qfingers - Updated NASA Data: Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJourna
Since ice volume is a calculated value of a model and absolutely impossible to ever verify (with today's technology) you will NEVER convince me to trust an answer from it. With that being said their model looks very much like the real data. Decline which might be recovering now (only time will tell).

1979 is selected in these types of charts because that's when we first had a satellite in orbit that could provide us with much more accurate data.

"The rest of Taylor’s article is just whitewash intended to distract readers from these facts." So these guys are mind readers, not scientists? They can read his intent? Or they are using personal attacks when they don't have facts on their side? I think the U of I boyz are the ones spinning here. Taylor notes this short time range ... readings from 1979 are not "long term" when it…

Al Gore is an idiot. There's no denying that. For the record, I bet Taylor understands the data just fine. That's how he knows where to cherry-pick.
