While the minimum isn't a new record, the annual extent average is: (Wow, the sign-in process to comment here is beyond just ridicu-lousily botched. Some Typepad manager needs a kick.)

Alas I'm with Remko. All you can effectively tell the boneheads is "burn!" "drown!" "shrivel!". And don't be afraid of "bullshit!". Evidence based communication. Massaging their egos does not help and is a waste of words. Heck, this is 2015.
Jim Hunt, indeed a graphic graphic! The paradigmatic graph to end all hiatus delusions. Horror of the Lomborgs of our world.
I'd like to believe this is a politcal message to several fronts at once from the political genius Obama. 1) Message to Shell: "Go ahead, shoot yourself in the foot. Demonstrate your technological incompetence and moral bankruptcy". (His anger translator would say, "go f* yourself".) 2) Message to the sane world, e.g. to McKibben, to the divestment movement, to environmental groups large and small: "Your voice is not yet loud enough. I beg you to work harder." 3) Message to the fossil fools, the Republicans, the global markets: "I try hard to keep the world economy stable. We cannot afford another financial crisis due to rising oil prices." ------------ Methinks Saudi Arabia is not targetting someone specific in the oil price war. It's not about ruining Iranian or Russian fossilists. It is about ruining any competitor. Shells seems to happily comply with their Arctic suicide mission. -- Martin Gisser not "D" :-)
