Arctic sea ice volume now one-fifth its 1979 level

The stunning loss of Arctic sea ice extent in recent years is undeniable--satellite measurements have conclusively shown that half of the Arctic sea ice went missing in September 2012, compared to the average September during 1979 - 2000. But the extent of ice cover is not the best measure of how the fire raging in Earth's attic is affecting sea ice--the total volume of the ice is more important. But up until 2010, we didn't have the measurements needed to say how the total volume of ice in the Arctic might be changing. Scientists relied on the University of Washington PIOMAS model, which suggested that the loss of Arctic sea ice volume during September might be approaching 75% - 80%. The model results were widely criticized by climate change skeptics as being unrealistic. However, in April 2010, a new satellite called Cryostat-2 was launched, which can measure ice volume by beaming pulses of microwave energy off of the ice. With two years of data to Cryosat-2 data to analyze, the results of the PIOMAS model have now been confirmed by a study published on-line in February 2013 in Geophysical Research Letters. In a University of Washington news release, co-author Axel Schweiger said, "people had argued that 75 to 80 percent ice volume loss was too aggressive. What this new paper shows is that our ice loss estimates may have been too conservative, and that the recent decline is possibly more rapid." The U.K.'s Natural Environmental Research Council reported that the team of scientists found that from 2003 to 2012, the volume of Arctic sea ice declined 36% in the autumn and 9% in the winter. The measure of sea ice volume is a good indicator of how the Arctic's most stable, "multi-year" ice is fairing. As the multi-year ice declines, sea ice extent, the total area covered by sea ice, in an "Arctic death spiral". The new study shows that thick, multi-year ice has disappeared in areas north of Greenland, around the Canadian Archipelago, and to the northeast of Svalbard, Norway.

Why care about Arctic sea ice loss?
If you remove an area of sea ice 43% the size of the contiguous U.S. from the ocean, like occurred in September 2012, it is guaranteed to have a significant impact on weather and climate. The extra heat and moisture added to the atmosphere as a result of all that open water over the pole may already be altering jet stream patterns in fall and winter, bringing an increase in extreme weather events. The record sea ice loss in 2012 also contributed to an unprecedented melting event in Greenland. Continued sea ice loss will further increase melting from Greenland, contributing to sea level rise and storm surge damages. Sea ice loss will also continue to crank up the thermostat over Arctic permafrost regions. This will potentially release a significant fraction of the vast amounts of carbon currently locked in the permafrost, further accelerating global warming.

He is definitely a smart man, no denying that. However, just like the StormCon, naming of winter Storms, the Torcon is just another index to help boost ratings. I know numerous meteorologists, met students, and research students who find it laughable at times.

Truth is a vital commodity to have, without it society resembles exactly what we see today. At the end of the day though, what we can do as individuals against the majority who deny action must be taken now is very little. The great secret of life is the only truly good we'll ever do is what we do for others. That's paraphrasing C.S Lewis. It'd be great to see hundreds if not thousands here debating such topics as the rapid decline in the Arctic Sea ice; unfortunately there are only dozens here in a country of hundreds of millions. We, as a people, google porn and Britney Spears far more than man driven climate change. We are idols unto ourselves and our priorities couldn't be further from where they should be. So I appreciate those on both sides of the debate here; at least those who deny care enough to have the discussion. Most Americans just don't care at all.

Surprisingly, landspouts, though they appear weak, can have winds up to EF3 level. Although that is relatively rare.

The word "denial", the root of "denialist," first appeared in the 1520's, well before the Holocaust.

Some may prefer "skeptic" over "denialist". I can dig that. I mean, I prefer to be called "A person who has found no compelling evidence to deny the conclusion of the overwhelming majority of scientists on the topic of AGW" instead of an "AGWcreationist." But hey, you can't always get what you want...

Some of you know me from the WU/CC blog, where I have indicated my interest in the psychological and sociological aspects of AGW/CC (anthropogenic global warming/climate change), and the non-science-based denialism that prevents our society from facing the challenge head on and trying to do something about the disaster we are facing.

In spite of the whining and protests, the label of denialist is quite accurate, and skeptic would not be applicable. There is a CC section right here at WU that disproves nearly every, if not all, of the misleading, and/or false denialist points that AGWcreationists has posted. His/her points do not reflect anything based on currently accepted real, peer-reviewed science. Many of the utterly false and msleading points AGWcreationists make are rather simply malarkey that is promoted by people and organizations with a non-science-based agenda to plant doubt and mistrust of things that are demonstrably true.

I sincerely doubt that AGWc has attempted to learn anything about the science of AGW/CC. You don't have to read the scientific journal papers yourself, because is is extremely simple to find clear and accurate reporting on them via Google searches.

If any of you "doubters" want to actually learn about the science of anthropogenic global warming and climate change, simply go to the top of this page and click on the "Climate" tab. Take some time - not all in one sitting - and read everything there, and then follow the links to places like the skeptical science website (the source of the below graphic). When you come back here and see discussions of AGW/CC, you'll have a much better understanding of the science of AGW/CC that Dr. Masters, Angela Fritz, and Dr. Ricky Rood (at the dedicate WU/CC blog) - and the intelligent and informed posters here are talking about.

Any poster at WU who posts any of the below anti-climate change myths should not be considered a credible skeptic, but rather a denialist - because they are denying the truth.

And I will say to you as some one who has read Sociology and Psychology at 3rd Level , That applying labels is an effort to social exclude and dehumanize , the person you are applying the label to. History has shown what happens to people who have labels attached ... I suggest you should think twice before applying such labels

Q:
if you were in a car traveling at the speed of light and turned on the headlights, would a beam of light project outwards? or would the light simply not light up the area in front of the car?

Hi,

The good news is that cars do not travel at the speed of light. Only massless particles, like photons, may travel at the speed of light, and in fact massless particles may travel at no other speed. An object which has some mass, like a car, requires ever more energy to accelerate it to speeds approaching the speed of light, and no matter how much energy you give the car, it will always travel at a speed less than the speed of light.

The question might then be what would the situation be like if the car were going at 0.9999999 times the speed of light? If you are in the car, and look only at stuff which is traveling along with you at your speed, you would not notice the difference, and the headlights will work normally. If another car is ahead of you traveling at the same speed, then your headlights will light up that other car and you will see it normally. This happens because the laws of physics are the same in all inertial frames of reference (where "intertial" means "moving uniformly without accelerating". Rotating also involves acceleration, so the frame of reference cannot turn).

Strange that it did not affect the sea level.
When the ice in your ignored glass of soda melts, does the level of liquid rise up and overflow? No!
Its the land-based ice - mainly Greenland and Antarctic - that will raise sea level - just like if you put a BIG scoop of ice into your already full glass, it will overflow.

Be careful about spouting simple misconceptions. No need to look silly when when you can learn a huge amount about AGW/CC right here at WU by clicking on the Climate Change tab at the top of the page!

It's not too rare. Often times when powerful systems move on shore, that part of California gets a couple landspout tornadoes. I'm willing to bet that more tornadoes happen there than are reported. As is the case in most of the country.

Here's some info: Link

The carbon we exhale is created from carbon we ingested, which is in turn ingested by a plant which we eat (or an animal that ate the plant) to form a cycle. Obviously, it was working until we started to release the carbon locked up within the earth's crust by burning it. So no, we will not be taxed for exhaling CO2 as part of a natural cycle. Or maybe we won't be able to afford to breathe, and the carbon in our body will be released through decomposition. They can't tax you after you're gone :)

The four stages of climate change denial.
1. Nothing is happening
2. Something is happening, but man isn't causing it.
3. Something is happening, and man is causing it, but it will be beneficial.
4. It's too late to fix it.



I'm on stage 5 - We're obviously screwed well past the point of no return so let's be cynical, laugh at denialists, keep tabs on what goes on, seize the weather today while it's still pretty tame, and watch nature slowly tear down humanity.
