The linked article is so over the top with linguistic gymnastics it was nearly torturous to unfold. But unfold it I did! Included below are the facts of the matter without the convoluted and unnecessary wording
Lots of Arctic Sea Ice
Arctic sea ice extent in May 2022 was 12.88 million square kilometers (4.97 million square miles)
tracking above levels not seen since 2013.
The Hudson Bay, the Beaufort Sea, the Canadian Archipelago, the Eats Siberian Sea, the Laptev Sea, the Chuchi Sea, and the Kara Sea are still almost completely frozen
This extent is the highest in the last 9 years
Sea ice extent in the Barents Sea is higher than usual in the last 5 years as it was for the entire month of May, as well as for the entire 2022 so far, especially between March and April.
Sea ice extent in the Beaufort Sea is also higher than usual in the last 5 years at about 1.07 millions square kilometers.
In the Laptev Sea things went much different than usual. After an abrupt sea ice decline started after the first half of May,
sea ice extent started growing again from 790 to 880 thousand square kilometers.
In the Canadian Archipelago, the Sea Ice extent remained rather constant through the month of May without decreasing with the typical trend observed in the most recent years.
The present extent is around 850 thousand square kilometers, which is definitely higher than what has been observed in the very last years.
HOW WAS THE SPRING IN THE ARCTIC
Answer it was cold! Just like it’s been cooler then norm where I reside (Southern Ontario)
“Sea ice in Spring declined slower than usual this year”
Temperatures in the core of the lobe from -65 to -75 °C were detected, which is extremely cold even for these levels and especially for early spring
May, sea ice extent was tracking above levels not seen since 2013. The relatively
high general ice cover for this time of the year was mostly the result of lower than average temperatures in the Baffin Bay.
Love the disclaimer at the end.. Consider this presentation in contrast to the one that is always presented by the compliant, misleading media. You know the presentation that goes like this
- The planet is in fire
- The planet is on fire
- Carbon = Bad
- Humans = Bad
Bad Carbon based life forms aka Humans + Bad Carbon aka “fossil fuels” = Planet on Fire
Here’s the disclaimer
When trying to diagnose any weather season and the long-range forecasts, we have to bear in mind many of the global drivers that define it. Global weather is a very intricate system, with several large-scale and small-scale aspects.
Yes, global weather is very intricate. Something the carbon cult never acknowledges other then to excuse or explain away their multitudinous errors, predictions, better known as lies
