No Summer This Year In Antarctica?

Antarctica has been experiencing far below normal temperatures for two months. A week from now is when temperatures normally start their rapid decline towards winter.

Meanwhile, Nature Geoscience just published an article about the inevitable “collapse” of an Antarctic ice sheet.

    So the cooling starts at the SH.

    SMH is onto the glacier study like a polar bear onto a seal. I like this bit:

    Geophysicists Valentina Radic and Regine Hock of the University of Alaska base these calculations on a computer model derived from records for more than 300 glaciers between 1961 and 2004. The model factors in the middle-of-the-road “A1B” scenario for greenhouse-gas emissions…

    So they’ve grafted a glacier model onto the A1B model, which is so far from reality it seems based on fruitloopery, and want us to believe?

  3. Is that -14F/-32F, or -14C/-32F, or Daytime/Nighttime, or is F the same as C or vice-versa, or what? Weather numbers, they’re just so confusing.

    ;O)

    But all the heat is all concentrated in the hypersensitive habitat of the polar bear! They are all doomed!!!
