The Death Spiral of Science By NSIDC

NSIDC has corrupted climate science with graphs like these, purported to show a linear decline in Arctic sea ice since 1979.

Their choice of 1979 as a start point, hides the fact that Arctic ice is cyclical, not linear. The 1990 IPCC report showed that sea ice extent was two million km² smaller in 1974 than it was in 1979.

The New York Times reported another large increase in ice prior to 1971.

There was plenty of satellite data available before 1979. NSIDC could get the data right up the road at NCAR.

Arctic sea ice thickness was the same in 1940 as it is now.

By starting their plots in 1979, NSIDC is defrauding the public. We went to the moon in 1969 – human intelligence did not begin in 1979.

    Yep, there is considerable evidence to suggest the Arctic sea ice rebounds with vigorous leaps, gains and reduces in extent – over the centuries past. Sea ice extent – it’s bloody cold up there and for a while – bloody dark too. Other than that , its causation is complex and probably [mainly] influenced by the Arctic oscillation. But it also true to remark that, there is no real correlation [any whatsoever] with man’s input of CO², probably the solar influence heat and solar wind, cloud formation, salinity, Atlantic conveyor, winds and other variables means – we don’t know enough to be sure of much at all.

    And anyway, a bit of sea ice here and there, what’s the problem – the annual sea ice average is pretty much in – rude health.

    Come on Mark – fess up and change a habit of a lifetime – be honest for once.
