Last year I wrote a piece on WUWT explaining that Antarctic ice doesn’t melt at -30C, and that University of Texas claims of East Antarctic ice loss were just plain daft. John Cook then wrote up a three part “rebuttal” which managed to completely avoid any of the issues I raised.
It now looks like NASA has also realized that ice doesn’t melt at -30C.

A new reanalysis by two NASA scientists of the three standard ice-monitoring techniques slashes the estimated loss from East Antarctica, challenging the large, headline-grabbing losses reported lately for the continent as a whole.
