Stale Antarctic melting ice story from last summer suddenly goes viral on Fairfax media all over Australia

“Frozen $46m runway melting” – shouts the news on dozens of Fairfax sites from newspapers in towns large and small across our wide brown land.
This is referring to the Wilkins Aerodrome which is located about 70km SE of Casey Base and is scraped out of glacier ice about 700 metres thick.
The news of melting on the runway broke last summer – over nine months ago.
Why has the story suddenly been recycled and gone viral now ?
It is snowing and minus 9.5 degrees C at Casey this morning ?
Surely it could not be anything to do with the Govt ship Aurora Australis being icebound ? (see yesterday post below) A sort of counter story.

10 comments to Stale Antarctic melting ice story from last summer suddenly goes viral on Fairfax media all over Australia

  • Bob in Castlemaine

    Seems like the Fairfax “group thinkers” with their rehashed story are trying to deflect attention from observational evidence that doesn’t suit the authorised narrative e.g. the increasing sea ice around Antarctica.
    The fact that Casey is on the coast, and regularly sees summer temperatures well above zero should render it fairly unremarkable that some ice melt just might occur at that time of year.
    It probably didn’t hurt the Fairfax cause either that Google just happens to have one Al Gore as a “senior adviser“.

    The web cam at Casey clearly shows this serious threat… www.antarctica.gov.au/webcams/casey

    I suspect that Fairfax is gearing up for a big spread on a soon to be published scare ramp on …. ice melting, sea rising, we all perish unless we pay higher ‘carbon’ taxes, thank goodness for the Labour ‘paltry’ and praise to our saviour JG.

  • I should be shocked by the lack of journalism here but I’m not. I am shocked though at the number of papers caught out. Time Gina made another move now that their share price is at a fire-sale price, suited to breaking up of assets. Nothing new at the Fairfax AGM either according to Professor Bunyip.

    The ABC news radio is running this as a lead item (surprise!). The problem is confined to January when the ice gets warmer than minus 5 ℃.
    Runway is OK in Dec. & Feb.

    I wonder if they’ve heard of Pikecrete (ice and sawdust) ?
    Invented during WW2, and got Churchill’s interest when the inventor dumped a block into Winston’s bath and it didn’t melt. Sadly, they never got around to making the projected super aircraft carrier for the Normandy landings.

    If it only melts in January then why report it now? Clearly this is news before it happens! fortune telling by some jornos and reading tea leaves by others.
    It is now -8 degrees cold reality at by the staff at Casey and this week the team is clearing snow from the runway so that planes can land!!

    Blow me down. I was reading this post when I turned the TV to watch ABC24 news. There it was again!
    Ed. note: There you go gracco – you read the truth first here.
    here it is on ABC Online.

    Looks like they are clearing out the last of the ‘CAGW story’ archives in a final panic before the lights get switched off by the receivers.

    ….. and finish on a ‘real’ good news story of CO2 reduction !

  • Aard Knox

    Something very odd has happened to all the links in your post.
    The “.au” has dropped off the link so none of the pages will load.
    Ed note: All links still working for me Aard – 9am in Canberra.

  • Philip Bradley

    The real story here is that they have managed to make one bit of the Antarctic like the Arctic.

    Planes deposit black carbon on an Antarctic airstrip and the surface melts. Black carbon is the main reason for Arctic ice melt.
