Posted on 10/10/2012 3:12:04 PM PDT by Snuph
For many years, climate realists have pointed to expanding ice in Antarctica as a counter to the claim that decreasing ice in the Arctic is necessarily proof of anthropogenic global warming.
The folks at the Associated Press on Wednesday came up with an unbelievable answer to that in an article unbelievably titled "Experts: Global Warming Means More Antarctic ice":
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.
Author Seth Borenstein then predictably cited scientists supporting this truly amazing concept that anthropogenic global warming can melt ice in one hemisphere while creating it in another.
Real Science's Steve Goddard said in an email, "It is the new kind of ice which is created by heat, rather than cold."
Yes, the climate alarmists have once again concocted a "Heads we win, tails you lose" scenario.

If it’s warm, it’s Global Warming!
If it’s cold, it’s Global Warming!
Do we get to implement Socialism now?
>> “Experts: Global Warming Means More Antarctic ice”
Thanks for reminding me! I need to put some more beers in the oven to chill. :-)
To paraphrase Adam Savage: “We reject reality, and substitute our own.”
We wanted to study ground water tables and the effect of calcium deposits on them.
His adviser said his grant application should be about the effect of acid rain on calcium deposits in ground water. He got the grant.
I can see the glaciers from Baghdad. The hotter it gets the further they advance. We will be buried under a mile of ice by July.
Why not. The Obama Administration is saying that they never said the killings in Libya were caused by a videotape. Lie about everything. If Obama gets re-elected, I’m going to claim all my dogs as dependents. Then, when the IRS asks me about it I’ll say, “No I didn’t.”
“Well, it’s right here in front of us.”
“What? I don’t see anything.”
This has been an issue since at least 1848....
It raind all night the day I left,
The weather it was dry,
The sun so hot I frose to death;
Susanna, don’t you cry.
Please, no more.
We Polar bears can’t take this drown/freeze/swim/drown/freeze thing anymore, and may have to kill you all.
It's the coldest damn October I can remember.
Global Warming my butt!
Global warming is very robust with respect to data. All observations confirm it at the 100% confidence level. It is unfalsifiable. It’s literally tautological.
Seth went on to explain that Less Ice in the Artic means AGW. But more ice in the Antartic means AGW. You see Ant means opposite.
“Hide the decline” is all you need to know.
Okay, what is the Antarctic opposite, then?
I guess they will now admit that Antarctic Ice is growing.
