Freedman on Arctic ice: 'That is like losing an area of ice the size of the state of Virginia on a daily basis.
Rebuttal: 'I assume he is referring to the fact that Arctic ice extent is the highest at the end of July since 2006.'Ice melting during summer? Who would have thought it. Meanwhile the Antarctic sea ice is grew during July by 2.6 million sq km, which equals 83000 sq miles a day. Assuming the moron has got his numbers right, I make that two Virginias a day. Seriously, if “an organisation of leading scientists” have to resort to such misleading propaganda as this, they have big problems! Unsurprisingly, it seems Heidi Cullen has bought into this as well. No surprise there then.'
