Dear reader of this critical Suisse scientists blog
today we propose you a bet:
What will be the minimum arctic ice coverage this September 2015.
My bet for this year (made end of May)is: less than 3.5 million km2 (far below of the IPPC model predictions saying that one standard deviation low would be 5 million km2 for this decade), but first have a look here and click on additional years to sea the annual variations. So far the melting was very rapid, but slowed down since June. http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/charctic-interactive-sea-ice-graph/
or on page 19 here to see the recorded minimum during the past decades:
so please comment and place your bet here.
