Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sep 22 2014 – 1,488,000 sq km above Normal

Antarctic Sea Ice Extent Sep 22 2014 – 1,488,000 sq km above the 1981-2010 mean. Data for Day 264. Data here.

Extent has also taken a downwards turn (as has Area). There will be no “10th all-time record in 10 days” this year (unless it gets really weird).

But 2014 will hold the record for most days over 20 million because 2014 is the only year it has ever happened.

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?
