STAGGERING GROWTH IN ARCTIC ICE. COLD WEATHER LEADS TO WINTER ARCTIC ICE GROWTH. TRAJECTORY DEFIES CLIMATE MODELS THAT PREDICT LESS ICE OVER TIME NOT MORE.
ICE AGE BY SEPTEMBER? MEDIA BLACKOUT
From the I-Told-You-So files* comes this important piece of news. Thanks to Steven Goddard for the heads up.
Something tells me we won't be hearing about this in the media or in any of Obama's speeches.
Another thing I noticed:
This appears very much to be a menu button. Let me explain to you how these work. A menu button is a piece of technology designed to always display a menu when they are clicked on. But if you click on the University of Illinois menu button in the above image no menu appears. Go on, try moving your mouse over it and clicking, it does nothing except making the image larger.
Software engineers are not like climate scientists, they have to make sure the computer programs they write work all the time, every time, and so they learn to never make mistakes. So I have to assume that someone at the University of Illinois has deliberately sabotaged the menu button. I wonder why.
What could be on the hidden menu?
Perhaps the menu contains links to scientist's emails which They don't want made public. Perhaps there is an option to display the real undoctored sea ice data that are being hidden from us. Or perhaps the button is just another one of Lewandowsky's little traps to try and falsely paint us as conspiracy theorists. Yes I can well imagine Stephan Lewandowsky meeting with suited UN figures at the Paris COP21 in a closed meeting room, discussing a demented form of button over taxpayer funded mugs of hot coffee. A button that can be deployed onto websites that will capture not only the imagination of climate skeptics, but also their IP addresses which are subsequently loaded into a database named agenda21.
Someone more proficient at being unethical than me should probably try to hack that button and find out what is behind it.
If not I sense an FOIA request in the making.
*These are actual files I keep in my house, in a large binder.
Update: A commenter, now banned, has kindly pointed out that a button in a copied image from a website isn't necessarily going to work when copied onto a blog. While this may potentially explain why the menu button doesn't work, I stand by my comments and the general thrust of my argument remains. I would think the University of Illinois should really put a disclaimer on their website pointing out that buttons will not work when an image is taken. This kind of lack of attention to detail is becoming a hallmark of climate science.
