Antarctica Sea Ice Extent 3rd Highest of All-Time on Sept 27 2013

Yet the IPCC still predict Antarctic melting and are 110% certain we are to blame for everything, ever. Amen.

Antarctica Sea Ice Extent took an unexpected 50,000 sq km jump yesterday. It was the 3rd highest extent of all-time.

The top 5 Antarctic Sea Ice Extents of all-time all occurred since Sept 14th 2013.  10 out of the top 15 were in 2013. The remaining 5 occurred in 2012.

2013 has also set 55 daily records.

IPCC Statement About Last 3 Decades

sunshine hours

“Each of the last three decades has been successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850”

My Response (using HADCRUT4 data)

Decade Mean Anomaly C

1850 -0.32
1860 -0.33
1870 -0.26
1880 -0.30
1890 -0.36
1900 -0.41
1910 -0.39
1920 -0.25
1930 -0.12
1940 0.00
1950 -0.06
1960 -0.05
1970 -0.08

Each of the 4 decades after the 1870s were successively COLDER at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850

Why did it take until the 1920s to get as warm as the 1870s?

Each of the 3 decades after the 1900s were successively warmer at the Earth’s surface than any preceding decade since 1850

But the next 3 decades after the 1940s were COLDER than the 1940s.

Why?

Explain your work.
