According to Wipneus over on Neven's site, Volume has been experiencing century drops over the last few days. A combination of export and melting.
It has become apparent there are two camps. Those that expect what has happened in the past to inform what will happen this summer. And those that recognize we aren't in Kansas anymore, and are facing a sea-change.
The Arctic hasn't been 'following the rules' since last year. Why some expect it to suddenly jump back on the tracks and follow what has happened before is beyond me. Wishful thinking maybe?
We are experiencing Abrupt Climate Change. It is happening now. Not just in the Arctic, but globally.
We are not in Kansas anymore. Whatever you thought in previous years, it doesn't apply anymore.
I know a lot of you have got your ego on the line with this. You've been repeatedly wrong all along. Too conservative and way underestimating how close we were to this.
You are not about to admit you were wrong until the last nail is in the coffin. We understand this.
