    Look at the minimum for this years arctic ice. Almost as low as 2007, and still declining.

    Now look at the global sea ice area, note the right hand side of the graph. See how much time the ice area is below the zero line since 2003.

    And here is the present line of the Arctic Ice area

    Still trending down. Another week of no uptrend, and we may well see another low for the Arctic Ice Melt.

    Here is the trend line from AMSR-E. As you can see we are ABOVE the trend for 2007 and 2008 and slightly below that for 2009.

    I believe that is very local warming.

    Of course, a nice diversion from a lost arguement on your part.

    Watt's up with your brain, Oddie? Watt is a jerk that has no degree, and lies with facility.

    Look at the graphs that I posted links to. Yes, the ice had more volume and area in May10 than in May08. However, right now, it is at or lower than the 2008 minimum. So we had a fast melt since May. As in the Arctic is significantly warmer now than it was in 2008.
