We may have reached the Max for this year, after this date there is rarely any more significant growth.

With a significant warming event throughout the Arctic at least through the 24th, we may see declines from here.

Models show a continued wave of 960-980mb LPS buffering the Bering with sustained southerly winds and waves. It seems the Bering front should continue to retreat following the losses from 2/6-14. Perhaps substantially so.

The level of injustice and wrong you endure is directly determined by how much you quietly submit to. Even to the point of extinction.

First Commercial Ship crosses Arctic Ocean in Winter without an icebreaker


And, just to add a note of irony, the first commercial ship in the Arctic ocean in winter was an LNG tanker filled with methane---the super greenhouse gas that is causing rapid warming in the Arctic.


It was just a few years ago commercial ships starting cross the Arctic in summer WITH an icebreaker. Then they traveled in summer without an icebreaker. And now we've got a tanker crossing a big part of the Arctic Ocean in winter without an icebreaker.

Its just A M A Z I N G how quickly global warming is destroying the Arctic Sea Ice.
