And For Today's Climate Change News: Arctic Melt "not That Unusual"

Recommended Posts

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2013/04/15/western_antarctic_melting_nothing_unusual/

“If we could look back at this region of Antarctica in the 1940s and 1830s, we would find that the regional climate would look a lot like it does today, and I think we also would find the glaciers retreating much as they are today,” comments Eric Steig, a senior earth-sciences boffin at the University of Washington and the lead author on the new research.

So what's this article not taking into consideration. Is there anything to worry about? Are we all saved?

It's a re-report of this:

http://www.washington.edu/news/2013/04/14/recent-antarctic-climate-glacier-changes-at-the-upper-bound-of-normal/

Which could be interpreted as saying 'If we look at one spot on the planet that is *known* to have a highly variable climate we can find that current warming has yet to exceed natural bounds'.

It would be extremely dishonest to use that argument in a global context.

True.

However dishonesty seems to be "de rigeur" in climate debate ,the truth is lost in a fog of lies and misinformation.

Our children and grandchildren will find out, I suppose.

I'm still waiting for the new Ice age predicted in the early 1970s.

Amongst the downright lies told about Antartica (they dont want you to know or think about this so they can keep hyping)

- is the massive, strong circular currents that surround Antarctica.

It is these that weaken and break off huge tracts of ice as they are pushed out into the current by the flowing glaciers

- not melting or global warming

It is these that stop the ice mass growing too far out from the landmass :P
