Imagine an America where all taxes were paid in full by the rich and corporations . One in which every nook and cranny of avoidance was sorted as the new base line of responsible being .
  The trillions of dollars sucked from the environment and the rest of the world to prop up the monster would be no longer needed . Everyone could have the best of medical care etc , care homes and carers would be fully funded . and And AND ...
  only the country and it's president are bust , but wrapped up in bluff and bluster . 100 million of you cannot admit you and your 'king' are wearing no clothes . b.c.

SB&N:
My understanding is that Trump used the laws to pay the minimum possible. That’s fine. I pay an accountant to make my taxes the minimum possible. So do a hundred million Americans. Now, if Trump broke the law that’s different. And maybe the laws should be different than they are, but they are what they are.

Does the movement of the large slab in the Spaltegletscher area count as calving?

Gerontocrat's stats say 99.8% of the melt season is over , today is the last day of an average melt season . Already some have ceased to update their stats as others head for the 'real' excitement of an election . Putting this season to bed so early may turn out to be a mistake .
   This is not an average melt season . It has been one of record breaking warmth . The ice , as Polarstern bears witness , is in a mobile , weak state . The damage done by the depression N. of the CAA was remarkable . As BFTV has remarked above , and A-team elsewhere , ice retreats with little resistance N. of Laptev ; and warm winds continue in the coming days
  Warm water , wind and waves are in wait , and will be for another week or two .  If a real storm enters the basin and stays a few days , volume and area could come crashing down  , extent may too . b.c.

I suppose we could break the trend .. perhaps a day 5 forecast will be realized for the 1'st time in over a month . I said at the end of July that what the Arctic needed for August was 'no weather' .. compared to the day 5 forecasts , it really had none , as storm after storm faded from forecasts . August continued with the heat ; will September bring the 'weather' ? b.c.

 Never mind 'not dropping' , the dmi80+ temp. has risen again . Yesterday it was sharing it's exceptional height with 2016 , today it is out on it's own . Open water , meltponds and warm winds are all working to extend the season . ECM's forecast keeps temps above or close to 0'C for the next week . b.c.

so they don't get lost again .. from tealight ..

Some time ago I posted regional snow extents, but the topic is kind of lost in the depth of the forum. After some minor improvements and adding two new regions in Asia I created a seperate webpage for the data. It makes it easier to analyse than several different forum posts.

On the snow-cover webpage, featuring snow maps I added the long term NOAA data since 1967. The low 200km resolution looks terrible compared to the new 24km, but the longer timespan is better to judge changes over time.
