“Sea Ice News – Call for Arctic sea-ice forecasts, plus forecast poll“ (May 19, 2011). Pull the other one, Anthony Watts! I almost shot tea out of my nose reading Anthony’s blithe claim:
It has been awhile since I’ve done a sea-ice report. That said, not much of note has been going on in the sea-ice arena, we are in that time of year when all of the years converge into a tighter grouping.
I guess his stalwart bobble-heads were starting to need reassurance that Global Warming was still over. Unfortunately there are a few differing opinions out there:
- Neven’s Arctic Sea Ice Blog – SIE update 6: unperturbed
“What could be labeled as a lack of spectacle is the fact that the sea ice extent decrease has been incredibly steady.”
- Climate Progress – Arctic sea ice volume: The death spiral continues – One-year-old ice in Beaufort Sea now a foot thinner than in 2009
Anthony even thought he could bluff his way past his own chart. Nice try. He does try to bury it among a busy collection of eye-glazing squiggles and bar charts.
