Re: Arctic sea ice coverage back to 'normal' levels

Not really true, my point about the differentials stands. The future is the tail wagging the dog right now. Futures can't be wagging anything! The whole thing is a wash. Many people on the “speculators did it” side like to point to financial data, especially large purchases of futures by various pl...

The main factor in the steepness of the price rise's is hedge fund activity in the futures. Not that old chesnut.

I do argue that you need to follow the money to get closer to the truth and also that the consensus of opinion when you actually drill down is nothing of the sort.

You initially posted about certain posters understanding the science, which you backtracked to those that don't just accept, my point is even f the warming science is correct the rest of the alarmist bollocks is never given context pr an attempt at solution. You are wilfully ignoring that point.
