Antarctic Ice Thicker Than Previously Thought,

“Previous studies suggested the ice was usually 3 to 6 feet (1 to 2 m) thick”

“The robot sub surveys, which were spot-checked by drilling and shipboard tests, suggest Antarctica’s average ice thickness is considerably higher than previous estimates.

‘On average, the thickness of the ice was 4.6 to 18 feet (1.4 to 5.5 m). In the three regions it surveyed, the robot sub found that deformed, thickened ice accounted for at least half of and as much as 76 percent of the total ice volume, the researchers report.”

NOAA October 2014 – Amazing Divergence Between USA and Global

Update: Global is LAND temperatures, not LAND and OCEAN combined because of course the USA is not an ocean.

Wow.This is NOAA Global versus NOAA USA Tmax for October only.

What an amazing divergence over the last 30 years.

When the AGW cult says the USA is only 2% of the globe, remind them that USA and Global temperatures used to track pretty closely.
