Understanding How Excess Heat Causes Record Antarctic Ice

I left the crock pot on overnight cooking chili, and this morning it is full of little hot ice cubes shaped like pinto beans.

Climate experts tell us that the record Antarctic ice is due to global warming, as is the ice-free Arctic winter. If Antarctic ice starts to shrink in the future, can we assume that it is due to global cooling?

  1. Did any ice slide off the kitchen cabinet into the chili?

    Two things with this pathetic, not even an argument, that the deniers of reality are putting up about the record increase are this.

    Now I’m no scientist but if the melting freshwater from the Antarctic ice cap is causing more sea ice , then why are we not seeing the same thing with Greenland, I mean surely there would be some major plus sea ice anomalies if that nonsense theory were true?

    secondly: Okay we accept that the sea ice which must affect the albedo slightly as there is more to melt in summer, is really growing as a result of the melting freshwater then how far is this expected to go f&8king Elephant Island?

    Hey but what do I know.

    The oceans did absorbe heat since early 1900’s but that was due to to the sun( like a stove on high). Since 2000 the sun has turned down the heat(solar flux, TSI) to medium high. It takes some time to cool.

    I put my fruit cake in the oven and finished up with glacier cherries already to be picked.

    So the ice melting causes the sea to freeze? Hmm can that process be reverse , where we melt the sea ice and get the land ice to freeze?

    Does it work backward?

    Baaah. Usually these people do my thinking for me http://www.ncdc.noaa.gov , but they have been shut down by evil republican denialists. Back to American Idol. Baaah.

    Precedented Warming in Antarctica

    Warmists like to claim warming in every part of the world is unprecedented.

    This paper says just the opposite. Warming has been more dramatic in the 1700s and 1800s than today.

    “We present a new stable isotope record from Ellsworth Land which provides a valuable 308-year record (1702-2009) of climate variability from coastal West Antarctica. Climate variability at this site is strongly forced by sea surface temperatures (SSTs) and atmospheric pressure in the tropical Pacific and related to local sea ice conditions. The record shows that this region has warmed since the late 1950s, at a similar magnitude to that observed in the Antarctic Peninsula and central West Antarctica, however, this warming trend is not unique. More dramatic isotopic warming (and cooling) trends occurred in the mid-19th and 18th centuries, suggesting that at present the effect of anthropogenic climate drivers at this location has not exceeded the natural range of climate variability in the context of the past ~300 years.“

    I filled my ice cube tray and left it out overnight. Next morning the heat turned the water into ice! These guys are so smart, who woulda thunk it?
