USING STATISTICS TO 'WARM' A COOLING SOUTH POLE

January 31, 2009: "Climate change's Antarctic ruffle" by Lawrence Solomon, National Post, Toronto, Canada.

"the U. S. government has maintained a scientific base at the South Pole since 1957 at which temperatures have been continuously measured. The temperature readings show a cooler climate over the past half century... various weather stations in Antarctica record cooler temperatures. Moreover, satellite readings of temperatures above Antarctica show a cooling trend."

""How do the authors reconcile the conclusions in their paper [that Antartica is really warming, contrary to the measurements] with the cooler than average long-term sea-surface temperature anomalies off of the coast of Antarctica?" asked Roger Pielke, senior scientist at the University of Colorado in Boulder, in noting one of several failings in the study."

Yet, some say all this is wrong and the Antartic is really warming after all - read the whole piece.
