Big freeze in Antarctic all part of warming, scientists say

Readers sent me this example of utter bunkum from the NZ (New Zealand) Herald today – those long islands out east of Australia. The text by Seth Borenstein is pretty much here.
The dear old NZ Herald is owned by the Australian FAIRFAX MEDIA LIMITED (FXJ) – their share price seems on a rapid journey to corporate oblivion.
freezing is warming
So we now know – warming is all “part of warming” –
adjustments by IPCC compliant scientists are all “part of warming” –
bad weather is all “part of warming” –
presumably good weather is all “part of warming” –
and now the Big freeze in Antarctic all “part of warming” –
must be true – the Herald says in a big headline – “scientists say”.
Google can not yet find the article at any Australian Fairfax presses but we will keep checking. Maybe they do not want to insult their readers too blatantly as a cold snap chills the south-east of Australia.

  1. Some other observations suggesting the carbon dioxide tax is starting to work here in central Victoria as well. We encountered heavy snow near Daylesford around 2PM on AFL grand on final day (29 Sep). Snow at the end of September in this area is by now means unique, but it is unusual.
    However, when you add to this the fact that spring floral blooms here are between two and three weeks late, then I think we have to acknowledge this as clear proof the tax is working.

  2. Aw shucks, there was I relying on Antarctica being the “last inhabitable continent” once global warming took hold, and now we find out warming will actually make it colder. Maybe there is somewhere in between. Could the South Island of New Zealand become inhabitable, or will it be just as boring as ever in 2100?

    On a serious note – if you can take any of this nonsense seriously – the article says wind patterns are pushing Antarctic ice further north. No doubt that’s true. It’s equally true that wind patterns are the main reason for reduced Arctic sea ice this year, though you would never know from the MSM.
