University of Washington’s ‘crap science’ …

Cereal packet qualifications would be a better choice to study this aspect of science, and get better, more accurate data. Lacking the ability to do hands on science, these warmist excuses for scientists from the University of Washington are true believers of computer models.

Claim: winds blamed for Antarctic sea ice approaching record high

Stronger winds explain puzzling growth of sea ice in Antarctica

Much attention is paid to melting sea ice in the Arctic. But less clear is the situation on the other side of the planet. Despite warmer air and oceans, there’s more sea ice in Antarctica now than in the 1970s – a fact often pounced on by global warming skeptics. The latest numbers suggest the Antarctic sea ice may be heading toward a record high this year.

While changes in weather may play a big role in short-term changes in sea ice seen in the past couple of months, changes in winds have apparently led to the more general upward sea ice trend during the past few decades, according to University of Washington research. A new modeling study to be published in the Journal of Climate shows that stronger polar winds lead to an increase in Antarctic sea ice, even in a warming climate.

Note to researchers and modellers, if you can call them that, the Southern Ocean is cold, very cold. It’s not a warming climate for a start! Bob Tisdale charts it:
