Perhaps “conversation” is somewhat too strong a word? We have somehow managed to engage the Mail on Sunday’s top investigative journalist (AKA David Rose) in a debate about sea ice on Twitter. For some strange reason he tried to change the topic from the Arctic to the Antarctic!
@SteveSGoddard @DavidRoseUK @BBCAmos – #Nobel or not, an #inconvenient #truth is that @algore isn’t a #scientist, or even an #engineer.

@GreatWhiteCon @SteveSGoddard @BBCAmos @algore Antarctic still almost 2 standard deviations above mean. IPCC doesn’t know why (AR5). Oops.

@BBCAmos @algore Don’t you start too @DavidRoseUK! Can we agree on the “facts” at least, unlike @SteveSGoddard? pic.twitter.com/5KD6MkZAN1 — Snow White (@GreatWhiteCon) March 14, 2014
Meanwhile we gatecrashed another debate that David Rose was gatecrashing, about a topic we have some experience with.
@mark_lynas @mattwridley But El Ninos are often followed by big La Ninas. What if Judy Curry is right and hiatus lasts well into 2030s?

@DavidRoseUK @mark_lynas @mattwridley What is the a priori probability that anything Judy Curry says is correct? http://t.co/TycBnv35rP — Snow White (@GreatWhiteCon) March 15, 2014
We’ll keep you posted!

How is the graph you showed below that tweet anything other than “almost 2 standard deviations above mean”, exactly as Rose stated?
To use another well worn phrase from a previous conversation with The Mail on Sunday, don’t you understand English?
Mr. Rose made an assertion on Twitter, with no data to back it up. I provided him with a graph of some data (AKA “facts” in TwitterSpeak). He hasn’t bothered to say thank you yet.
