In year 2000, climate scientists predicted the demise of Arctic sea ice and said sea ice thickness had declined 92% since the late 1950s from 10.2 feet to 5.9 feet.
“in late summer, submarine sonar measurements since the 1950s have shown a decline to 5.9 feet from 10.2 feet, or 92 percent.”
Ignoring the fact they lack primary school math skills, their statistics are also fake. During the late 1950s submarines reported that the ice was seven feet thick – not ten feet.

The Changing Face of the Arctic Some scientists estimate that the polar ice pack is 40 per cent thinner and 12 per cent less in area than it was a half-century ago, and that even within the lifetime of our children the Arctic Ocean may open, enabling ships to sail over the North Pole, as the submarines Nautilus and Skate recent-ly sailed under it. A ship bound from New York to Tokyo would save 2,500 Although the idea that a solid ice sheet covers the central Arctic has lingered stubbornly in the popular fancy, the northern cap of ice worn by our planet is actually a thin crust—on the whole, only about seven feet thick—over an ocean two miles deep in places.”
