Anthony Watts is taking a poll of predictions for this summer’s minimum in Arctic sea ice. Some of you might want to join in the fun.
There’s an interesting comment from someone using the monicker “Blade”

Almost exactly six months ago there was an earlier thread here about this very subject …
Joe Bastardi went early in for 5.5 Mkm^2. For what it matters, I will go with him.
It’s funny to see some of the climate trolls finally mustering up enough courage to take a stab at it now, six months later. In that thread we find R. Gates bloviating profusely and criticizing JB but failing to make a single prediction. Did I miss it?
And I see in a comment above that someone says that Tamino Foster Grant finally climbed out on a limb with a prediction now, six months later. Way to go G-Man.
Perhaps some of their groupies might also report on any daring predictions from Hansen, Mann, Serreze, Walt Meier, and Julienne Strove. I’m sure it would qualify as a taxpayer funded activity, so what’s stopping them? I mean, spend the money while you still can.
P.S. did I mention yet that Joe Bastardi made a prediction six months ago?
I made my prediction seven months ago. It’s here (near the end of the post).
I get the impression that Mr. Blade doesn’t think very highly of me. Or of James Hansen, Mike Mann, Mark Serreze, Walt Meiter, or Julienne Strove.
It’s flattering to be in such good company.
