low sea ice.
The 365–day running average for sea ice extent is now lower than 9.76 million km² and rising by about 1 thousand km² per month. The prognosis suggests 2019 will likely be 2nd lowest on record for the all–year average for sea ice cover.
The Year–To–Date average is still 2nd lowest for sea ice volume in the Arctic. The full year 2019 will likely be 2nd lowest, as the #1 spot held by 2017 is just completely out of the picture. 2020 might have a chance if we have an el–niño.
This year’s freeze season started September 15th, and since the minimum on the day before that, the season average has been the 3rd lowest on record. 2016 is in the lead, 2012 close behind. Ten–Year Trend, though, is still very stubbornly all–time low.
