It was your U of I boyz quote that started the "name calling", so by your "rules", you lost long ago. "The rest of Taylor’s article is just whitewash intended to distract readers from these facts." So they say he's intentionally lying, but he actually clearly stated his points. It is the lack of accounting for the 30 years of cooling prior to the 1979 data that is dishonest. Here is…

I think you're right, and my description was an over simplified description of why they come up with different values: http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/faq/ Area measurements treat the data cells differently than extent measurements treat the data cells. If it's 15% ice, the cell does not count toward extent, but Area…

I thought the extent measurements were pixelated results with at least 10% ice coverage so includes holes. That's my understanding of it from what I read. Measuring different things would make sense. But the difference doesn't help bolster the case that "all the science agrees" when it obviously doesn't.

But when you find that their logic and science is wrong, and they are intentionally misleading the public----and you learn they are paid $80,000 to do so by an organization highly dependent on funding from the fossil fuel industry, it should infuriate the average person. In the same way that they trashed medical science and trotted out a bunch of pseudoscience to protect big tobacco (donors). That…

Tornado touches down near Hannibal

The National Weather Service confirmed that a tornado touched down near Hannibal, Mo. Monday night, but straight-line winds caused most of Monday night's damage to the town.

Hannibal Board of Public Works's Director of Communications Cindy Livesay says 45 to 50% of Hannibal residents are still without power. 

Crews are working around the clock and Livesay said Hannibal has called in help from other communities.

She added there are still several power lines down as well.

"The best thing for people to do is to completely stay away from those.  We do have crews responding to those as they come in," said Livesay. "The problem is that the more we get out and survey the area, the more of that damage we're finding."

Livesay said there's no time estimate as to when power may be restored completely at this time. 

Several Hannibal parks were damaged last night as well. 

Assistant Supervisor for the Hannibal Parks and Recreation Department Mary Lynn Richards said they're going to lose a lot of trees.

"It looks like a war zone.  All these beautiful trees down, and the roads are impassable," said Richards. "But I went through and every shelter, bathroom and playground is ok."

As of Monday:

The Hannibal Police Department is without power. HPD requested that people stay in their homes and restrict driving. Center. Roads are nearly impassible in downtown Hannibal. Numerous traffic crashes were reported.

The storm snapped tree limbs filling roadways with debris. There are reports of numerous downed power lines and several gas leaks within the city.

Emergency officials are calling on emergency crews from neighboring counties for assistance.

NWS said the tornado was located “near Hannibal” at 7:45 p.m. and headed northeast at 45 mph. It also produced ping pong ball-sized hail.

Hannibal Public Schools canceled classes for Tuesday because of the number of trees down throughout the community.
