South Pole ice cap sets new record

My annual birthday-month fund-raising drive for Behind the Black is now on-going. Not only do your donations help pay my bills, they give me the freedom to speak honestly about science and culture, instead of being forced to write it as others demand.


Please consider donating by giving either a one-time contribution or a regular subscription, as outlined in the tip jar below.


Regular readers can support Behind The Black with a contribution via paypal:

Or with a subscription with regular donations from your Paypal or credit card account:

If Paypal doesn't work for you, you can support Behind The Black directly by sending your donation by check, payable to Robert Zimmerman, to

You can also support me by buying one of my books, as noted in the boxes interspersed throughout the webpage. And if you buy the books through the ebookit links, I get a larger cut and I get it sooner.

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.

    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.)
