The melting of Antarctic ice that is continuously coming to light cannot be due to air temperature. The continent has cooled significantly since 1999, according to a newly published study. One reason for this may be the cold surface temperatures in the Pacific region.
As Report 24 has already reported, citing data from a previous study, temperatures in Antarctica have been largely stable for 70 years. The mass of the Antarctic ice shelf is also increasing. The latter may also be due to the fact that temperature measuring stations have actually recorded actual cooling over the past 24 years. Therefore you will not feel any global warming at the South Pole.
The results of the current study show that surface temperatures in West Antarctica have declined by more than 1.8 degrees Celsius from 1999 to 2018. Colds across most of the rest of Antarctica were mostly between -1 °C. Only a small part recorded a slight increase in temperature. The researchers also found that cold surface temperatures in the eastern and central Pacific Ocean (south of 25°N) may have played a role in this relationship.
Overall, this shows once again that the climate issue is more complex than the climate fanatics want us to believe with their greenhouse gas madness. Because if increasing concentrations of CO2 in the atmosphere are indeed believed to be the cause of higher temperatures, why not in the far south of our planet?
