The Arctic Blue-Ocean-Event (BOE). When? Then What?

The Arctic Blue-Ocean-Event (BOE). When? Then What? // Sep 20, 2018

We are hurtling towards the Blue Ocean Event (BOE) in the Arctic. Nobody knows for sure when it will happen.

From my analysis, which I discuss in this video, my best guess is that the BOE will happen in 2022. There will be essentially NO sea ice in the Arctic Ocean for a few weeks to a month in September, 2022.

After this BOE happens, then what will follow in subsequent years? I think that by BOE+2 years the Arctic Ocean will be ice free for August, September, and October. By BOE+4 years it will be ice free for 5 months, and by BOE+10 years the Arctic Ocean will be free of sea ice year round.


During this decade of gut-wrenching transition, our climate and weather patterns will be profoundly disrupted, chaotic, and unstable, for example presenting enormous risks to our global food supply.

Jet Stream Center-of-Rotation to Shift 17 degrees Southward from North Pole to Greenland with Arctic // Sep 9, 2018

When all the sea-ice in the Arctic has vanished from melt and transport, what will happen? This so-called Blue-Ocean-Event (BOE) in the Arctic will mean that the last bastion of ice and coldness in the Arctic will be Greenland.

Thus, instead of the Center-of-Coldness or Centroid (I name it ColdTroid) being near the North Pole, as it has been in human history it will be centred over the middle of Greenland, and thus be at about 73 degrees N latitude.

  • Thus, to first-order simplicity, one can expect the jet streams to shift their center of rotation 17 degrees from the North Pole where they are now towards Greenland.
  • This jet stream shift, causing a decoupling from Earth’s axis of rotation, obviously has profound consequences for our global weather patterns and climate system and human civilization, and plants and animals, and, for example our ability to grow food.

But hey; humans will at least be able to drill and mine the Arctic, at least those of us that are left.

Tonight it was a great delight to attend a FREE Public Policy Meeting at the Sandy Hill Community Center in Ottawa, on:

Climate Change, Collapsing Ecosystems & Unsustainable Global Policies, by friend and acclaimed public speaker Stuart Scott Executive Director of Scientist Warning to Humanity and Climate Matters TV.  His main channel is here.

This was wonderfully promoted and hosted by Charles Gregoire and Heidi Brault (organizers).
