The uncertainty of science: The Antarctic ice cap set a record for size this past week.

The sea ice coverage around Antarctica over the weekend marked a record high, with the ice surrounding the continent measuring at 2.07 million square kilometers, according to an environmentalist and author who says the ice there has actually been increasing since 1979 despite continued warnings of global warming.

The article notes how global warming climate scientists conveniently insist that the growing south pole ice cap and the extended cold temperatures there are irrelevant to their theirs. A real scientist, however, would dismiss no data, as to do so skews the results.

    Ya, but, but, I have it on good authority the ice is 20% warmer than it was in 1980. A friend told me he read that some scientist said so. A real SCIENTIST. You, you, you denier, you. Think of all the polar bears and penguins that are going to die when he Antarctic ice melts in 100 years. But, nooooo, you don’t care you shill for big oil and the coal lobby.

    Got global warming?

    I love the last line.

    >..the South Pole’s temperature has been dropping over the past 40 years….

    The global warming computer models and conceptual physics predicted the maximum warming effects would be seen at the poles, since the 24 night would no longer be as capable of radiating away heat through the atmosphere. (since theres less solar heart coming in to block like in the lower latitudes, more of the local climates heat depends on retaining heat blown in from other areas, rather then absorbing heat from the sun.)
