Antarctic climate changers are scaring themselves and the ABC again …

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.

[UPDATE: Looked at in more detail now at WUWT. Check them out too.]

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

(90S-60S)

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).

Look here, The West Australian joined in again, When will they learn to fact check the data? Never?: News for west antarctic warming

Antarctic ice warming faster than thought

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:

    You really wonder if the alarmists will try to shut down CT, their ol ally LOL

  2. Jeff Condon says:

    It appears that someone significantly modified the AWS station data which was not used for Steig 09 or O’Donnell 10 because of it’s inherent problems. I have both the old and new data and am taking some time to examine what was done.

    • Tom Harley says:

      They carried on as though it was all new science when I listened to the radio interview and then at the last sentence they said they looked at the data ‘a different way’. ABC may have a transcript.

    Can you fix: “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 twicSea levels are not rising either.”?

  5. So, the estimates for ice loss from antarctica have been reduced reduced and reduced. Everyone admits that the antarctic and the southern hemisphere in general is colder or at least getting warmer more slowly than the NH. Latest most accurate measurements of ice loss show antarctica actually gaining ice for decades and decades. Yet according to this antarctica is actually getting warmer four times faster? Doesn’t make sense to me. I guess they just needed another data point to counteract all the skeptical science being produced.
