Goddard is a man who is not hard to impress, but is obviously in denial. He proudly claims a new record for Ice Extent with the following image from NORSEX;
But the irony is that he claims a 'New Record' by only looking at the years from 2007, the real record of the lowest extent ever recorded, and completely ignores how it is below the recognised average indicated by the blue dots.
Now to start preaching about a 'New Record' just a bit below average takes some belief, but I'm sure his loyal following will act suitably impressed.
If a high point in just the last six years warrants a post just how short a time frame can he go? It seems he is capable of keeping this nonsense up indefinitely.
