Looking at short periods don’t give you a big enough picture of the problem, just local or temporary factors may be involved, and much more importantly…you failed to mention (probably due to not knowing the full data…) that in the same period you mention, there happened a big increase of ice extension on the other side, the Antarctic.
It’s the same thing as I repeat over and over…not wide enough analysis of the problem, and too little data used to jump to quick conclusions.
Yes…exactly what may be happening again in this timeframe, on different regions.

When quoting sources to make a point, your choice of sources matter and reflects upon you! I carefully chose my sources. Since I wasn’t actually taking a direct anti-Trump stance, it would have been a heck of lot easier for me to use FOX news (Pro-Trump) as my source but I chose CNN news (Anti-Trump) deliberately as not to be ridiculed like you for choosing questionably bias media.
I don’t follow the topic like that, but I believe that even one of the co-founders of ipcc and a renowned climate researcher left the association because it was no longer about science, but only about politics.
