What is up with that?

Popped over to for my daily dose of climate related stuff to be greeted with this headline; “Catastrophic” retreat of glaciers in Spitsbergen. Good grief! I thought. Is there something going on that the satellite photo's and ice coverage maps haven't picked up? Was there really a melting of ice “unprecedented in the history of the Arctic” going on? Are there really ten degree temperature anomalies?

Well there were. In 1934 and 1935. Recorded observations from a Soviet report published in 1943. Milankovitch cycles anyone?

Denial? I see no denial. Just cycles. Which are the only climate cycles worth peddling at present.

H/T Wattsupwiththat
