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

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the federal government agency for scientific research in Australia. It was founded in 1926 originally as the Advisory Council of Science and Industry.
In the field of climate science, the CSIRO has historically leant towards the alarmist side of the climate debate. One example shows the CSIRO using sea level rise figures far in excess of even the IPCC.
In its 2012 report, State of the Climate, the CSIRO says that since 1993 sea levels have risen up to 10mm a year in the north and west. That means that somewhere has had a 19cm-rise in sea level since 1993. Where is this place? The European satellite says that sea levels have been constant for the past eight years.
In 2013, the CSIRO commissioned a study that found “Deserts ‘greening’ from rising carbon dioxide: Green foliage boosted across the world’s arid regions.”
The ‘greening’ of deserts, thanks to rising CO2, happens to be a very unwelcome message for the environmental movement and apparently now too for the CSIRO. So this week, the CSIRO removed the study from its website.
Australia’s premier scientific agency, the CSIRO, not interested in sharing scientific discovery, rather adhering to a type of selective thinking with a tendency to notice and to look for what confirms to their beliefs, and to ignore, not look for, or undervalue the relevance of what contradicts those beliefs. Also known as ‘Confirmation Bias’.
The CSIRO claim they “protect the integrity of science by upholding the highest standards of practice.”
Does deleting or censoring studies that are favourable to plant food, carbon dioxide, do anything to “protect the integrity of science” as laid out in their agenda?
Yet another example of why government funded scientific organisations like the CSIRO have – tragically – become almost the last places to hear the truth about climate change and the environment. Too much money and too many reputations are now at stake.
The CSIRO’s peer-reviewed study can be found at Science Daily:
The CSIRO contacted me via twitter with location of study:
Makes it a little tricky for the interested to track down when no link presents on any search engine. Conveniently archived perhaps.
UPDATE 15/8/2016 :
After conveniently “archiving” their 3 JULY 2013 study : “Deserts ‘greening’ from rising CO2” – CSIRO have now reinstated it on their website!

Not the first time the UN commissars have touted communism as the way forward to a clean ‘China’ style environment…
Lima, Peru—Evo Morales, the president of the Plurinational Republic of Bolivia, is a superstar politician here at the 20th Conference of the Parties (COP-20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. The press gaggle follows him around like puppies and enthusiastically applauds his unrelenting diatribes against rich industrialized countries. The headline is a quotation taken from Morales’ response to being asked at a press conference if he was optimistic about the summit meeting here in Lima? “The deep causes of global warming are not being dealt with here. The origin of global warming lies in capitalism,” asserted Morales. “If we could end capitalism then we would have a solution.”

Suggesting impending climate doom, headlines have been trumpeting polar bears are “barely surviving” and “bears are disappearing” prompted by a press release hyping the paper Polar bear population dynamics in the southern Beaufort Sea during a period of sea ice decline (hereafterBromaghin 2014), which based on an ongoing US Geological Survey (USGS) study. Dr. Susan Crockford rightfully criticized the media’s fear mongering and failure to mention increasing bear abundance since 2008 here. She also pointed out that modelers have consistently failed to account for the negative impacts of heavy springtime ice here.
I want to reinforce Crockford’s posts, plus argue the problem is much worse than she suggested. Bromaghin 2014’s purported 25 to 50% population decline is simply

I think nothing more sums up the fraud of CAGW (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming) than the disaster of Professor Chris Turney from the University of NSW mounting the largest Australian science expedition to the Antarctic (since Mawson). Packing an 85-person team, trying to answer questions about how global warming in the frozen continent might be shifting weather patterns in Australia, only to get frozen solid, costing the Australian taxpayer millions and millions of dollars.
Oh the Irony.

Don’t believe everything you read – especially about the supposed link between global warming and natural disasters.
Environmental studies professor Roger Pielke Jr. wrote a superlative blog post yesterday. This is how it ends:
Misleading public claims. An over-hyped press release. A paper which neglects to include materially relevant and contradictory information central to its core argument. All in all, just a normal day in climate science!
Those of us who take the trouble to delve into the bewildering world of climate change soon discover a wheelbarrow full of questionable practices and sloppy research. That doesn’t invalidate the entire field, but it does give one tremendous pause.
If I thought the fate of the planet hinged on the work I was doing, I’d be bending over backward to meet the highest standards possible. I’d triple-check my math. I’d use widely recognized procedures – rather than making up new ones. I’d …

PORTAGE GLACIER, ALASKA — As she marvelled at the site of a shrinking Alaska glacier, the newly installed leader of the Environmental Protection Agency said Monday that the president told her that fighting climate change should be her primary focus.
“The president’s main priority for me was to recognize when I was coming in here that this is going to be a significant challenge and one in which the administration was going to begin to tackle,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy.
Only a complete imbecile (i.e. Barack Obama) would believe that he could stop interglacial processes which have been going on for 20,000 years.
Sierra Club in need of a refresher course on the History and Geography of Glacier Bay Park, as documented by their founder John Muir, well before the SUV was invented
Obama is right, the climate changes and climate change is real:
As you enter Glacier Bay in Southeast Alaska you will cruise along shorelines completely covered by ice just 200 years ago.
Explorer Captain George Vancouver found Icy Strait choked with ice in 1794, and Glacier Bay was barely an indented glacier. That glacier was more than 4000 ft. thick, up to 20 miles or more wide, and extended more than 100 miles to the St.Elias Range of mountains.
By 1879 naturist John Muir found that the ice had retreated 48 miles up the bay. By 1916 the Grand Pacific Glacier headed Tarr inlet 65 miles from Glacier Bay’s mouth.
The glacier that filled Glacier Bay during the Little Ice Age began its retreat from the mouth of the bay more than 200 years ago and has exposed a magnificent fjord system about 100 km long. The massive glacier retreated past Sitakaday Narrows ~190 years ago, retreated past Whidbey Passage ~160 years ago, and reached the upper end of the main bay by 1860 (~140 years ago). There the glacier bifurcated and the multibeam data set terminates. The amount of fine sediment reaching the lower bay is largely restricted to local runoff and plankton debris. In addition, the currents through Sitakaday Narrows can be as fast as 7 kt, scouring the bottom of fine sediment. So a long history of morphologies is clearly visible on the bottom.
Are Sierra Club members aware of the extreme glacial retreats and significant climatic changes observed by their founder John Muir in the 19th century? Or like all global warming cult members, are they brainwashed into believing that the climate began in 1976?
It must have been Fred Flintstone’s SUV that ruined the glaciers.
in my opinion future investigation will uncover proofs of the existence in the earlier ages of Sierra Nevada ice, of vast glaciers which flowed to the very foot of the range. Already it is clear that all of the upper basins were filled with ice so deep and universal that but few of the highest crests and ridges were sufficiently great to separate it into individual glaciers, many of the highest mountains having been flowed over and rounded like the boulders in a river. Glaciers poured into Yosemite by every one of its cañons, and at a comparatively recent period of its history its northern wall, with perhaps the single exception of the crest of Eagle Cliff, was covered by one unbroken flow of ice, the several glaciers having united before they reached the wall.
Obama calls people climate change ‘deniers’ because he wants to prove to the world and his estranged father that he and his unelected eco-fascist EPA, armed with economy wrecking draconian emissions controls, can change the climate and stop the interglacial process which has been going on for 20,000 years.
