    Fascinating study from the University of Milwaukee which appears to heavily contradict man as a significant factor in determining the earth's climate - in fact, the study points to a shift from warming to cooling starting around the year 2000. This should have been far bigger news - but so far, the attention has been minimal by the mainstream media. Go figure...

    Link to news articles on the study, dubbed "synchronized chaos" :

    I watched a documentery on glaciers a couple of nights ago and they did time lapse photo studies on several major ice shelves and glaciers. You are missinformed, ignorant or a blatant liar.

    First, I assume you mean to say that the scientists in the linked study are misinformed, ignorant, or blatant liars.

    Second, perhaps you should enhance your understanding of the earth's climate so as not to base it entirely on a show about shelving glaciers, as that might leave you misinformed, ignorant, of even capable of being a blatant liar...

    You are aware of course that the antarctic shelving is primarily focused on a part of the western portion of the contienent, yes? An area specifically known as the Wilkins Shelf. While some warming has in fact occurred there, the vast majority of the Antarctic continent - about 95% of it - has cooled, and that the net impact of this cooling on sea levels will be to lower them. As for the Wilkins Shelf, its ice has already reformed since those now infamous 2008 viewings - but that does not make for nearly as good television now does it?

    I saw on TV a couple of nights ago where several people had their atoms scrambled, and they disappeared without any smoke or anything. Turns out, they were in a ship that was in orbit, and they reassembled intact on the planet below! They called it "beaming down" and I know it works, I SAW it!

    Awesome!

    You have destroyed HUGGY in one fell swoop!

    Now all that is left is for McCoy to declare Huggy is...

    You have been called on this idiocy many times. American Thinker is a wingnut site. Here is what NASA has to say about the warming in Antarctica;

    For a long time, it seemed that Antarctica was immune to global warming. Most of the icy southern continent, where temperatures can plummet to minus 80 degrees Celsius (-112 degrees Fahrenheit), seemed to be holding steady or even cooling as the rest of the planet warmed. But a new analysis of satellite and weather station data has shown that Antarctica has warmed at a rate of about 0.12 degrees Celsius (0.22 degrees F) per decade since 1957, for a total average temperature rise of 0.5 degrees Celsius (1 degree F).
    This image, based on the analysis of weather station and satellite data, shows the continent-wide warming trend from 1957 through 2006. Dark red over West Antarctica reflects that the region warmed most per decade. Most of the rest of the continent is orange, indicating a smaller warming trend, or white, where no change was observed. The underlying land surface color is based on the Landsat Image Mosaic of Antarctica (LIMA) data set, while the topography is from a Radarsat-based digital elevation model. Sea ice extent in the Southern Ocean surrounding the continent is based on data from the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E) collected on May 14, 2008 (late fall in the Southern Hemisphere).
    The image paints a different picture of temperature trends in Antarctica than scientists had previously observed. Limited weather station measurements had recorded a dramatic warming trend along the peninsula, which juts into warmer waters in the Southern Ocean, but the few stations that dotted the rest of the continent reported that temperatures there had not changed or had cooled. It has been difficult to get a clear picture of temperature trends throughout Antarctica because measurements are so scarce. Few weather stations exist, and most of these are near the coast where they are relatively accessible. These coastal locations left vast regions of the continentÂ’s interior where the temperature has never been monitored routinely. Satellites can measure the ground temperature of the entire continent, but only on clear days, when clouds don't obscure the view. Since satellite measurements are always taken in the same sort of weather conditions, they can be skewed.

    CO2 causes the earth to retain heat.

    That has not changed.

    We continue to pump billions of tons of CO2 into the atmosphere.

    We are in the down side of the solar cycle, so it is a little cooler than it has been. In a few years things will heat up again.
