Junk Scientists: Global Warming Means More Antarctic Ice

You just can’t make this stuff up.
The junk scientists are now trying to convince the masses that global warming means more ice.

Experts: Global warming means more Antarctic ice

The ice goes on seemingly forever in a white pancake-flat landscape, stretching farther than ever before. And yet in this confounding region of the world, that spreading ice may be a cockeyed signal of man-made climate change, scientists say.

This is Antarctica, the polar opposite of the Arctic.

While the North Pole has been losing sea ice over the years, the water nearest the South Pole has been gaining it. Antarctic sea ice hit a record 7.51 million square miles in September. That happened just days after reports of the biggest loss of Arctic sea ice on record.

Climate change skeptics have seized on the Antarctic ice to argue that the globe isn’t warming and that scientists are ignoring the southern continent because it’s not convenient. But scientists say the skeptics are misinterpreting what’s happening and why.

Shifts in wind patterns and the giant ozone hole over the Antarctic this time of year — both related to human activity — are probably behind the increase in ice, experts say. This subtle growth in winter sea ice since scientists began measuring it in 1979 was initially surprising, they say, but makes sense the more it is studied.

The next thing you know they’ll be telling us global warming will cause more snow…
Oh, wait.

    More Antarctic ice? Oh goodie – we can just ship all the polar bears to Antarctica – problem solved!

    Words fail me.

    I just heard on NPR the other day that the cost of insurance in areas affected by Katrina is high, and because there will be more storms due to global warming, it will only increase.

    They just threw it out there like it was something you can just assume is true.

    I agree that everybody’s insurance is going to go up, primarily due to inflation. The bit about the increase in storms due to global warming, not so much.

    It is the 21st century reality. The Disney reality. If you wish upon a star!

    You can be a real life Native American if Aunt Bee and Pee Paw claim to have high cheek bones!

    You can be a girl (even if you have a pee-pee) just because!

    So, why can’t warming cause more ice?

  • SeniorD

    That’s right!! Antartica is just one huge COLD SINK! Alarmists will soon re-start the ‘Earth is cooling!’ meme just to keep their 15 minutes of fame.

    There has been a climate change. .which has been occurring on this planet for millions of years. . .

    Recall the Big Earthquake and Tsunami off Indonesia one Christmas a few years back?

    Well supposedly the mass of magma that was ejected on the fault caused a 1degree shift in axis. . .
    Since ALL CLIMATE is Regulated by sunlight a 1 degree shift in tilt affects the climate greatlt.

    North got warmer and south got colder. . .plain and simple

    that is why they have had snow in Buenos Aires lately. . .

    Beware of Politicians using science. .all they want is power and money (via taxes)

    Its because the antartic is on the bottom and everyone knows hot air rises while cold air sinks. It has to be true cause Al Gore said so and all of the MSM has been preaching it. Also heard in the same report the unicorn population is endangered because the drought we are experiencing during this climate “change.” Everyone knows unicorns have to have rainbows to survive. Al Gore was also seen jetting off in his eco-friendly cooking oil buring G5 on his way to the middle east to solve all the surrounding conflicts which have been brought on by climate “change.”

    You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time, but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time(*).

    *Unless you can get all of the people to become hayseed, ah-shucks slack-jawed yokels called Democrats!

  • moron

    Well, the moisture does not come from precipitation in the Antarctic desert. Must be that global warming also causes the world to get colder!

  • Frank K.

    “The next thing you know theyll be telling us global warming will cause more snow
    Oh, wait.”

    Yes, indeed, these “scientists” are becoming all too predictable [yawn]. Winter is coming – quick, pull out the “winter = global warming” press release…

  • BuddyG

    It depends on how you define the word “is”.

  • valerie

    These “experts” aren’t the only liars. Thomas Sowell has put together a devastating exposure of Barack Obama lying about the US response to Katrina. This is how it’s done. You get all the facts together, and link them up.

    This was a US Senator lying about his activities two weeks previously.

    When all that ice builds up in Antartica, that is when our axis flips and our planet looks like uranus,
    OMG, OMG, OMG…

    I get it. It’s really not so hard.

    When the ice is melting, it’s because of global warming.

    When the ice is forming, it’s because of global warming.

    See? I get it. The scientists get it. Doesn’t everyone get it?

    If the World wildlife fund or PBS asked the nitwits to send them money to save the penguins in the ARTIC the nitwits would. A series of pictures taken in the ARTIC showing the absence of Penguins would clinch the deal. Prog teachers would be expressing their outage and encouraging their students to save the “ARTIC Penguins”.

    The ozone hole has been recovering since the late 80’s when CFC’s were banned.

    Ozone is a greenhouse gas.

    How will the oceans rise if all the damn water keeps freezing?

  • Flintstone F.

    Other lesser known facts about the climate:

    When most of the world is tropical and we all live on the beach and wear sandal’s while drinking Margarita’s, it’s going to be miserable.

    When it rains it doesn’t.

    Polar bears don’t have thumbs. Ho hum.

    Topper lived at the North Pole.

    That was 1970.

    Penguins live to about 20 years.

    Topper is dead.

    I wonder if the people writing this story realize that the increase in antarctic ice was listed as a reason to believe in global warming in the 80’s?

  • Mr. B

    This is so stupid. If they could remember their grade school science, they’d realize when it’s summer in the Northern Hemisphere it’s winter in the Southern. Now Winter is ending in Antarctica, no wonder there is more ice down there now. Much will melt as summer arrives during our winter, and then we’ll read alarmist headlines about how much ice is melting down there in the middle of February!!!

    That’s good.
