    Remember when our friendly flat-earth climate change denialists repeatedly cited some study allegedly from the University of Illinois Arctic Climate center, that supposedly showed the extent of sea ice is the now the same now as it was in 1979? I was always suspicious of that because there was never a credible link to back it up. All we got was some link from some site that is infamous for spreading rightwing disinformation.

    Well, George Will wrote a column using this rightwing talking point, and the University of Illinois says he's full of crap. There is no University of Illinois study showing sea ice rebounded to 1979 levels.

    The flat earth society just made up that story out of whole cloth.

    LOL, rupert murdoch?


    Meh, Will wrote an editorial with an obvious fabrication. The fact that will hasn't corrected the record shows that he - and most of the other flat earthers - don't care about the science. They are propagandists.

    awesome! :lol::lol:

    Isn't that what sarah palin believed, that dinosaurs roamed the planet with humans?

    The right wing: they'd be cute if they weren't so dangerous for the rest of us!

    I'll give this a 2 out of 10 for diversion attempt.


    Your flat earth buddies have spent the past month saying that the University of Illinois allegedly reported that sea ice is the same now as it was in 1979.

    The University of Illinois has put out a public statement that that's not true, and they have no idea where flat earthers came up with that.

    It was fabricated. And I predict not a single flat earther will appear in this thread to admit they were pushing a fabrication for the last month.

    so the ice measuring folks didn't have a faulty sensor in their equipment....

    interesting i could have sworn this happened.....

    Yes, they did have an equipment failure. And immediatly upon realizing it, published that that was the case. Unlike you wingnuts that just continue to state the same lies even when they have been proven to be a lie. An equipment failure is a far differant matter than deliberate lies.
