Arctic Sea Ice, 14.270,000 Km2 Above Forecast

Yesterday’s Arctic sea ice extent came in at 14,270,000 square kilometers, which happens to be 14.27 million Km2 more than Al Gores forecast for this winter.

While that is well below the norm, no one expected Asian soot and fly ash to almost put a stop to freezing on the Sea of Okhotsk, which in itself cut the winter freeze maximum by 500,000 Km2. When all the factors are factored in, this winter’s max will be some 800,000 Km2 short because of that same soot and ash.

This would be a serious problem if it is allowed to continue, but according to news reports, the governments involved are beginning to show an interest in scrubbing and filtering the problem emissions.
