How would he know what the SST anomalies are in the Hudson Bay or in Baffin Bay? They arenít represented by GISS data. GISS deletes SST anomaly data in areas where thereís seasonal sea ice and extends land surface data (with its greater variability and higher trends) out over the oceans and those bays.
The great thing about the internet is that there are lots of people who look at this stuff in some detail. Again and again.
