Arctic Sea Ice Increases at Record Rate

Lefties will try to tell you that the Arctic sea ice is melting at a record rate. Don't listen to them, because they are telling you a lie.

A case in point:

Looking at this plot of the 30 day slopes of actual NASA gridded data, the maximum ice melt rate occurs in 1999 and in 2004 not in 2007. Surprisingly the maximum ice growth rates occur in 2007 and 2008, I don’t remember those headlines for some reason. Don’t forget when looking at the 2008 - 09 peak, the data is preliminary and hasn’t been through the same processing as the other data. From looking at the unprocessed data I doubt it will change much.
