Quotes by Roger Pielke Sr

Climate Myth What the Science Says
"not all glaciers and ice caps are melting. While the Arctic ice, for example, has been decreasing in areal extent...Antarctic sea ice coverage has not"
8 November 2011 (Source)
Arctic sea ice loss is three times greater than Antarctic sea ice gain.
" Melting is a response to warming. However, not all glaciers and ice caps are melting. While the Arctic ice, for example, has been decreasing in areal extent; see http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.anomaly.arctic.png Antarctic sea ice coverage has not; see http://arctic.atmos.uiuc.edu/cryosphere/IMAGES/seaice.anomaly.antarctic.png"
8 November 2011 (Source)
Satellites measure Antarctica losing land ice at an accelerating rate.
"...the global average temperature anomalies are cooling! "
8 November 2011 (Source)
The last decade 2000-2009 was the hottest on record.
"There has not been warming significantly, if at all, since 2003, as most everyone on all sides of the climate issue agree. "
15 September 2011 (Source)

There are many lines of evidence indicating global warming is unequivocal.

"...I have reproduced below the current plots of lower tropospheric temperature anomalies. The trend of temperatures using that climate metric is NOT accelerating, and, indeed, has not even been positive for over 12 years!"
4 April 2011 (Source)
For global records, 2010 is the hottest year on record, tied with 2005.
"upper ocean heat, in terms of its annual average, did not accumulate during the period ~2004 through 2009"
6 September 2010 (Source)
The most recent ocean measurements show consistent warming.
"upper ocean heat, in terms of its annual average, did not accumulate during the period ~2004 through 2009. This means that global warming halted on this time period. There is no other way to spin this data"
6 September 2010 (Source)

Global temperature is still rising and 2010 was the hottest recorded.

"“shrinking Arctic sea ice” NOT TRUE; see the Northern Hemisphere Sea Ice Anomaly from the University of Illinois Cyrosphere Today website. Since 2008, the anomalies have actually [in]creased."
30 June 2009 (Source)
Thick arctic sea ice is in rapid retreat.
"Their has been no statistically significant warming of the upper ocean since 2003."
30 June 2009 (Source)
The most recent ocean measurements show consistent warming.
"Sea level has actually flattened since 2006."
30 June 2009 (Source)
The claim sea level isn’t rising is based on blatantly doctored graphs contradicted by observations.
