Extreme Cold Hits the Arctic

Yeah, the silly season for globby warming is over!  Everybody is freezing to death.


Bookies have slashed the odds!  Might still be a good bet.  :)


All around it's -18c, which is the magic point for freezing saltwater.


Look at that ski-jump forming on the current curve!  The second-derivative on the curve is unprecedented.  Yeah!

The warmies are quiet.  Normally, I would expect more stories on how the jet stream is attacking us again.  Maybe they'll just huddle under their blankets until next July.

ps.  Future Headline:  Today, It Was Too Cold for Weekly Extinction Rebellion March.  Many still recovering from last week's frostbite.

how do you read this graph

The ice volume graph shows the seasonal change of Arctic ice volume over many years. Each line is a year, and you can see it going from Winter (very high) to Summer, which is at the bottom. The black line is right now. It was not quite at the least minimum in the last few years, but the rise in volume got delayed by a big El Nino rebound. Now it is on track and will probably hit a new maximum.
