Here We Go: AP Beclowns Themselves With Story Saying AGW Causes Antarctic Ice To Grow

Yet another shark jumping incident from one of the most unhinged Warmists out there, Seth Borenstein, proving once again that science is completely missing from the Cult of Gore

(AP) 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.

And then Seth tries to spin a fantasy of greenhouse gases, which trap heat inside the Earth’s atmosphere, cause an increase of ice in Antarctica, while causing a decrease of Arctic ice. In Warmist World, there’s no possible way that this can be mostly or solely natural, no, it has to be due to the modern activities of Mankind, like using lots of energy to publish an AP story that is insane.

  • Translation: It was embarrassing us, so we’ll make something up.
  • Translation: More Ice = Warming and Less Ice = Warming. Our scam wins either way!
  • Translation: We ignored the records in 2006 and 2012 and finally a few bloggers embarrassed us so much about 2012 that we had our buddy Seth Borenstein make up some crap.
  • Translation: Clown Feet would be more appropriate.

    Yep, they pretty much say the same thing about the Artic and its loss of ice too.

    Funny that.
