NSIDC rushed a bogus press release out claiming a record low Arctic maximum – which the press amplified with their usual lies.
The press in turn did their usual trick, and made the story into a big propaganda lie – saying the ice was “shrinking” at -30C.
The ice is surging past 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2011. The propaganda is out, and will not ever be corrected. Standard practice.
