Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sep 21 2014 – 9th All-Time Record in 9 Days

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sep 21 2014 – 1,550,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 263. Data here.

9th All-Time Record in 9 Days. But only a 15,000 sq km gain. But still 4 standard deviations above the mean.

Antarctic Sea Ice and Penguin Stupidity From the Guardian

During the most amazing run of of record Antarctic Sea Ice Extent and Area ever, a comment at Bishop Hill reminds us of the recent prediction by “researchers“.

Sunday 29 June 2014

“The entire population of Antarctica’s famous emperor penguins could fall by a third by the end of the century because of disappearing sea ice, putting them at risk of extinction, researchers said on Sunday.”

” the main threat to emperor penguins’ survival comes from climate change which is melting the sea ice.”

“The loss of sea ice is reducing the supply of krill”

Disappearing Sea Ice? Melting sea ice? What loss?

Update: Comment from kyomu (thanks) reminded me that I had posted yesterdays graph. The graph is now correct. Apologies.

Antarctic Sea Ice Area is still skyrocketing. (difference between Area/Extent here)

Another day another 95,000 sq km. 570,000 sq km above the old record from 2007. 6th All-Time Record in a Row
