Mark Serreze calls me “breathtakingly ignorant.”
The red circle shows the year when NSIDC starts their Arctic sea ice graphs. The mother of all cherry picks.
Mark Serreze is a brilliant scientist, just look at the amazing prediction he made about Arctic sea ice. Surely we are, indeed, “breathtakingly ignorant” to doubt his Arctic Omniscience
Self-admiration is a common pitfall among “brilliant scientists.”
Basic requirements for real science are humility, honesty and open- mindedness.
Their response: There were no Satellites before then (they are correct for the 40s). But they still suffer from lack of data.
There were satellites measuring Arctic sea ice going back to the 1960s, and NSIDC is well aware of them.
Ignore the losers. You’re brilliant Steve. Keep up the good work.
There was something in the water.
“Scientists from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) and NASA who resurrected 50-year-old satellite images of Arctic and Antarctic sea ice from dusty 35-millimeter film reels took home first prize in an international geoscience data rescue contest sponsored by publisher Elsevier and the Integrated Earth Data Applications project at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory.”
BINGO! Just the harpoon I need! Thanks Jimbo!
Is that film safe in their hands? Is there a ‘book burning’ about to take place? Looks like foxes are in possession of the hen house to me.
Such a breathtakingly bad use of intellect on his part. It needs to be taken away and given to somebody who will use it more wisely. Then he can be allowed to sit and drool on himself in peace.
i just spat coffee all over my keyboard reading that 🙂
Ah, climate McScience!
Cherry pick a section of a clearly periodic function, extrapolate a linear regression to Armageddon, and run round like headless chickens frothing and gibbering about how we can olly be saved if we give them all our money!
I dare say Mr Serreze is welcome to stroll over here and defend his predictions should he choose…
Steve, you really are one heck of a great guy! Love your work, keep pickin’ ’em apart.
It’s the Arctic where we ought to see the first signs of global cooling.
Mark knows what he’s doing; and it is criminal. He is normalizing the data to get the answer he wants and to support the story he wants to tell.
Myopic science; practicing ‘science’ for short term, for political goals … Mark has neither the scientific length nor breadth and certainly not the ‘freedom’ (verily, he is now trapped in a system, a culture, of his and his compatriots own making) to seek the ‘trvth’.
Revealing any kind of ‘Trvth’ in his case would mean political suicide and professional death; can’t have that, daddy likes wearing his pony tail on campus …
Where does NSIDC’s Greenland melt data pre-1990 come from? I suggest that DMI uses 1990-2011 for their mean because that’s all the data they’ve got. Has NSIDC made up some ‘data’ for the 80’s?
Steve, a “clueless, socialist, trough feeding, academic buffoon” is calling YOU names? How “breathtakingly ignorant”……
<chuckle> .. good call …
As Homer would say when cherry-picking the juicy ones –
Or as Mark Serreze says “Ummm, low temperatures..”
