'Old' Arctic Ice Melts Away in Seconds

Interesting time lapse video of melting ice at the north pole.

"Watch 27 Years of 'Old' Arctic Ice Melt Away in Seconds. The total amount of Arctic sea ice is near record low for this time of year. The amount of ice isn't the only big story, though. A video from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration shows a disturbing trend in the age of Arctic ice."

I've noticed a similarly disturbing trend with my age.



Not a good time to be a polar bear.

Re: 'Old' Arctic Ice Melts Away in Seconds

Sea ice extent grew 2.00 million square kilometers (772,000 square miles) during the month of December. This was about average for the month. Throughout the month, daily extents were about one standard deviation below 1981 to 2010 averages. This occurred despite the fairly warm conditions over the Eurasian side of the Arctic Ocean. As averaged over the month, air temperatures at the 925 hPa level in the Laptev and East Siberian seas were up to 5 degrees Celsius (9 degrees Fahrenheit) above average, linked to a region of unusually high pressure in the region that led to southerly winds.

I think the data tells a different story!!

Six decades years of Arctic sea ice extent.



This looks close to 2 SD below the mean
