Body Of Evidence: All Of Antarctica Is Cooling… Peninsula Cooling Since Long Before Greta Was Born — Iowa Climate Science Education

The IPCC 6th Report seems to have missed a lot, hasn’t it? Recent publications since the 5th Report show ALL OF ANTARCTICA, including the peninsula, has cooled since the late 1990s.  Friday I wrote about how the entire continent of Antarctica (except its peninsula) was found by leading scientists to be cooling significantly. The publication […]

Climate data shows no recent warming in Antarctica, instead a slight cooling — Watts Up With That?

 

Below is a plot from a resource we have not used before on WUWT, “RIMFROST“. It depicts the average temperatures for all weather stations in Antarctica. Note that there is some recent cooling in contrast to a steady warming since about 1959. Contrast that with claims by Michael Mann, Eric Steig, and others who used…

Volcano Climate Shock: Heat Source Under Antarctica Could Be Melting Western Ice Sheets —

Volcano Climate Shock: Heat Source Under Antarctica Could Be Melting Western Ice Sheets http://www.thegwpf.com/volcano-climate-shock-heat-source-under-antarctica-could-be-melting-giant-ice-caps/ Volcanic heat beneath the Pine Island Glacier in Antarctica could be exacerbating the melting ice sheets, according to a shocking climate study. A team of international scientists has discovered a source of intense volcanic heat beneath Antarctica’s fastest-melting ice sheet. Professor…

Worse than they thought: Antarctica actually colder than scientists once believed — Iowa Climate Science Education

From the AGU and the “but, but, the continent is melting!” department. COLDEST PLACE ON EARTH IS COLDER THAN SCIENTISTS THOUGHT WASHINGTON — Tiny valleys near the top of Antarctica’s ice sheet reach temperatures of nearly minus 100 degrees Celsius (minus 148 degrees Fahrenheit) in the winter, a new study finds. The results could change […]

Study provides less gloom and doom about Antarctica — Watts Up With That?

Antarctic ice sheet is melting, but rising bedrock below could slow it down COLORADO STATE UNIVERSITY An international team, led by DTU Space at the Technical University of Denmark with Colorado State University, has found that the bedrock below the remote West Antarctic Ice Sheet is rising much more rapidly than previously thought, in response…

Claim: New model for gauging ice sheet movement may improve sea-level-rise predictions — Watts Up With That?

From the UNIVERSITY OF KANSAS LAWRENCE — A just-published paper in Science changes the formula scientists should use when estimating the speed of huge ice sheets in Greenland and Antarctica that flow into the ocean and drive mounting sea levels around the globe. The change in the formula for predicting ice flow — or basal sliding —…

This just in from the Ministry of Truth — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

One of our local mouthpieces for the Ministry of Disinformation Truth, Newshub, has gone on record to say that Antarctica is melting and, as a result, the sea-level rise could be 58m. Quote: Antarctica is losing its ice three times faster than just six years ago, raising fears the frozen continent may not be that…

How could it have been so warm without human carbon emissions? — Whale Oil Beef Hooked | Whaleoil Media

For anyone who says the science is settled, then there is this: Antarctica as we know it is a frosty wilderness covered in thick compacted ice. But a recent scientific discovery suggests that the vast white continent was home to leafy forests, some 280 million years ago. During the last Antarctic summer, geologist Erik…

New map of Antarctic geothermal heat suggests Steig & Mann 2009 weren’t measuring ‘global warming’ — Watts Up With That?

This is quite interesting. Remember the claim in on the front cover of Nature in 2009 by Steig and Mann that Antarctica was warming, thanks to that “special Mannian PCA math sauce” that was applied to air temperature data to smear surface temperature trends over the entire continent? It was dashed by climate skeptics who […]

NASA: VOLCANIC ACTIVITY IS HEATING UP ANTARCTICA’S ICE SHEET —

Date: 08/11/17 Daily Caller, NASA Ancient underground streams of heated rock, called a mantle plume, might be an explanation for the instability of Antarctica’s western ice sheet, according to a new NASA study. Scientists have been debating whether or not mantle plume heat contributes to western Antarctica’s instability. Some recent studies provided evidence this might…

NASA: ‘Natural Variability,’ Not The UN, Shrank The Ozone Layer Hole —

By MICHAEL BASTASCH The extent of the dreaded “hole” in the Earth’s ozone layer over Antarctica is the smallest it’s been since government scientists began monitoring it nearly three decades ago. Some attributed the shrunken ozone layer to the ratifying of the Montreal Protocol in the 1980s. In that agreement, countries agreed to phase out ozone-depleting chemicals…
