The state of mind of your post is what I call "defense mode", which makes even legit views kind of emotional and with a tendency to exaggeration.

The state of mind of your post is what I call “attack mode”, which makes event legit views kind of aggressive and with a tendency to mysogeny. Please don’t take this personally :)

This sums up your post nicely, I think. Not personal though...

The science no longer represents the actuality of events

Surprised to read this here. I do take encouragement from the numbers this year - despite a serious assault from adverse weather and eight years more global warming, the ice has been resilient enough to stay above the 2012 minimum.

To me, this demonstrates the extraordinary amount of energy needed to melt ice and suggests a BOA is decades, not years away... and I don’t expect to be abandoning science any time soon

Gero, that’s awful news. I’d like to contribute, too. It would be a small price to pay for my daily numbers fix!

I think I will read posts in future and not write.

Please don’t stop posting - I for one like to read comments from people who don’t need shouting in caps and expletives to communicate...

I voted 1 because the 2012 record is getting old in terms of climate dominoes. I’m also impressed that in terms of decadel averages 2020 looks to be falling just where the 2020s should. Lastly, after watching 2007 and 2012, I am getting old and want to see something happen which just might spur some positive change...

The barrier is closed in response to the threat of tidal flooding or fluvial flooding in almost equal proportions. Sea level is rising and rainfall events are becoming more extreme.

What is extremely misleading is posting flood risks due to rivers overflowing, and claiming that it is due to sea level rise.

As I live next to the Thames, I’ll be sure to distinguish between sea water and river water when the inundation comes. In the interim, I’ll continue to lose sleep over a combination of the two...

An average melt won’t break records - just like an average 2012 wouldn’t have from here. It takes something exceptional to break records - with seven years of additional CO2 and heat, that something may not need to be quite as exceptional as 2012 - but still exceptional, IMO.

My issue with the way the data is presented is that it is somewhat dissonant with the interests of the customer base.

Not in my case, it isn’t.

The next 11 years will not be very different from the past 11 years, IMO. We may see a year as bad as 2012 in the Arctic... but really big changes need more time, I think

Given it is unfortunately going to happen, I’d like to see it. I’ll be a deceased observer by 2070, so perhaps you could forgive a little impatience :)

Daily watering got to be quite a chore. But the crop was very rewarding indeed - made up for the devastation caused by the box hedge caterpillar this year and the bare earth where the lawns used to be. Was worried at one point the younger trees in the area might be drought affected but they seem to have come through OK.
