Good or not is entirely a matter of perspective...
No I have not changed my opinions. Apparently neither have you. AGW is a minor part of the equation. Natural cycles are more of the reason for the melt of sea ice that was happening in the Arctic. ( It is / was due to the natural cycles of the AMO which is now entering a cooling phase. Also the PDO is also entering a cooling phase.) Thankfully sea ice is making a comeback . ( Volume is well above the 2016 numbers . )

Well perhaps you should since it is held by no one else. My 'opinions'-- which are not mine, but those of accredited climatologists, ice scientists and similarly credible people --will change when some data refuting them is provided. Sad to say, but your personal, incomplete understanding of the systems involved isn't quite up to the task.

My opinion of your misunderstanding of this is well illustrated by your implication that 'sea ice is making a comeback' because the 2017-18 volume is a bit higher than that of (I suppose) 2015-16, one of (if not the) lowest years on record.

As
I'm sure you never tire of hearing, global (averaged globally) climate change is characterized not by daily local observations (or in this case bi-yearly, as that is the cycle of the phenomena in question), but by trend changes over a given period of time, the minimum generally agreed upon being 30 years...

Time will tell and 30 years doesn't even cover one full cycle of the AMO (look more along the lines of at a minimum a half a century.) Btw a hundred and twelve years ago they were able to sail from the Atlantic to the Pacific in one season ) I suppose that was due to the theory of AGW also .

Maybe if you quit beating your head against the wall your senses will clear enough to realize that the guys who are sucking up all those lucrative grants are also aware of, and take into consideration, any (and many more, imposed by themselves and other people who are trained in and are beginning to understand these systems more and more well) of the few legitimate points under-informed laypeople sometimes bring up.


"Btw a hundred and twelve years ago they were able to sail from the Atlantic to the Pacific in one season )"

do you not understand? And what does a single (who made this trip, how well is it documented?) passage have to do with anything? As presented, it has as much validity as a non-'A'GW bellwether as your "time-will-tell 'volume' recovery" of 2018...

And with that I'm off to try and free or break the last frozen, rusted bolt holding an exhaust manifold on a Crusader 502, cracked in the recent big freeze. 17F?, in Slidell? what global warming!...

exactly and that is global cooling in its early stages .

btw in reference those guys sucking up all of those grants
Its impossible to get a guy to understand when his paycheck depends on not understanding.

One year is not a trend.

112 years ago Amundsen was stuck in Arctic ice for 2 years. It took him from 1903 to 1906 to transit the NWP.

Not quite correct the first two years he was trying to get to the magnetic North Pole the third year he was convinced to continue the journey .

So who made the transit in a single season 112 years ago?

Not just that, I'm much more worried about the noise pollution under water. With the increased shipping the underwater creatures are disturbed in not only their navigation, but also in their hunting skills. That is not only the case for whales, but also for Cod, Narwhal, Beluga, Walrus and many other species. We are ff'-ing up a lot on this planet

What is the nature of that question? It took me three months in 2015, not because the environmental conditions slowed me down, but because we took our time to look around in the area, if we rushed we could have done it in 11 days or even less.
Amundsen could have done it in two seasons if he did not have a scientific program to run parallel to his transit. It is certain he did have a bit more ice on his way than we did, so the area is definitely changing.

You keep rejecting the answer.
I don't believe this report as it does not take the consequences of the breaking in account. I have seen the results of icebreakers with my own ice. It causes ice to move around and the sheets rub off on each other increasing erosion speed.
the reason that Arctic ice is dissapearing faster and faster is because it is more broken up. Even in winter time you cannot walk to the north pole anymore. You'll have to swim at least 10% of the distance.

After having spent 22 years in the Arctic, I can say with certainty that some bays are fully ice free at a certain time in the spring, while the neighboring bay is fully icecovered. The only difference is that an icebreaker was in the first bay a few weeks/months earlier. Hence, melting speed increases significantly when ice is broken up with an icebreaker.

Re: The NorthEAST Passage Over Siberia Norway to the Pacific

On a positive note sea ice is within normal range for this time of year
