No Andrew, the Arctic is still melting.

Professor David Karoly (one of Australia’s esteemed ARC Federation Fellows) wrote to several of us recently in frustration over the recent misinformation in the Courier Mail and on Andrew Bolt’s blog. As usual, Andrew and the News Ltd papers have cherry-picked their way through the truth. Here is what David wrote:

“I don’t like responding to all, and saturating others’ email inboxes, but the misinformation in John’s emails and the Andrew Bolt’s blog is as bad as ever.

Yes, there is more ice in winter than in summer (no surprise).
The long term trend of decreasing Artic sea ice amounts in winter and in summer, as described in the Wilkinson documentary, is continuing (see image below from NSIDC).”

Enough said. The data speak for themselves.
