There they go again, ABC National journos believing every thing that comes out of the mouths of the
Warmist Climate Change Centre (CCC) of NSW this time the Ideological Antarctic Division. “The West Antarctica is warming at 3 times the rest of the world.” No, not new data, just had a look at the old data, and tweaked it a bit. Something about adding bits and taking away bits, you know, best practice climate astrolo-science.
Lets have a look at Southern Ocean SST’s published this week.
The Southern Ocean is colder:
(14) Southern Ocean Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Anomalies
Monthly Change = -0.056 deg C
No, that’s colder. Check the map out, look the anomalies certainly show it’s not warmer :
(Global SST Anomaly = +0.243 deg C).
The West Australian - 11 hours ago
The West Antarctic Ice Sheet, whose melt may be responsible for 10 per cent of the sea-level rise caused by climate change, is warming twice as quickly as previously thought, a study says. …
Sea levels are not rising either.
ABC asked the astrologists from the CCC, when were the Pacific Islands going under? They’re NOT: CGPS based geodetic measurements at ten Pacific Ocean tide gauges show five are sinking, four steady and one rising 2001-2008
David M Hoffer at WUWT: [...]The models are still projecting reduced ice extent for both the Arctic and Antarctic. For those of us who’ve been following that story line, that’s another indication that the models are deeply flawed. While ice extent in the arctic is down, the Antarctic extent has been setting new records. So how does AR5 Ch11 handle this contradiction?
I doubt they looked at this paper from 2010, posted by ‘The Auditor’ and co-author Steve McIntyre: O’Donnell et al 2010 Refutes Steig et al 2009,
Dec 2, 2010 – 2:23 PM
Do some of you remember Steig et al 2009, a pre-Climategate Nature cover story? Like so many Team efforts, it applied a little-known statistical method, the properties of which were poorly known, to supposedly derive an important empirical result. In the case of Steig et al 2009, the key empirical claim was that strong Antarctic [...]
Two years ago: Explaining Ice Loss In West Antarctica
From the NSIDC image, it appears that there is a large amount of excess sea ice bordering West Antarctica (lower left.)
From the Sea Ice Pages at WUWT, the latest shows that the CCC is nothing but crap, as are those reporting the crap:
