Arctic Sea Ice has recovered: Debunking UNSkeptical UNScience

Another debunking of one of UNSkeptical UNScience -SS's- so-called "Myths." This time debunking their #44

Debunking of all 178 will be found on this page - SS "Myths" debunked.

"Arctic sea ice has recovered"Thick arctic sea ice is in rapid retreat.

Arctic sea ice HAS recovered

 Figure 7:20 Link

It has. The IPCC in Far, Figure 7.20, page 224 (see above), shows the low point for Arctic sea ice was in 1974 which was before the weather satellites began in 1979 (Figure 7.20 here). 

The Arctic had much less ice 6000 years ago:-

Arctic Ocean perennial sea ice breakdown during the Early Holocene Insolation Maximum   Stranne et al -Quaternary Science Reviews

The Abstract begins:
Arctic Ocean sea ice proxies generally suggest a reduction in sea ice during parts of the early and middle Holocene (∼6000–10,000 years Before the Present) compared to present day conditions. This sea ice minimum has been attributed to the northern hemisphere Early Holocene Insolation Maximum (EHIM) associated with Earth’s orbital cycles. 

In the modern era Arctic temperature peaked before 1950, causing sea ice to peak and then decline.The decline continued until 2013 when it increased. 2013 is important because it was
predicted by Gore and other alarmists that the Arctic would be ice free in Summer by 2013.

Al Gore Forecasted “Ice-Free” Arctic by 2013; Ice Cover Expands 50%

Self-styled “global-warming” guru Al Gore (shown) and a gaggle of supposed “climate scientists” have egg all over their faces — big time. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, Gore publicly and very hysterically warned that the North Pole would be “ice-free” by around 2013 because of alleged “man-made global warming.” Citing “climate” experts, the government-funded BBC hyped the mass hysteria, running a now-embarrassing article under the headline: “Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013’.”
