Inland everything is colder. Antarctica has the coldest land temperature recorded on the Earth of -89.2°C. Remote Islands and Antarctica in August 2019. Which means the sky is falling. Berkeley Earth, a California-based non-profit research organization, has been preparing independent analyses of global mean temperature changes since 2013. FAQ's About Here’s an example of the usual claptrap: http://cdn.antarcticglaciers.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/PIG.ai_-768×440.jpg. Jump to a map of the areas covered in this summary Australia's Indian Ocean islands. Cloudy. In other words, melting isn’t an issue. Honolulu has the highest average annual temperature of any major US city at over 24 C (anomaly of 9 C) that’s 6 times the 1.5 C increased temperature level that is going to result in environmental disaster. Wait a minute, how can you call rising from -20 deg C to -16 deg C “slight warming”? "G\\\\30\\\\00\\\\00\\\\\\\\10\\\\0p\\\\7p17\\\\\\\\7l17\\\\\\\\efz>obsemg\\" + From about 1958 to about 1990 Antarctica became, on average, a smidgen less brutally cold. It is nearly always warmer in daylight than at night the Antarctic Peninsula, most Northerly of the Antarctic bases “that threat has been eased since the NSIDC put the Cryosphere Sea Ice group out of business in mid 2016”. |  privacy policy  I think you meant to say “such big grants”. Graph by NOAA Climate.gov based on data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center. Men's Sale Shoes, Copyright – Fred Pearce The Climate Files: Sarc on, panic now,as the POLE freezes,the sea ice will expand ever northward, eventually(Sorry suddenly and catastrophically) rendering the souther sea lanes unusable. ), “…gain so much speculation from so few facts…”. A black body of temperature -80 deg C emits LWIR of peak wavelength 15µ. We conclude that 2019 was the second warmest year on Earth since 1850. With the Antartica icecap at an average altitude of 8,200 feet, and with an average temperature of about -40 C or colder with 6 months of that in near darkness, it isn’t surprising there hasn’t been any warming and little effect on melting the southern continent that has been frozen over in an ice age for 34 million years. You can say that again but these boofheads don’t do irony. Antarctica’s albedo appears to have increased over most of the continent, which could explain the cooling. Antarctic Clothing | Antarctica, March of the PenguinsDVD's and picture books on the Antarctic continent that is the furthest from any other One explanatio for this lack of warming is probably that more CO2 in the atmosphere is actually expected to cause cooling in inland East Antarctica where there is a semi-permanent temperature inversion. Although that might not seem very much, it is 5 times the mean rate of global warming as reported by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Doom Doom Doom. For permission, contact us. Consistently Still a few but we are regularly informed that they are dying wholesale. 300 K by wavelength, peak at 9.659 µm (not 5.056 µm); screenshot: Don’t worry about what they call you.” – Andrew Breitbart | read more, “…the world’s most viewed climate website” Below is a plot from a resource we have not used before on WUWT, “RIMFROST“.

These are good for comparison purposes but a bit misleading Mostly cloudy. //
