Famous climate denialist Joe Bastari of WeatherBELL Analytics LLC, formerly of Accuweather.com made a prediction on Arctic ice recovery back in 2010 (when at AccuWeather), and observations have since made his “studies” laughable.

I did not realize that Tamino had encounters with Joe Bastardi at his blog at the time I wrote this post. Here are the links:
