Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2019 melting season

The scientific people can have their own place as well then

Like in the good old days you mean, when the "melting season" discussion sometimes turned to scientific journal articles?

Summer sea-ice cover can recover quickly in models when the climate cools into the following winter, because thin ice grows more rapidly (Notz 2009), and with diminished icecover, excess heat is more rapidly transferred to the atmosphere and radiated to space (Tietsche et al. 2011) (both are negative feedbacks). However, if cloud cover increases after summer sea-ice loss, then this could act as an insulating blanket in autumn–winter restricting sea-ice recovery (positive feedback) and potentially creating multiple stable states (Abbot et al. 2011).

Be careful with answering Jim Hunt, you seem a candid poster and he's the worst troll if he wants to.
He sure is. He's never ever once replied to one of my messages, other than to complain. If you write over 4000 messages, and people like less than 200 of them, maybe it's a sign...

Jim Hunt is one of the top contributors here. I learn a great deal from his posts, far more than I learn from your daily postings of weather gifs. And this site is about sharing real insight into AGW, not getting likes.

Make them a size so they don't autoload.

Apparently you can't for MP4 files. Perhaps this conversation could be continued over on the topic set up for the purpose on July 8th by blumenkraft?

"GIF size, your Internet, and what is usable?"

Apart from this one?

Absolutely!

Did it ever occur to you that the majority of those 4000+ messages were written before the "like" feature was added to the forum software?

There aren't many people like you that give more likes then they get... I don't get it... Likes are free to give, so why is everyone so stingy with them?

Since Freegrass mentioned it, i want to make a general note:

Currency is speech. This forum gives everyone free currency in the form of Likes. Why not use your freedom of speech?
Yes, but I personally am a bit slow in pushing the like button. There are many messages that I like and I forget to “Like”. I guess if comes with my “baby-boomer” condition, which has great things and not-so-great, some users find an abhorrent age like TeaPotty. Poor baby.
 Anyway not used to appreciate like buttons and similar. Even with emoticons. Hope you don’t harshly judge me for that :)
Ps. By the way, I did this message as likable as possible, but probably won’t grant me too many “likes”.
