1. The Arctic has the highest resolution surface temperature ‘data’ of anywhere on the planet, because NASA GISS, Gavin’s home, simulates the temperatures with their models and then uses them as *observations* when calculating global trends.

    What a bunch of political hack climate activists.

  2. Of course, the Arctic is only a few percent of the Earth’s surface, and no self-respecting scientist would use temperatures in a tiny region to represent the globe. Gavin was clear on this in January, 2010, while discussing a very cold NE US winter:

    “NASA: So what’s happening in the United States may be quite different than what’s happening in other areas of the world?
    Gavin Schmidt: “Yes, especially for short time periods. Keep in mind that the contiguous United States represents just 1.5 percent of Earth’s surface.”
