Antarctica Finally Starting To Melt

One of the thorns in the side of the theory of Anthropogenic Global Warming has been Antarctica, which has given conflicting signals over the past few decades. In fact, one previous study:

...even suggested that parts of Antarctica were cooling in recent decades while the rest of the globe was warming.

However, the results of the most recent surveys are unequivocal:

Warm temperatures melted an area of western Antarctica that adds up to the size of California in January 2005, scientists report [see yellow and orange area in above figure].

Satellite data collected by the scientists between July 1999 and July 2005 showed clear signs that melting had occurred in multiple distinct regions, including far inland and at high latitudes and elevations, where melt had been considered unlikely.

One by one the deniers counter-arguments are being answered.

As it obviously hasn't struck you yet, localized temperature patterns in Antarctica prove precisely NOTHING about anthropogenic warming.

Can you explain the WHY?

Prominent Scientists Reverse Belief in Man-made Global Warming...

The names included below are just a sampling of the prominent scientists who have spoken out recently to oppose former Vice President Al Gore, the United Nations, and the media driven “consensus” on man-made global warming.

The list below is just the tip of the iceberg. A more detailed and comprehensive sampling of scientists who have only recently spoken out against climate hysteria will be forthcoming in a soon to be released U.S. Senate report. Please stay tuned to this website, as this new government report is set to redefine the current climate debate.

In the meantime, please review the list of scientists below and ask yourself why the media is missing one of the biggest stories in climate of 2007.
