    He doesn't seem to realize that for long periods of time in the Early Holocene up to the MWP that there were a lot of summers with little to no ice in it, yet the Polar Bears are here and the world went on without any terrible repercussions from it.

    Ye Gods and little fishes. Such dumbfuckery on your part. Yes, the decline stopped in 1986, because it was higher than 1982. And the decline stopped in 1993, because the ice was higher than in 1990. And so on. The fact that you even tried to make that argument is an indication of a very stupid liar.

    Here, Billy Bob and WUWT can't figure out the difference between "ice" and "ground". A Russian ship _grounded_, and Billy is shrieking they're trapped in ice.

    Agreed. Each time you think deniers can't possible get any dumber, they surprise you.

    You apparently haven't, because you can't post their actual figures.

    So, you're sticking with "BECAUSE I SAY SO!". At least you're consistent.

    As cherrypicking fallacies go, that's really dumb. The trend is unmistakable. You're pretending you can't recognize a very obvious trend. As nobody is actually stupid enough to fail to see the trend, those who do pretend not to see it see it come across as dishonest.

    And as we go back further, any sign of your magic 60-year cycles is completely absent, meaning your theory fails hard.

    If your theory was valid, the "cycles" would have consisted of more than one single up-and-down. They don't. Your theory is just cherrypicking and mathturbation. Nearly any data set will show an up and down somewhere, but that doesn't mean it's part of an ongoing cycle.

    The ice expanse in the Arctic is increasing. Plain as the nose on your face. End of story.

    In the words of the soup nazi.... "No Northwest passage for you"

    It is now almost totally ice locked...

    [​IMG]

    And it appears like were very close to bottoming out as ice area melt has all but stopped and the ice is building again..

    Bwahahahahahahaha!!!

    No I didn't lie since YOU just pointed out other small trends while ignoring my correct statement as I made abundantly clear in post 28, when I expanded the chart.

    Here is what I wrote then,

    "You have TERRIBLE eyes since it is OBVIOUS that the decline stopped in 2009, as shown in the EXPANDED version of your chart:"

    Here is another chart with just the time frame from 2007 onward:

    and this based on Masie and SII data:
