jduff Posted October 6, 2013 Share Posted October 6, 2013 Thanks for pointing out the exact date (27 Aug) when it got too icy to pass through. Up till then it was Summer and you could sail there. Which is what I said. So it's hardly misrepresentation- hype perhaps, since it's not quite the pole.. Of course, the details of when you can sail how far North will depend on the weather. The point remains that there's less ice than there used to be. I am very happy to point that out. Why? Because you stated Summer. Which lasts til Sept 21st. August which is on average the hottest month of the year in the Northern Hemisphere is a part of Summer. August 27th the date of that article is still summer. Please do not cherry pick. Just like you tried to cherry pick what was actually said in the original article. While the arctic is still recovering from previous years of ice loss the Antarctic is breaking all time records. To help you understand, since you had to use sailing as a way to attempt a point(worthless). Here is the fullest and latest data on ice loss and ice extent. http://nsidc.org/arcticseaicenews/ Next time I would learn to do some data mining before actually trying to prove a point! Especially if you do not know what you really are talking about! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
