This is Summer in the Antarctic–What’s going on?

Goddard has got me confused–a while ago on a post that I did about increases in Antarctic Ice I screwed up because the report was old, from the previous winter in the Antarctic, now Goddard has me all confused on this new record cold and ice for Antarctica–this is Antarctic Summer ice? Record for Summer? I would suppose.

The date is Dec 25.

The color coded planet map shows Antarctic is dark blue? Of course I always point out its freezing down there all the time.

I need to take a nap.

  1. Records are a based on daily comps for a given day of the year based on 30 yrs of hard data. It is a bit misleading; it is not a record high, but quiet possibly the record high for this date.

  3. Some “movies” for your viewing pleasure.

  4. Cold comfort :) for the eco-tourists and grant-driven warmists marooned in the Antarctoic today – help is on the way!
