Arctics Sea Ice Volume Up 15% Since 2007
Posted on December 2, 2017 by tonyheller

    “Science is the Belief in the Ignorance of Experts”
    — Richard Feynman

Since the end of November 2007, Arctic sea ice volume is up 15% from 13,000 km³ to 15,000 km³. There has been a huge expansion of thick ice into the East Siberian Sea.

2007     2017

Arctic sea ice extent is normal, rapidly increasing, and close to the 1981-2010 average.
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

At least they are finally talking about volume and not just extent, but look at the animation...they cherry-picked the 2007 low-volume year.  It's still below all the other years on the graph.

And even the extent barely falls within the bottom edge of "normal".

So much for encouraging news.  **nononono*
