In order to understand the magnitude of the NSIDC disappearing ice scandal, you have to understand how the ice age is evaluated.
The ice age is determined by tracking individual ice flows from week to week. In the case of the disappearing five year old ice, they had been tracking it every week for five years – and then suddenly claimed that it never existed. It defies credibility.
The animation below shows the ice going backwards in time to 2012. It takes a lot of “special science” to disappear ice they have been tracking for more than 250 weeks.
Just one more massive climate fraud from the team.
