Book review: “In the Kingdom of Ice,” polar voyage of USS Jeannette, by Hampton Sides: An additional very interesting book review in the Washington Post: http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/book-review-in-the-kingdom-of-ice-polar-voyage-of-uss-jeannette-by-hampton-sides/2014/08/01/8482add6-f58f-11e3-a3a5-42be35962a52_story.html

Jai, you are right and the USA Olygarchy/Plutocracy is in full swing. Read recent books by Matt Tiabbi and Thomas Piketty, and find out how the super-predator capitalist system is emerging. Not pretty.

The biggest problem is the audience questions: inaudible most of the time. Hold the microphone like a rock star, indeed!!

Jai Mitchell wrote: "Among them are some of the world's best known 'think tanks': The Competitive Enterprise Institute, the Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, the Hudson Institute, the Frontiers of Freedom Institute, the Reason Foundation and the Independent Institute, as well as George Mason University's Law and Economics Center." The "think" tanks share all in common that they are ALL bankrolled by the same billionaires who own Koch Industries: Charles and David Koch, sons of the notorious John Birch Society co-founder Fred Koch, the ultimate Fascist movement that still runs strong in the USA and morphed into the current Tea Party wing that took over most of the Republican Party today. The Koch brothers and their cronies are virtually in control of policy making in many USA states that are in control by the Republicans now.
And of course I join the chorus: Congrats Neven! Job well done but not finished...
Wayne wrote: "Must thank the Guardian as well, there are only a few well read newspapers in the world which cover climate accurately. Only this one and perhaps the Capital Gang which also recognized Neven's contributions in the first place." I cannot be sure but have been alerting the Capital Weather Gang of the WaPo and andrew Revkin of the NYT about the existence of this great blog on several occasions. Hope that helped to spread the impact.
Nuin Zeeland provided a link to a Dutch weather site showing arctic weather but, boy oh boy what a terrible job they do with drawing in the Ls and Hs: wrong in all the charts! Wonder if anyone there notices.

Ha, silly me, please ignore, it is the same one as posted at the top of the blog... There is no feature to delete the comment myself, so Neven, please go ahead and remove.... I don't mind!

Headline for ASI 2013 - update 6 is perhaps: melting has come to a halt? The CT SIA numbers have been flat for the last 7 days around 4.85..... Or are we in for another little "pop" of flash melt in August?
We could name the storm after Alaskan villages set to disappear soon: KIvalina? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-23346370

I mean CT SIA (not CIA) :-)
Toggle Commented Jul 25, 2013 on Second storm at Arctic Sea Ice
2007, 2011 and 2012 converge around Day 211 on CIA, which is 7 days from day 204, and 2013 only needs to drop around 0.6 from 4.85 to 4.25 to join in.

tropical tidbits is done by a young guy who lives in Alaska of all places (Levi Cowan), I enjoy his youtube analyses almost as much as Neven's blogposts! He started to do this a few years ago and also posted comments on Jeff Masters' Wunderblog. He has gotten pretty good! http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCrFIk7g_riIm2G2Vi90pxDA
you'd think that we as Dutch people living below sea level would take notice, ha! I will send my family still in the Netherlands a link of your superb blog, and hope they spread it. Now in Virgina USA I won't get my feet wet just yet, but we had our coldest March here in many years as did my family back home (we do share weather effects in common!).

A bit off-topic but Revkin at the NYTimes (DotEarth) posted something on the Arctic storm in August: http://dotearth.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/01/31/study-finds-arctic-cyclone-had-insignificant-impact-on-2012-ice-retreat/

The reason why Shell moved the Kulluk was simply tax evasion! See: http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/americas/new-twist-in-stricken-rig-saga-shell-was-moving-it-to-avoid-tax-8439128.html
