Today’s fake news story comes from Greenpeace.

The supposed record comes from Esperanza. As Jim Steele at WUWT points out, Esperanza is at the northern tip of the Antarctic peninsula, at a latitude of 63.4S, just about as far outside the Antarctic Circle as you could get.

And as WUWT also points out, the temperature was purely the product of a fohn wind.

The temperature of 63.5F was actually set in March 2015, but has only just been officially confirmed by the WMO. As the Capital Weather Gang at the Washington Post noted at the time, the previous record of 62.8F was also set at Esperanza as far back as 1961.

The implication now is that “balmy” temperatures of 63F are unheard of Antarctica, which is clearly nonsense.

And as we can see, monthly average temperatures in March 2015 were not in the…

Antarctic Peninsula Has Been Cooling For Almost 20 Years, Scientists Confirm

From the department of “Global Warming settled science”…

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

One of the big climate lies is that the Antarctic Peninsula is one of the fastest warming places on Earth. (The key word here is “IS”)

This naturally leads on to propagation of the melting glaciers scare.

As I have shown before, for instance here, temperatures rose there from the time when we started measuring temperatures in the 1950s till the 1980s. However, since then temperatures have stopped rising.

Now, a new study by researchers from the British Antarctic Survey confirm that temperatures on the Antarctic Peninsula have actually been falling since the late 1990s.

This is the press release from Science Daily:

The Antarctic Has Been Warmer Than Now For Most Of The Last 8000 Years

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

A paper recently published attempts to measure the relationship between ice accumulation and temperature in Antarctica for the last 31000 years.

The study is based in West Antarctica. I won’t go into the details, which were covered by WUWT here. But what was interesting were the temperature graphs included, based on ice cores.

We can see that for most of the time since the end of the ice age temperatures have been much higher than now. We can also clearly see the sharp drop coinciding with the LIA, and that temperatures were similar to now in the MWP.

We are continually told that humans are pushing the earth’s climate into unknown territory, but once again we see this is not true. As far as the Antarctic is concerned, all the evidence points to the 20thC rise in temperatures being no more than a natural recovery…

CNN Goes Full Propaganda On CO2

A team led by Ala Khazendar of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, found evidence of the ice shelf flowing faster and becoming more fragmented. The flow is creating large cracks in the ice shelf.

“These are warning signs that the remnant is disintegrating,” Khazendar said in a NASA press release. “Although it’s fascinating scientifically to have a front-row seat to watch the ice shelf becoming unstable and breaking up, it’s bad news for our planet.”

The collapse of the Larsen B Ice Shelf seems to have been caused by a series of warm summers on the Antarctic Peninsula, which happen during what in the Northern Hemisphere are winter months. Those trends built up to a particularly warm summer in 2002, according to NASA.

With snowfall blanketing NSW ski fields a month before the official start of the snow season, Andrew Bolt takes a look back at past snow fall predictions, made by our most revered climate experts, and checks how they’re holding up …

via Andrew Bolt Blog – Herald Sun :

Does the CSIRO still stick by its prediction?

Do not question the science!

The warmist CSIRO, August 2003:


Simulations of future snow conditions in the Australian alpine regions were prepared for the years 2020 and 2050…

Conclusion:

The low impact scenario for 2020 has a minor impact on snow conditions. Average season lengths are reduced by around five days. Reductions in peak depths are usually less than 10%, but can be larger at lower sites (e.g. Mt Baw Baw and Wellington High Plains).

The high impact scenario for 2020 leads to reductions of 30-40 days in average season lengths.  At higher sites such as Mt Hotham, this can represent reductions in season duration of about 25%, but at lower sites such as Mt Baw Baw the reduction can be more significant (up to 60%)…

We have very high confidence (at least 95%) that the low impact scenarios will be exceeded and the high impact scenarios will not be exceeded.

Reality, 2015: 

Hopes of bumper season as 15cm of snow covers Perisher’s slopes with more falls predicted.

All around the world, warmists were once predicting the end of snow:

2000 – a prediction from the centre of global warming alarmism:
According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia, within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”.

“Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.


2000:
a prediction from Professor Mojib Latif of Germany’s GEOMAR Heimholtz Centre for Ocean Research:

Winters with strong frosts and lots of snow like we had 20 years ago will no longer exist at our latitudes.

2008 – another prediction:

A study of snowfall spanning 60 years has indicated that the Alps’s entire winter sports industry could grind to a halt through lack of snow….

Ever since we’ve actually seen amazing snow dumps, especially in the US.

UPDATE

The Australian Antarctic Division gets more reason to doubt the polar-caps-are-melting scare:

Record Antarctic sea ice is forcing scientists to consider relocating research bases as they struggle to cope.

Satellite observations show a new daily record being set for ­Antarctic sea ice every day for the past two weeks. Annual records have also been broken every year for the past three years.

Rob Wooding, general manager of the Australian Antarctic Division’s Operations Branch, said expanding sea ice was now causing serious problems. Last year, fuel supplies were flown to Australia’s Mawson base by helicopter because the harbour had failed to clear. Dr Wooding said the situation was “unsustainable”…

Seasonal growth in Antarctic sea ice is now under way and is expected to peak at another record level in September… Recent research had also shown the ice is thicker than previously thought.

At least warmist scientist Chris Turney has stayed away this year, having learned that the world isn’t following his warming script:

IT began as a journey to “investigate the impact of changing climate” and to “use the subantarctic islands as thermometers of climatic change” but more than 70 global warming activists, journalists and crew, led by University of NSW professor of climate change Chris Turney, are now trapped by millions of tonnes of ice after their ship was caught in freezing conditions off the Antarctic coast.

Record Antarctic sea ice is forcing scientists to consider relocating research bases as they struggle to cope.

Satellite observations show a new daily record being set for ­Antarctic sea ice every day for the past two weeks. Annual records have also been broken every year for the past three years.

Rob Wooding, general manager of the Australian Antarctic Division’s Operations Branch, said expanding sea ice was now causing serious problems.

Last year, fuel supplies were flown to Australia’s Mawson base by helicopter because the harbour had failed to clear. Dr Wooding said the situation was “unsustainable”.

He said it was possible for the Aurora Australis icebreaker to break through a certain amount of sea ice to enter the harbour, and the planned capability of a replacement icebreaker would increase the ability to do this.

But conditions experienced last year of thick sea ice, with snow cover, extending out 40 to 50km could not regularly be navigated by any Antarctic resupply vessel.

There is, in fact, so much Antarctic sea ice that Australia is not only considering moving it’s research bases, but is also currently in a tender process for a new ice breaker !

TEMPERATURE ~ The biggest dud-prediction of all :

There has been no atmospheric global warming, at all, over the past 18 years, or for over half of the entire satellite record. This inconvenient lack of warming despite 35% of all human CO2 emissions, since 1751, emitted over roughly the same 18 year period.

Since 2002, the lower troposphere, where warming is measured and what global warming theory is based on, has been in fact, on a slight cooling trend.

Australia Getting Slammed With Cold And Snow

Climatism:

Love it how the alarmist media; ABC, Fairfax, blame Australia’s current record cold winter on this “Antarctic Polar Vortex” a la the “Polar Vortex” in the NH winter just gone (that one actually blamed on “Global Warming”!).

They use the extreme language to reassure the gullible and themselves that really cold winters are freak events, nothing to see here, and you’re all still gonna fry.

Originally posted on Real Science:

In case you were wondering why alarmists aren’t talking about Australia any more. Temperatures are running well below normal, with lots of snow in the mountains.

Spectacular Antarctic Lies To Start The Morning

Real Science

ScreenHunter_8159 Mar. 31 10.22

Need another indicator of climate warming in Antarctica? The trio of weather bloggers at Weather Underground report the temperature there likely hit a record-breaking 63.5F (17.5C) Tuesday.

The balmy reading was logged at Argentina’s Esperanza Base, which lies on the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula.

Irrespective of whether the record stands, it fits right into the pattern of rapid climate warming recently observed in the Antarctic Peninsula region. The British Antarctic Survey writes this region has warmed about 5F (2.8 C) in the last 50 years. “[This] makes this the most rapidly warming region in the Southern Hemisphere – comparable to rapidly warming regions of the Arctic,” it notes.

Antarctica may have set its highest temperature ever recorded Tuesday – The Washington Post

What a total crock from Jason Samenow at the Capital Weather Gang. Temperatures at the Antarctic Peninsula have been declining for 35 years.

In 1981, experts blamed loss of Antarctic sea ice on global warming

EVIDENCE IS FOUND OF WARMING TREND
By ROBERT REINHOLD, Special to the New York Times
Published: October 19, 1981

To measure possible changes around the Antarctic ice pack, where ground stations are sparse, the Columbia team compared recent satellite photographs of the extent of the ice pack with old Soviet and American atlases and with whaling ship reports from 1929 to 1934.

They found that the typical summer ice pack had decreased about 35 percent, by 2.5 million square kilometers, or about 1 million square miles from 1973 to 1980. The Antarctic ice cover was also found to be considerably lighter than shown in atlases published in 1957 and 1966 and in the ship reports from the 1930’s. This was taken as an indirect measure of higher temperatures.
