Damn you! Just when you've pissed me off the most, you have to go and make me laugh. It's hard to keep a good hate going when you're laughing. But you do know that you are an asshole don't you?
Excellent news, humor being the only thing left to live for now that the commies have taken over, I feel validated in my existence now! Not sure why you need to make sure I'm self aware though...
Btw, you're down to a sane third of the country now.
Going to the source of Watts data (the NSIDC) and grabbing a chart that Watts didn't bother to show seems a bit more illustrative.
Your source is obviously an April fools joke!
I fail to see how the ice extent being in decline over the last thirty years is an invalidation of the post. The March ice extent is indeed of average proportions, and those idiot scientists did indeed say it would, conservatively, all be gone by 2013. It's yet another unfounded, alarmist statement by scientists that fails to hold water. Since it's called ice when solidified.
They've been foaming at the mouth over this stuff for years now, and the change in extent is only a few percentage points three years from the apocalypse. Sort of like how we're all going to drown when the sea level rises 20 feet, and yet we're still a few feet down from relatively recent sea levels from just a few hundred years ago.
