I'm getting my ice cap data from the government agency who reports it every single month. I don't take it from pro-AGW message board sites.

The former vice president said the new projections suggest an almost-vanished summer ice cap could disappear much earlier than foreseen by a U.S. government agency just eight months.
"It is hard to capture the astonishment that the experts in the science of ice felt when they saw this," Gore told reporters and other conference participants at a joint briefing with Scandinavian officials and scientists, his first appearance at the two-week session.
Update at 3:58 p.m. ET: "Some of the models suggest that there is a 75 percent chance that the entire north polar ice cap during some of the summer months will be completely ice-free within the next five to seven years," Gore said.
Afterward his office clarified his statement, saying he meant nearly ice-free, because ice would be expected to survive in island channels and other locations. . . .
Gore: Polar ice cap may disappear by summer 2014
Which makes one wonder how many times those computer models will have to be wrong before at least some of the AGW religionists will also become skeptics?
