Forget the ice caps. Unless there is some real difference in how they assemble the photographs, there is WAY more snow cover in May than there used to be.
Beginning? Don, you are so droll!
Doubt, Don? ;-)I don't doubt our gubment. I know they are a bunch of dang liars!
To my eye, it looks as if there's now more area of high concentration of ice and less area of low concentration of ice. But eyeball estimates can be deceiving. At The Cryosphere Today Web site, from which these figures were taken, actual measurements of total sea ice concentration (=fractional sea area coverage) are reported. Those results suggest a loss of 1 million square km in the amount of Northern Hemisphere sea ice between 1995 and 2015. The graphs presented there show a lot of year-to-year fluctuation in the amount of sea ice, but the downward trend from 1995 is unmistakable. The decline in the global (vs just the Northern Hemisphere) sea ice coverage, on the other hand, appears less pronounced.
No, but by all means take pride in your lack of comprehension.Cheers
If you disagree with my post, you can point out the error in it. But posting an insult merely demonstrates to everyone that you are a moron and a troll and a fool.
