Corruption Of Antarctic Temperature Data Over The Last 10 Years

“People were calculating with their heads instead of actually doing the math,” Steig said

Global Cooling In Antarctica
by Kate Melville

Antarctica overall has cooled measurably during the last 35 years – despite a global average increase in air temperature of 0.06 degrees Celsius during the 20th century – making it unique among the Earth’s continental landmasses, according to a paper published today in the online version of Nature.

Researchers with the National Science Foundation (NSF) Longterm Ecological Research (LTER) site in Antarctica’s Dry Valleys – a perpetually snow-free, mountainous area adjacent to McMurdo Sound – argue in the paper that long-term data from weather stations across the continent, coupled with a separate set of measurements from the Dry Valleys, confirm each other and corroborate the continental cooling trend.

Continental cooling, especially the seasonality of cooling, poses challenges to models of climate and ecosystem change.”


By 2007, the corruption had set in.

    I think of it as Mann 2009, to not forget it’s more famous co-author.

  2. Paul H says:

    According to UAH the trend is a decline of .07C per decade since 1979.

    2010 was actually 1.17C cooler than 1980.

    They don’t get paid to tell lies.

    “global average increase in air temperature of 0.06 degrees Celsius during the 20th century” ? Shouldn’t that be 0.6C?

  4. Andy WeissDC says:

    Another on the list of many places where global warming appears to be mysteriously not taking place.

  5. Doug in Seattle says:

    No temperature profile is truly complete until it has been run through the mann-o-matic. We now even have tides run through it to make sure the IPCC has something to report on in their newest ,and most dire, climate forecast.

  6. In the warm Middle ages(Bible based) they build churches(religious monuments) and art from that time where mostly all religious..

    In the warm Modern Hockeystick ages(UNFCCC based) they build windmills(Idelogical monuments(Eco/EnviroSosilalism)) and science mostly produce Hockey Stick graphs.

    Dinner, if you live close enough:)

  8. I vaguely recall that Steig explained at RC at the time of publication, that his new paper was not inconsistent with every other paper published on this topic (which either showed no warming trend or cooling) because his data analysis began circa 1950. He admitted that the last 30 years of temperature data continued to show a cooling trend.
