Antarctica Warmer Than Utah?

On March 24, the temperature was 63.5°F at Argentina’s Esperanza Base, located near the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula. The Salt Lake City high temperature was 57 degrees the same day.

[T]he poles are warming faster than any part of the planet and rapid ice melt is being observed at increased rates in Antarctica. According to a new study, ice shelves in West Antarctica have lost as much as 18 percent of their volume over the last two decades, with rapid acceleration occurring over the last decade.

…While the polar regions are feeling the most severe temperature changes brought on by the rise in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, areas across the globe are setting record highs at a much faster rate than record lows. Since 2010, 46 nations or territories out of 235 have set or tied record highs. Only four have set record lows.

“So it is a bad year for the Earth and an equally bad year for the politicians, talk show radio ‘scientists’, climate-denial funders, and second rate scientists who told us not to worry,” as climate expert Professor John Abraham told me. “They told us global warming had stopped nearly two decades ago. The problem is, science and climate change marched forward. Perhaps next time we will believe the real scientists.”

    Antarctica warmer then Utah? That’s scary, considering Utah’s been way too warm this winter. Pretty soon they’ll be banning terms like “global warming”. What, you say they already have.
