As most of you are aware, Arctic sea ice has shrunk dramatically over the last several decades, because of man-made global warming.
This year it has broken the records for lowest area, lowest extent, and lowest volume.
Perhaps more to the point, those records were broken not by a little — not even by a modest amount — the were broken by a helluva lot. Yes, a hell of a lot.
The loss of Arctic sea ice has been nothing short of astounding.
How have the fake skeptics of global warming responded? By changing the subject, of course.
Perhaps the most ridiculous example (by which I mean, worthy of ridicule) is on hcubed’s blunderblog. And what does he change the subject to? This:
Antarctic sea ice set another record this past week, with the most amount of ice ever recorded on day 256 of the calendar year (September 12 of this leap year).
Wow! Stop the presses! Extra!!! Extra!!! Read all about it!!! Antarctic sea ice reaches record high for this day of the year!
What a shame for that poor, poor, unimpressive Arctic sea ice.
All it managed to do this year was set the record for lowest sea ice extent for a single day of the year for every day since July 28th.
Yes, that’s the last few days of July, the entire month of August, and the entire month of September — so far. All it did was break the all-time record. All it was able to do this year was go below the pre-2012 all-time record 26 times — so far.
Yeah. The previous paragraph is sarcasm.
