If you can be intellectually honst about the subject (or me), you will see that I did not dismiss your posted satellite photo.
You did a pretty good impression of someone doing so here:
Can you say with absolute authority that the photos are the real deal? I certainly cannot say that with any authority nor can I say that they are not.
You don't dismiss them as false, you dismiss them as not authoritative enough.
However, it is not true that no other photos, claimed to be satellite photos, do not show something different, such as this one:
I didn't say anything about photos that are "claimed" to be satellite photos.
If you are so concerned these are fake just go to the source. NASA even has a nice animation for this going back to 1979,
What is this supposed to be showing? And what is it supposed to be refuting? Are you googling randomly now? This guy is taking on the notion that the whole sea is melting. It's not even an argument against the same thing.
Sigh, I guess going to the source isn't even good enough. That image is from 2007 Foxfyre, not
Yeah, last year was a little different Foxfyre. Were you making the claim that past images might not look like the current ones?
<article about ice minimums snipped>
This thread isn't about breaking the total ice minimum, it's about simultaneous opening of the passages which has never happened before. It would be helpful if you are talking about the same thing. You know, apples and apples and all.
The simultaneous opening of these passages is a first in human history. That's what the thread is about, not whether or not global warming is real, what the minimum will be this year and all.
It is about a simple fact Foxfyre: the Arctic can be circumnavigated for the first time in recorded human history.
So if you want to cast doubt on that do so, but digging up unrelated photos from last year, or talking about what the total melt will be does nothing to discredit it.
So who is being unreasonable here? Me who doesn't claim to know but wants to know what's happening? Or you who seems to be accusing me of blindly dismissing evidence?
You of course, you don't seem to understand the difference between 2007 and 2008, and have spent all this time without discrediting the topic subject at all in any way.
Way to jerk that knee though!
