In terms of Eric’s sea ice hypothesis (which was a pervasive sub-theme for one of the reviews ;) ), this difference could prove to be important, as the increasing amount of sea ice in the Ross Sea is somewhat at odds with the S09 pattern of warming, which shows a maximum on Ross. In terms of glaciology, the difference is much less because the glaciers Eric is concerned with are not located on Ross.

And a bit later [“and a bit later” was added to bypass Tumblr’s implementation of Markdown]:

The key area Eric is talking about (also pointed out by one of the reviewers ;) ) affects the Pine Island and Thwaites glaciers.

The whole thread is worth the read. On that very post, there is a “symptom” attributed to someone named “Eric” but handwaved towards scientists that merits due diligence.

There is also a very interesting discussion on the nuances between the verbs to refute, to rebut, and to repudiate.

On all my work, my name affirms my Honor.

PS: Eli teached me how to be pedagogical, J. Bowers. Wink wink.
