Skeptics say it undermines the significance of the much-publicized sea ice loss in the Arctic, where minimum summer sea ice extent has decreased by 30% since the late 1970s. And when a study released last month suggested that Antarctic sea ice growth may have been overstated because of a data calibration error, naysayers called it a brazen attempt by scientists to sweep an inconvenient fact under the rug.
But these critiques oversimplify the science of climate change, Maksym said.
Sea ice is a case in point, he said: "Ironically, one of the possible reasons to get more ice is warming."

Oh! And speaking of "calibration error", I meant to include this little tidbit. Add up all the little tidbits of hoaxing, and you get yourself a gluttonous meal!
