Antarctic continent immune from Global Warming

No significant changes seen in more than 70 years.

Satellite measurements show stable temperatures in the Antarctic since 1979.

However, with HADCRUT data, the period of stable temperatures can be further extended back to 1957.

The the trend line is stable, no significant changes are seen in over 70 years other than the Classic natural oscillations.

“The Antarctic continent has remained thus immune from Global Warming?” asks this articl.

  1. Since the Antarctic was supposed to be melting away this is another global warming fail. Can anyone think of anything they have got right?

  2. There is water ice at Mercury’s polar regions, so the answer is a resounding YES Antarctica is immune from global warming. Earth is a much bigger planet with far less warmth from the Sun therefore it’s only logical to assume that the Earth will have a massive volume of ice build up at it’s poles, considering the vast amount of liquid water in the oceans and water vapour in the atmosphere. Only 1C between water and ice! Antarctica is a continent, with no such land mass at the North Pole, therefore only temporary ice formation, because the warm ocean currents keep melting the Arctic ice from underneath, in the same way warmth from undersea volcanic vents warms the edges of the Antarctic Peninsula, speeding up the calving of glaciers from time to time. Simple science is best…..leave all the complex Alice in Blunderland science to the Alexanders in society (Alexander Dumas (Dumbass)) geddit?

    • Mercury has no atmosphere. It is totally illogical to compare it with earth in any department, especially global warming. Mercury’s poles are a constant -173°C. Mercury is tidally or gravitationally locked with the Sun in a 3:2 resonance,[14] and rotates in a way that is unique in the Solar System. As seen relative to the fixed stars, it rotates on its axis exactly three times for every two revolutions it makes around the Sun.[b][15] As seen from the Sun, in a frame of reference that rotates with the orbital motion, it appears to rotate only once every two Mercurian years. An observer on Mercury would therefore see only one day every two years.

      • Hear, hear, Jimmy. Only someone clutching at straws would compare Mercury to Earth. Hey, but that’s what warmists do, they clutch at straws. They never bother to check the facts.

    • Hi, Bill. Earth normally has ice-free poles. For about 200 million years a billion years ago, and for 30 million years from 460-430 million years ago, and for 90 million years from 350-260 million years ago, Earth was abnormally cold and had icecaps, and of course for the last 2-3 million years we’ve had icecaps — but for about 3.2 Billion of the last 4 Billion years, Earth has been too warm for permanent, year-round ice anywhere on the planet.

      Icecaps mean ice age, meaning abnormal conditions, specifically abnormally cold.

      One day Earth will return to normal, and the poles will melt.

  3. Turkey, 25-09-2016: ARDAHAN
    Ardahan in Damal, towards closing springs transportation after the snowfall that trapped 30 citizens returned to their villages with the help of the team reported.
    Provincial Disaster and Emergency Directorate (AFAD) team responsible Euphrates Ors, AA correspondent, said he wanted help from the Special Provincial Administration and AFAD teams snowfall in the village springs yesterday was Arapy depending on the county due to the stranded citizens with tools for opening the way to closing.
    AFAD and the Special Provincial Administration teams that transfers opened the back access road closed to the public intervention Ors, “developed here shortage suddenly, so was caught unprepared citizens snow victims. Therefore, the way they want to help by ilerlemeyin. Because the return could not do it. We helped 30 citizens, 9, drive they returned to the village in a healthy way. ” said.
    Anvil of snow in the area due to the high position, he said reaching up to 13 centimeters.

    • roger o , I think it’s about who’s looking where, It melts where there are Volcano’s , the rest is maintaining and some areas moving past old maximum lines. So probably growing. Watch the sunspot count here on the left, when it hits about 25 sunspots or more it’ll start warming up and melting again, otherwise ,Burrr. I think I heard John Casey say something like that.

  4. Any serious melting was caused by Meridional weather activity blowing much warmer water much further south under the floating Ice fields, or Geological rifting under the Western Ice cap which caused glacier base warming and free water to speed up the flow of ice to the sea over time.
    All part of the cyclic climate the earth has experiences since Antarctica gained an Ice Cap with the opening of the Drake Passage many millions of years ago.

  5. Agree entirely about the geo thermal heating, but disagree about the level of Sun spot and the energy they produce. This cycle 24 has averaged around 55 wolf sized spots. It takes 10 years for the change from warm and dry to Cold and Wet to become locked into the fossil records, that period is up in 2018.
    The next cycle according the solar community with the exception of those on What’s up site are suggesting a much lower average for SC25. It may start to return to more “normal” output levels sometime after 2056. I should be 106 by then, so I doubt I’ll get to feel it!

  6. From what I’ve heard it’s actually getting colder, and the sea surface anomaly maps I’ve seen would agree with that.
