Anthony Cox debunks Another Falsity from the BS (Bad Science) from the SS.
Arctic sea ice HAS recovered.

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 -
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.
Self-styled “global-warming” guru Al Gore (shown) and a gaggle of supposed “climate scientists” have egg all over their faces — big time. In 2007, 2008 and 2009, Gore publicly and very hysterically warned that the North Pole would be “ice-free” by around 2013 because of alleged “man-made global warming.” Citing “climate” experts, the government-funded BBC hyped the mass hysteria, running a now-embarrassing article under the headline: “Arctic summers ice-free ‘by 2013’.”
