1. http://GreatWhiteCon.info/broken - An animation revealing how the Arctic sea ice changed between September 1st and September 18th 2013. The (preliminary) 2013 NSIDC minimum extent of 5.099 million km² occurred on September 13th.

    By September 18th the "Polar Polynya" appears to be reopening, and moving ever closer to the North Pole.

    As you can see, the sea ice in the Arctic has many holes and cracks in it, and lots of open water around it. It is not therefore an "unbroken sheet that already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores", as maintained by David Rose in the Mail on Sunday edition of September 8th.

    The music is "Clean Song" by West Somerset duo "De Larje" from the charity compilation album "Water Connects Us": http://Water-Connects-Us.org

  2. http://GreatWhiteCon.info/broken - An animation revealing how the Arctic sea ice changed between August 15th and September 13th 2013, the date of the preliminary 2013 NSIDC minimum extent at 5.099 million km², 49% above the record 2012 minimum of 3.41 million km².

  3. http://GreatWhiteCon.info/broken - Here at Great White Con Ivory Towers we've received a couple of letters from The Daily Telegraph recently, both signed Robert Winnett, Head of News. Here's an extract from one of them:

    "In reply to your enquiry, the Telegraph's policy is to correct clear inaccuracies once we are alerted to them - and in appropriate cases update articles on our website".

    This is yet another alert for you Robert. There was no "reputable evidence... to show an unbroken ice sheet more than half the size of Europe already stretches from the Canadian Islands to Russia's northern shore" on September 8th 2013. This video discusses a variety of sources of both reputable and disreputable evidence!

    The music is "The Hanging Cloud" by "Foales Arishes" who are based in Devon (as the name suggests!) from the charity compilation album "Water Connects Us": http://Water-Connects-Us.org

    Reputable evidence:

    Disreputable evidence:

    The NASA video is also reproduced online by The Telegraph, where it is currently mistitled "Nasa animation shows Antarctic ice cap fluctuations": http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/climatechange/10339674/Climate-change-report-Nasa-animation-shows-Antarctic-ice-cap-fluctuations.html

  4. http://GreatWhiteCon.info/broken - Amongst other things an animation revealing how the Arctic sea ice concentration and extent changed between September 13th and September 27th 2013. The 2013 NSIDC minimum extent of 5.099 million km² occurred on September 13th.

    As you can see, the sea ice in the Arctic has many holes and cracks in it, and lots of open water around it. It is not therefore an "unbroken sheet that already stretches from the Canadian islands to Russia's northern shores", as maintained by David Rose in the Mail on Sunday edition of September 8th. On the evening of September 28th the Mail Online published a "corrected" version of that article, replacing the ludicrous original numbers with those calculated by The Great White Con. However they contrived to continue The Con by blaming their error on an NSIDC "typo" - http://GreatWhiteCon.info/2013/09/the-mail-makes-modest-amends/

    Also discussed in the video is the recent IPCC AR5 Working Group 1 meeting in Stockholm - http://econnexus.org/ipcc-say-human-influence-on-the-climate-system-is-clear/
