“The Guardian sees the light on wind driven Arctic ice loss“. As Anthony Watts knows, newspapers are where science happens. Anthony seems to think that there’s a grudging admission about Arctic ice underway at The Guardian, at least partly driven by his own searing scrutiny. The article is reporting findings from the US National Snow and Ice Data Center.
This quote from Anthony’s copy-and-paste of the Guardian article would be enlightening if he paused to reflect (italics mine):
Ice blown out of the region by Arctic winds can explain around one-third of the steep downward trend in sea ice extent in the region since 1979.
What’s up with the other two-thirds, eh? I guess as long as Anthony can include the word “doubt” he thinks his job is done.
