Arctic Sea Ice Minumum 2022

With Arctic ice having reached its Minimum for 2022, it is time for the annual update. My figures come from NSIDC https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/.

2022 tied with 2010 as the eleventh lowest on record. That is to say that ten years had LOWER winter sea ice maxima that this year.

The last sixteen (16) years show the lowest annual arctic sea ice minimum in the satellite record (ie since 1979). However, the trend over the last sixteen years 2006 – 2022 is -0.05% per annum. That seems to me to be as close to flat as makes no difference.

With the correct use of the english language present tense, the world IS not warming.

Figures for annual minima are:
