No NYTimes, Arctic ice is not ‘vanishing’

Here’s the fake news headline:

Here’s the reality:

According to NOAA, Northern Hemisphere sea ice has declined somewhat since 1980, but it certainly is not “vanishing”:

And when you consider that NOAA has a pre-1980 sea ice record, you might reasonably wonder what all the fuss us about.

That’s why the @NYTimes is called “fake news.”

      What about the idiots from the English university that tried to row across the Acrtic and the morons from the US that started off from Alaska and got stuck before they reached the Bering Strait.
      And to top them all, Chris Turney of Sydney University and his ship of fools, and the icebreakers that got stuck trying to rescue him and the cretins that accompanied him.

    There are three important concepts demonstrated here. One, is no matter how thoroughly an item supporting the alarmist cause has been discredited, they will continue to use it. I continue to read articles advocating the warmest view point that we must cut emissions to avoid increasing hurricanes, droughts, and other extreme weather events. Yet, even the IPCC has stated these do not appear to be increasing. With the claim of disappearing sea ice, the same is happening.

    Second, the so called scientists always pick a maximum or minimum as their base line depending on which serves their purpose. With sea ice, the maximum of 1980 was selected. With ocean acidification, the maximum pH of 1988 was selected. These examples are part of a much larger picture of the entire climate change crisis being artificially manufactured.

    The third concept, no matter how inaccurate the claim, the liberal press will assume it is fact and sensationalize it.

    Cherry – picking baselines and then plotting data on compressed graphs for dramatic effect is their favorite low-down tactic. David, you give the liberal press too much credit, they don’t care if it is fact or fake as long as it’s sensational .
