"Steven Goddard": Arctic ice area is at a ten year high for the date, and has blown away the previous record for ice growth by more than half a million km^2.Heh. How stupid does "Goddard" think we are?Let's track the data back. "Goddard" links to data posted on a website known as The Cryosphere Today, published by the University of Champagne-Urbana:arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/Those data are shown for 1980-2013 in several graphs at the top of the page. For instance:arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.anomaly.arcti...I dunno what you see, but I see the well-documented fall in arctic sea ice. You see something different?Another chart based on the same dataset is interactive:arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/arctic.sea.ice.interactive....Here it is immediately clear how the seasonal oscillation has been playing out over the past 33 years. I guess "Goddard" did not want us looking at that chart.What we have here is another soulful rendition of How To Lie With Statistics, as sung by "Steven Goddard". And on the flip side of the album we find his interpretation of that always-popular tune, There's A Sucker Born Every Minute. (Set to the inimitable music of Die Verdammte Spielerei -- www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qs_w6bGElOY)<apologies to Elan>Loren
