ENVIRONMENTALISTS USE PHOTOSHOP AND FRAUD TO DECEIVE

Watts Up With That has a funny instance of warmist deception. You may have seen the headline, I did: Antarctica hits record high temperature at balmy 63.5°F. Where? Base Esperanza. Where is Base Esperanza in relation to what we normally think of as Antarctica? A long, long distance away:

Base Esperanza is close to Tiera Del Fuego and not far from Africa, so warm temperatures there are not exactly shocking. Plus, the weather phenomenon that caused the recent high temperature is well understood and has nothing to do with global warming:

Esperanza presents a prime example of how temperatures can rise dramatically without any increased input of heat. Argentina’s Esperanza weather station is situated on the most extreme equatorward tip of the Antarctic peninsula and its mean monthly temperature for March is -3.6 C. But Esperanza’s location subjects it to episodic warm northwesterly winds which is why it is also infamous for its foehn wind storms that can dramatically increase temperatures by 10 to 40 C degrees in a matter of hours.

This record 17 C (63.5 F) temperature recently recorded, is 20 C above average, and as expected the record temperature is the result of foehn winds. Foehn winds warm temperatures via adiabatic heating (no heat input) as descending winds passing over the nearby mountains warm from adiabatic compression. It is meaningless weather as regards penguins.

Now we get to the really fun part: the photo that accompanied the alarmist MSN article:

1. hah! Rush was talking about this yesterday...

Something along the lines of "LOOK! there's only enough snow left in Antarctica for 2 penguins!"
It was hilarious the way he laid it out.

3. My favorite GW story from this season

is the one about the idiots who decided the northwest passage was ice free, and decided to sail it and the return to prove it. Got trapped in the ice, had to be rescued.

4. LOL

That happens all the time.

A couple of years ago there was a ship full of glow bull warming conference attendees somewhere around Australia.

It took them a couple of weeks to break through the ice to rescue them.



LOL
