With Arctic ice having reached its Minimum for 2023, it is time for the annual update. My figures come from NSIDC https://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/.
2023 is the fifth lowest on record. That is to say that four years had LOWER winter sea ice minima than this year.
The last seventeen (17) years show the lowest annual arctic sea ice minimum in the satellite record (ie since 1979). However, the trend over the last sixteen years 2007 – 2023 is -0.9% 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:
