Yesterday’s Arctic Sea Ice extent, at 12,306,000 square kilomters. That is far froim record setting, which is actually a good thing. If it were less, it would be a strong indication that Asian particulate pollution, soot and fly ash for the most part, is having a major effect on Arctic sea ice. If the ice extent were much more, it would be an early warning of an ice age.
Arctic air temps are BELOW tghe satellite age mean, bu just as important, the smooth rise toward 32F is a likely indicator that a trend has taken hold.
That thought is supported charts indicating a cooling ocean. Click on the link, scroll down to the first row of charts, click on the rightmost image, and then click on the chart to see the temperature b boundaries clearly.
A year ago the Pacific west of Puget Sound was marked by yellows and oranges, marking very warm water that brought unusually warm temperatures from the Aleutians to Tijuana. This year, the oranges have gone to equatorial latitudes, and the yellows are south of Baja.
Off Puget Sound, orange and sometimes red has given way to a cool arctic blue. At this rate, the prediction of Arctic temperatures for the northern Pacific will be a reality by the end of Trump’s first term.
And down here, so deep in the American South tat, as the Cajun Congressman told the DC society lady, “If I lived any further sout’ I’d be a sof’ shell crab,” the expected temperatures in the low 90’s have given way to temperatures in the mid-70s.
If our climate follows the cours laid out by astrophysicists, climate historians, and other legitimate practitioners of science, the decline in temperatures should continue through 2026, with a total of a 5.5F decline in temperature. We will still have summers – but they will be much shorter and slightly cooler.
And those who profit from swelling “global warming” will still be out on the street corner with their crank organ, trained monkey, and tin cup, begging for your tax dollars.
