These are just the stations deemed ‘Normals” by Environment Canada. The temperature is the departure from the 1971-2000 average in Celsius. I’m using monthly summary.

Ooops:  This post originally said “Low Min”. The values are “Low Max”.

759 Low Max Records Broken or tied in last 3 Days according to the NOAA.

Below is a screenshot showing location and the biggest difference between old record and new record.

The list is just the ones I could capture in a screenshot. Wow. Many records broken by over 20F.

Imagine … the old record was 51F and it is now 23F. A 28F difference.

Some of the records broken were over 100 years old.

Antarctica Losing 130 gigatons of ice per year (last Year it was 159 gigatons per year)

Filed under: Uncategorized — sunshinehours1 @ 3:51 PM

The Daily Mail claims that Antarctica is losing 130 gigatons of ice per year. (An earlier version of my post had a typo and said 159)

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2972611/Antarctica-s-melting-ice-changing-shape-Earth-Researchers-warn-area-ground-zero-climate-change.html

The trouble is twofold:

One … last year it was 159 gigatons per year: http://www.futurity.org/159b-tons-antarctic-ice-sheet-lost-year/

Two …

NSIDC: “The Antarctic Ice Sheet contains 30 million cubic kilometers (7.2 million cubic miles) of ice.”

A gigaton of ice is approximately one cubic kilometer of ice.

So … at 130 gigatons per year, how long before Antarctica melts? That would be 30,000,000 / 130.

 

 

230,000 years.

 

I’m guessing our interglacial will end long before that. And the ice will have stopped melting and started growing.

What the Klimate Kult doesn’t tell you is that the minute Antarctica stops melting is the moment most of humanity will start to die because that when the interglacial ends.

And it will end.

(This is a different post than the Low Min one)

Low Max records track the lowest maximum temperature for the day.

2634 Low Max Records Broken or tied From 2015-02-19 to 2015-02-25 according to the NOAA. (That is 15% of all the measurements for that period)

Below is a screenshot showing location and the biggest difference between old record and new record.

The list is just the ones I could capture in a screenshot. Wow. Many records broken by over 20F.

Imagine … the old record was 34 and it is now 3F. A 31F difference.

UPDATE #2 – Even more records have been broken.

UPDATE: I also have a blog post on the LOW MAX records.

Below is a screenshot showing location and the biggest difference between old record and new record.

The list is just the ones I could capture in a screenshot. Wow. Many records broken by over 30F.

Imagine … the old record was 15F and it is now -23F. A 38F difference.
