It seems the sea ice propagandists are wrong yet again. olfraud and Chris are constantly harping about the Arctic being ice free and yet here we are enough ice to cover 11,000 Manhattans. The freeze occured earlier (Gee who was it that predicted that?) and more comprehensivly than ever recorded! That's a poke at Chris But it was the fastest since records have been kept which is on the order of 30-35 years so in the overall scheme of things it doesn't really mean anything. As you can see in the graph below the sea ice is rising quickly.
