I was planning on buying some Arctic beach front property - guess I am out of luck.

I've posted sea ice data a few times on this forum. I've usually focused on the antarctic which has grown in the last 30 years. The media loves to focus on the arctic. Reality is that with only 30 years worth of data, none of it should be used for anything definative. 30 years worth of data is just not enough to determine anything, regarding the this topic anyway.

I wonder why the data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center shows a graph than what Watts has?
