Understanding Antarctica

Climate experts say that warm water is melting the freshwater ice shelves around Antarctica, causing the salt water to lose salinity, and freeze at a higher temperature.

The logic is simple. The water is warm enough to melt ice shelves at 0C, and is also cold enough to freeze sea water when its freezing point is raised from -3C to -2C.

The main qualification for being a climate expert is having an IQ lower than a turnip.

    No, the main qualification for being a climate expert is having no morals or ethics. As _Jim keeps pointing out, Sociopaths.

    • Colorado Wellington says:

      No, the main qualifications are the mutations that gave some members of our species an evolutionary advantage in the modern state: strong legs, thick skin and a long, hard pig snout.

      Morals and ethics are detrimental to success at the trough and declining naturally as a secondary result.

  2. Morgan says:

    Some of the sea ice that forms is 1000 miles from the nearest shelf.

  3. Margaret Berger says:

    I am one with Gail on this one. The turnips are the people who buy the sociapath’s math.

  4. Thermohaline circulation is very slow and complicated. Making ice would require some sort of rapid cycle, nonsense. Ice from 1000 miles away. Do you suppose any of the models could handle such a thing. Not a turnip, a rock, and the morals thing as well

  5. Morgan says:

    The reason the sea ice forms around Antarctica is, the surface heat goes to the bottom of the ocean.

  6. R2Dtoo says:

    Geez- an excuse for everything. What are the surface temps now that are melting the land ice? Garbage!

  7. Well, yes, but reduced salinity makes -2°C uh, thermoconvection, plus energy balance, CO2 CO2 CO2 Bush lied peeps died! (etc etc)

    The Australian announces the truth for a change.
    Obviously the carbon tax worked in record time and we can repeal it now.
    Lefties will be going into catastrophic meltdown!!

    Once again, I think Toto is unfairly targeting Turnips.

    I’m fairly sure that many government parasites “scientists” would make “fence posts” look like intellectual giants. And Turnips are generally far more intelligent than a fence post. (turnips are alive vs. most fence posts being dead and thus inert)

      They aren’t scientists, they are climatologists. A multidisciplinary study involving sociology, humanities, economics, communications, and political science. They are not required to take any science or math courses.

        “A multidisciplinary study involving sociology, humanities, economics, communications, and political science…”
        And computerized rune, ouija board, tarrot reading skills to BA level; aura manipulation, teleportation, crystal ball gazing, majic, voodoo to degree level; and then dark arts…

      Thank you Shazaam! Upon reading this article in the garden, my turnip patch went immediately into molting!. After reading your comment, they all perked up! You have saved my turnip crop! There must, or at least should be, a Nobel Prize for that!

  10. Andy Oz says:

    Statistically, there is about a 1% chance of Antarctic sea ice extent being so much higher than the 1981 – 2010 average. Or about 1 in 100 years!! This is UNPRECEDENTED and so we must be in a new climate paradigm.

    That is a gross insult to turnips.

    What has a turnip ever done to you?

    • Brian H says:

      What’s insulting to them to say they are smarter than climate experts? Kind of faint praise, perhaps, but ..

  12. Joe says:

    One warmist’s comment was, “”It’s not the same water doing both. The water is separated into layers, colder, less-dense freshwater on top and warmer, denser salt water below.”

    • Morgan says:

      That’s what they believe. They say the surface water is fresher because of increased rain, and summer meltwater from ice breaking off Antarctica. Imagine their scenario: In the summer, meltwater from the continent forms a layer of fresher water that spreads around Antarctica. Rain adds to this layer. This fresher water stays there for 6 months waiting for winter so it can freeze into record breaking sea ice.

      Let’s do an experiment. Fill a glass with seawater, add blue food coloring. Add a thin layer of freshwater with red food coloring on top. Let them sit for 6 months. Still red on top? I didn’t think so.

  13. Andy Oz says:

    May 21 – very cold SST’s around Antarctica right out to 45 degrees latitude!!
    Sea Ice reaching 60 degrees latitude near South America.
    And alarmists want us to believe that this is due to the glaciers melting??
    Whatever they are smoking, the FDA says it’s bad for their brain cells.
