Sea Ice Extent – Day 91 – Antarctica Sets 21st Daily Record of Year – Global Sea Ice Still Above ‘Normal’

But some optimists still think global warming is about to make a comeback.

Antarctica set a daily record for day 91. The old record was from 2014 and was broken by only 12,000 sq km.

This would be the 21st Daily Record for 2015.

The “streak” just shows the place for each day so for example Jan 1 was 2nd highest, Jan 2 was a record etc :

    We have a prediction.

    [quote] How much of a temperature jump should we expect? Last month, Trenberth explained to Living on Earth:
    Trenberth says it could mean a rise of two- or three-tenths-of-a-degree Celsius, or up to half a degree Fahrenheit. The change could occur “relatively abruptly,” but then stick around for five or 10 years.

    I interviewed Trenberth this week, and he told me that he thinks “a jump is imminent.” When I asked whether he considers that “likely,” he answered, “I am going to say yes. Somewhat cautiously because this is sticking my neck out.”

    Comparing ice extent estimates:

    “For comparison, MASIE shows about 700,000 Km2 more ice extent than NOAA both at maximum and minimum. This is usually explained by microwave sensors seeing melt water on top of ice the same as open water.”
