Cold Water Thrown on Antarctic Warming Predictions | LiveScience

Quote:
The new study, detailed in the April 5 issue of the journal Geophysical Research Letters, marks the first time that researchers have been able to give a progress report on Antarctic climate model projections by comparing climate records to model simulations (these comparisons have been done for the other six continents). Information about Antarctica's harsh weather patterns has traditionally been limited, but temperature records from ice cores and ground weather stations have recently been constructed, giving scientists the missing information they needed.
But, but, but, how could they make projections without the critical data to determine such conclusions?

There's plenty more.

"This is showing us that, over the past century, most of Antarctica has not undergone the fairly dramatic warming that has affected the rest of the globe," Monaghan said.
What warming has affected the rest of the globe?

Temperatures have decreased since 1998 (There IS a problem with global warming... it stopped in 1998 - Telegraph).

Also, 1998 was not the hottest year in recorded history, 1934 was (American Thinker Blog: Revised Temp Data Reduces Global Warming Fever)
