The ice melts out of Hudson Bay in early July and does not return till November. The 1000's of polar bears in the Hudson Bay region do just fine without it for a few months.
The natural variability of Greenland climate
For the arctic, we are talking about melting from mid-August to mid-September. Big deal, the Bears camp out on land for a month or two. Most females spend 1 year on land when they are ready to give birth.
The ice will refreeze in the arctic as soon as the 6 months of 24 darkness sets in on September 21 or 22 every year.
The average person will just absorb this global warming lie because of the picture and junk science used. (See note this below) The data is doctored to look like a dramatic change in the artic but in reality it is all man made global warming on paper. The data was skewed to result in a false model of artic ice melting. Keep in mind the ice in the arctic normally melts every year from mid aug to mid sep. Melting is normal for the arctic. Keep in mind the data is flawed and doctored to portray climate change, ie global warming. Climate change is normal, global warming does not exist.
A fabled sea route above North America linking the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans has become a reality thanks to global warming.
Scientists have confirmed that in August, Arctic sea ice shrank to its lowest levels since satellite measurements began monitoring the region nearly 30 years ago. One consequence of this is that the Northwest Passage has opened up much earlier than expected.
"We're several decades ahead of schedule right now," said Mark Serreze, a senior scientist at the University of Colorado's National Snow and Ice Data Center, which monitors the region.
The premature opening of the passage does not mean that climate models are unreliable, only that their predictions have been far too conservative, Serreze said. "They're getting the right trajectory, but they're too slow," he said.
Arctic Sea Ice Continues Decline to Set New Records ?
The modern low was in 1961, after which it increased dramatically well into the satellite era. No it wasn't. A mistake was made in interpretation of a paper.
The sea ice extent chart from 1961 was in 100,000s of sq. kms versus 1,000,000 sq. kms in the rest of the paper and how the sea ice is always measured. It actually makes no sense to chart the ice in 100,000s of sq. kms because it can change by that much on a DAILY basis. The paper probably had an error on the axis title but I have no way of knowing that since it was produced in the 1970s.
On the other hand, the current sea ice record low could also be the result of an error since the NSIDC re-wrote the sea ice data so dramatically this January.
