RSS satellites Lower Troposphere 35 year trend map shows Australia warming less than surrounding oceans

Bearing in mind the satellite data is collected from a layer just above the surface where the BoM finds such rapid warming. Worth a ponder.
Reading the media – who would have expected this?

  1. the temperature in the atmosphere is three-dimensional – satellite makes from distance ONLY two-dimensional infrared photo; big deal – it’s misleading!!!

  2. the Northern hemisphere has warmed more than the southern hemisphere generally. And look, the Antarctic has cooled ( bi-polar see-saw perhaps?)

    and where is that section of Antarctic peninsula that was meant to be melting and under threat. There is a cold anomaly there?

    As some geologists have suggested , possible underground volcanic activity neat the peninsula?

  3. The cool Southern Ocean SSTs around Antarctica is what you would expect from the albedo effect of increasing sea ice. A rather potent positive (cooling) feedback.

    Some interesting recent articles on how multiple periods of rapid warming and cooling occur at the start and end of inter-glacials.

  4. on moist of Antarctic the temp is below -70C, which means: the temp on the planet needs to get by 71C warmer, for the ice on Antarctic to ”START” melting from the heat –
    which means: in equatorial regions the temp would have being 106C – that is 6C above water boiling point… does it make sense?:
