Many of you are already aware that the WUWT blog regularly conducts a poll to predict the minimum sea ice extent we’ll see later this year, and their poll result is submitted as a prediction to ARCUS. What a great idea! Not only does it gauge the opinion of the WUWT readers about a very precise quantity, it’s also fun.
So let’s have fun too. I don’t have the convenient survey program or plug-in (and I’m really not that interested in it), so you vote by commenting. After a reasonable voting period I’ll tally the answers and report the result. The question is: what will be this year’s minimum sea ice extent? It asks for a number so give a numerical answer. If you want to predict the upcoming minimum sea ice area as well that’s fine, but the question is about extent. Units are millions of square kilometers.
Feel free explain or qualify your choice.
