In a bit of strange and unprecedented good news, it was recently discovered Antarctic sea ice is growing at record rates. This is definitely odd, of course, because the air and the oceans have been getting warmer in the area.
Zhang, an oceanographer at the UW Applied Physics Laboratory, now has his research published in the Journal of Climate.
Sea Ice Growth Due To Global Warming – Science News – redOrbit
Warm water and air causes ice to form.
Of course, wind is not blamed for the loss of Arctic ice in 2012.
It only took them 5 paragraphes before they mentioned that this was all determined by a computer model.
Is there anything that climate science models can’t do? Magical, just f’en magical.
Pay no attention to the Mann behind the curtain.
It may have warmed but not above freezing. Also the western peninsula has warmed much more and in some papers they have used graphics which mix some of that warmth into the rest of the continent. Then they graph it with red and pink as warmer and the whole continent looks pink (warmer) even though it is not.
Yes, Steig really came out of the whole episode (including his review tactics on the O’Donnell paper) looking pretty smallish. But Nature got their scary (although not accurate) cover graphic didn’t they? And a great CAGW headline.
Using the words: ‘could’ and ‘might’ make the argument here say. So they ‘might’ as well STFU. Besides, what global warming are they referring to? Perhaps it is the last significant warm period called the Medieval Warm Period, and the following time warp culminating in todays non global warming. Liberal/Green climate agenda gibberish.
Data doesn’t show warmer water and air temperatures have declined slightly in 30 years. It takes a special kind of stupid to work in this field.
