TIA BS: Where's the Global Warming (1541* d) RE: BS: Where's the Global Warming 06 Apr 10

Sawzaw (th poster child for Dunning-Kroger) says:
"Dear KP. I was wrong.

The 1979-2000 mean is 15.6 million square kilometers.

The ice area is currently 15.44 million square kilometers,

1% below average."

Well cherry-picked old fellow! What really happened was a steady decline of 2.6% per decade (in March ice extent) since 1979, then in April, there was this highly unusual, brief event that brought the extent up to within a few percent of the 1979-2000 average (not above, or even equal to the average, still below). And this brief event is evidence that the extent of seasonal Arctic Sea ice is *not* generally decreasing.

Now get back to twisting, selecting, and misunderstanding the numbers. I will get back to educating the next generation to see through this kind of crap.
