Need another indicator of climate warming in Antarctica? The trio of weather bloggers at Weather Underground report the temperature there likely hit a record-breaking 63.5F (17.5C) Tuesday.
The balmy reading was logged at Argentina’s Esperanza Base, which lies on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula.
Irrespective of whether the record stands, it fits right into the pattern of rapid climate warming recently observed in the Antarctic Peninsula region. The British Antarctic Survey writes this region has warmed about 5F (2.8 C) in the last 50 years. “[This] makes this the most rapidly warming region in the Southern Hemisphere – comparable to rapidly warming regions of the Arctic,” it notes.
What a total crock from Jason Samenow at the Capital Weather Gang. Temperatures at the Antarctic Peninsula have been declining for 35 years.
They currently have record sea ice at the Antarctic Peninsula
The amount of sea ice around Antarctica has been steadily increasing to record levels for 35 years.
Temperatures in the interior of Antarctica are unbelievably cold
The forecast for Esperanza is cold and snow
The level of deceit from alarmists is approaching infinity. They pick a one day reading at one location as proof of continental warming, in defiance of overwhelming evidence to the contrary.
