There IS NO correlation between CO2 and temperature; Another SS "Myth" debuked

Another debunking of one of UNSkeptical UNScience -SS's- so-called "Myths." This time debunking their #46

"There's no correlation between CO2 and temperature"There is long-term correlation between CO2 and global temperature; other effects are short-term.

Although SS says: "There is long-term correlation between CO2 and global temperature," implying that man's CO2 emissions are causing the falsified CAGW hypothesisJoanne Nova has graphed the Vostok Ice Core data which show that Carbon dioxide levels follow temperature changes with an 800 year lag;
The bottom line is that rising temperatures cause carbon levels to rise. Carbon may still influence temperatures, but these ice cores are neutral on that. If both factors caused each other to rise significantly, positive feedback would become exponential. We’d see a runaway greenhouse effect. It hasn’t happened. Some other factor is more important than carbon dioxide, or carbon’s role is minor.

"Arctic sea ice has recovered"Thick arctic sea ice is in rapid retreat.

Arctic sea ice HAS recovered

 Figure 7:20 Link


It has. The IPCC in Far, Figure 7.20, page 224 (see above), shows the low point for Arctic sea ice was in 1974 which was before the weather satellites began in 1979 (Figure 7.20 here). 

The Arctic had much less ice 6000 years ago:-


Arctic Ocean perennial sea ice breakdown during the Early Holocene Insolation Maximum   Stranne et al -Quaternary Science Reviews

The Abstract begins:
Arctic Ocean sea ice proxies generally suggest a reduction in sea ice during parts of the early and middle Holocene (∼6000–10,000 years Before the Present) compared to present day conditions. This sea ice minimum has been attributed to the northern hemisphere Early Holocene Insolation Maximum (EHIM) associated with Earth’s orbital cycles. 

In the modern era Arctic temperature peaked before 1950, causing sea ice to peak and then decline.The decline continued until 2013 when it increased. 2013 is important because it was
