The video I posted is from a major US university and contains the views of many leading scientists who study the Arctic.
And yours is by an anonymous nobody on the internet.
And you think that one is as valid as the other?
The data was from the National Snow and Ice Data Center.

But I understand your point... warmists love credentials.

If global warming is real, I want to see politicians go to the poles during winter. When I see video of them sunbathing under the ozone hole on the North Pole in December, I'll believe. Did you know global warming's most significant effects happen deep under the seas, high in the atmosphere and at the poles? Or the effects are more significant at night, while you're sleeping.
Wake up.
What a great observation.
Yes! Now that you mention it....
Global warming is decried for being primarily in unpopulated locations such as ...'possibly deep in the ocean','high in the atmosphere', and 'way up at the 'North Pole'.

How do we stop you remaining climate blame believers from telling our kids it "WILL BE" a crisis when science has agreed on nothing beyond just COULD BE a crisis and not one IPCC warning says; "inevitable" or "eventual". Science has not said it will so you can't either, although the kids are laughing now at this Reefer Madness of climate blame.

Climate scientists know that very different things are happening to Arctic and Antarctic sea ice.

Deniers like to confound to two because the result looks like an excuse for denial.

"motheaten" loves cherries, even in cold weather.

"motheaten" has many records yet to set to catch up with high temperature records in the next year. Its surprising, since toxic topix AGW deniers have been saying 2013 was cold & is sending Earth back into an ice age....... or its NOT surprising, since toxic topix AGW deniers have no science or mathematics.

"motheaten" doesn't say nothin' about hi-low temperature records & then springs the last seven day period of low temperature records that DON'T number 1000. In answer, I show, including the period "motheaten" publishes, the last year's 32,000+ hi temperature records, out-numbering low temperature records by 5 to 1. Yes, that is a good defense of AGW.

What isn't a good defense of toxic topix AGW denier evidence, is "motheaten", seeing the same data I used, did NOT present full data, first hand. It shows "motheaten" to be a toxic topix AGW denier & cherry-picker, wishing to deny AGW science.

"motheaten" knew that hi temperature records out-weighed cold temperature records, because this information has been presented over & over again on these toxic topix pages. But "motheaten" found a weeks worth of low-temperature records to toot & tote.

Presently, the "motheaten" seven days of tootin' & totin' records, got caught in error in the first day. & now "motheaten" is tootin' a sour tune & totin' a heavy burden of error.

As for your defense of "motheaten" & his bitter toxic topix pills, your defense is no defense at all...... just a poor sick toxic topix AGW denier case of "flapjaw".

+++++++GOD NOW APPROVES OF SAME-SEX-MARRIAGE!!!+++++++ God has changed his mind regarding Homosexuality!. God can change His mind on matters if He wants to, there are instances in the Bible where God does just that!. This time is no different. God has certainly been answering the big Gays prayers lately!, with their recent Supreme Court victories and all. God wouldn't answer me, a Straight guy!. You know, I once asked God for a wife, 5 months later, He gave me a wh**e!. I do admit, I did used to blaspheme God a couple years on down before this, but I stopped this. I figured this was the reason God raped me. If God didn't want to give me a wife, He sure as Hell didn't have to give me that rotten wh**e!!!. Because God bestowed this evil upon me, my blaspheming Him returned with a vengence!!!. I lay it on old God now and I don't care if I do go burn forever, HAHAHAHAHA!!!. I blaspheme God real good now. I do it more then I ever did and I am a might proud of that fact, HAHAHAHAHA!!!...GIVE ME ANOTHER WH**E GOD!!!!!!!!!.

Litesong is a useful idiot for the cause.

He's tolerated, never challenged but given an occasional pat on the head and cookie cuz... well, hmmmm... cuz warmists are terrified that any chink in their armor will rust it out.

That's my guess. I mean... they always say it's about the "science" don't they? They climb up on their haughty pedestals of "knowledge" and browbeat the "uneducated", but for litesong's goofball nonsense?

<crickets>

Where is their integrity? Their critical analysis for 'one of their own'?

Notice... warmists don't criticize other warmists. As we saw with Climategate, their MO when challenged was to circle the wagons to defend every 'scientist' down to the last email.

(Reuters)- An internationally agreed target to limit rises in global average temperatures to within 2 degrees Celsius is around double the threshold that would avoid catastrophic climate change, a study by 18 eminent scientists said.

A study published in U.S.-based scientific journal PLOS One on Tuesday said the 2 degree limit was too high and a more appropriate target was around 1 degree C.

"An appropriate target is to keep global temperature within or close to the temperature range in the Holocene - the interglacial period in which civilization developed," they said.

The full study is available at: www.plosone.org/

WASHINGTON -- Climatic changes -- and the results of those changes -- could occur within decades or even sooner, and they are becoming a greater concern for scientists, according to a new paper from the National Academy of Sciences.

"The most challenging changes are the abrupt ones," said James White, a professor of geological sciences at the University of Colorado in Boulder and chair of the report committee. White and several coauthors of the paper spoke at a press conference Tuesday morning.

The paper focuses on those impacts due to climate change that can happen most quickly. Among these are the rapid decline in Arctic sea ice that scientists have seen in the last decade and increased extinction pressure on plants and animals caused by the rapidly warming climate.

Many such changes, according to Tony Barnosky, a professor in the Department of Integrative Biology at the University of California, Berkeley, are "things that people in this room will be around to see." He emphasized that scientists are "really worried about what's going to happen in the next several years or decades."

"The planet is going to be warmer than most species living on Earth today have seen it, including humans," said Barnosky. "The pace of change is orders of magnitude higher than what species have experienced in the last tens of millions of years."
