Based on the best available estimates, which could be better but the satellite broke, the Arctic Sea Ice is melting this year at an unprecedented rate.
It is almost like the Earth is warming up or something.
Satellite broke?? Which one? Details?
The satellite broke 2 months ago.
was this the issue that totally confused the denialist - and sent them into a whirlwind of conspiracy ideation
thanks for the link - good summary
once again the "sceptics" demonstrating their collective lack of scepticism
I do read your blog btw and keep up the good work combating these immature delusional lunatics
That ice was already reading low greatly subdued the conspiracy ideation. Imagine If the satellite had broken when Arctic sea ice was much higher than normal...
“Nuuk, Greenland’s capital, soared to 75 degrees (24 Celsius*) Thursday, marking the warmest temperature ever recorded in the Arctic country during June.”
According to DMI the new record is even higher:
“Grønland fik torsdag en ny varmerekord for juni. Den nye rekord lyder på 24,7°C og er sat ved lufthavnen i Nuuk.”
Your link doesn't mention the original source and doesn't give credit to the author, Andy Borowitz, who writes short, satirical pieces for The New Yorker. The original is here:
An index of his work is available here:
Some of it is exceptionally good.

Wish it were so but not sure about the singular form of the denialist here - or the issue for that matter! Or were you referring to a specific one?
Sadly there's a lot of Denialists out there who as their comments quickly show are very confused (or something!) about a lot of issues!
D'oh! Sorry, blockquote fail. First line is meant to be a quote. The rest is mine.
