Sending a PM requesting permission to do so would probably work ..

Arctic sea ice / Re: The 2018 melting season
« on: June 25, 2018, 07:36:59 AM »
Actually .. I would call this slow start, a nice start to the melting season..

Having also chosen March 17th , do I get to share the trophy with Neven ? .. b.c.  :)

Sure, and there's a third person as well. 0/3=0.  ;)

The 2018 melting season thread is now open for business.
Congratulations to you both! And anonymous.

Ending with another bad joke.  ;D
Q: What noise wakes you up at the North Pole around March 18?
A: The crack of dawn!

Anonymous no more, it be me .. Whoever committed to the date first should have the prize ..  ;)

Think about it .. the end result would still be the same, many small melt puddles on the ice but only yellow in color.  ;D

Arctic sea ice / Cause and Effect
« on: August 20, 2016, 07:52:04 AM »
I have been a member of this forum since its inception. In the beginning, it was an intellectual, scientific discussion of ideas about the nature, the present condition of the Arctic sea ice. Users would analyze data, in all its forms, then present ideas based on what they were seeing. We would look for the "cause and effect" of what was happening. We would use past data to help to determine what the future might bring for the condition of the sea ice. It was just as useful when things didn't turn out the way we expected but we kept looking for that "cause and effect". Theories were presented not so much to be proven right or wrong but to add to our understanding why.
     We, I, expected ideas to be molded and adapted by the input of others on the subject. I never considered the discussion to be a case of being "right or wrong," just is it happening the way we anticipated it would or didn't. But whatever was occurring, we wanted to understand the nature of the "cause and effect" concerning the events unfolding. There is no need for "I told you so" as this is the not the nature of this forum. Some use the data to project what the future condition of the sea ice might bring but it is not intended, as I see it, to be a prophecy of the exact nature of what is to come, even if we have a pretty good idea already what the end result is going to be for the future arctic.
  Users posted only when they had something meaningful to add to the discussion. I rarely do , I am more of a student here, observing, learning from others way more knowledgeable than me on the topic. I wish there was an ignore button so I could block out users that just add noise to what I am trying read and understand. There are only a handful of users I follow and most are from the early days. I could say more but I won't, there is enough noise already.. Neven feel free to lock this thread.

Probably just part of the calibration process that is on going ..

I remember being taught in school (1960's) that the best kind of combustion was one that just released CO2 and water vapor only. That CO2 gas and water vapor were necessary for the cycle of life on the planet, therefore CO2 was not a pollutant  anymore than we would consider water a pollutant. Yes, you can have too much of a good thing.

I believe you missed Espen's "play on words", ice being substituted for nice. Therefore, his grammar usage is allowed.

It just seems that their server was down and you hit a standard US Gov landing page... Every click is logged by default on every web server in the world, even this Forum. Nothing to be alarmed about!
Knowing that sure makes me feel better ..  ;)

And not that it has anything to do with the University of Maine either .. ;D

Sometimes, I get the impression that some here want the ice to melt to prove a point about the present state of the climate. I for one enjoy the slow melting periods.
