Antarctica Station Reports Temperatures Reaching 63.5 Degrees

240px-The_Earth_seen_from_Apollo_17The proposed cuts of the Trump Administration of the EPA has many of us deeply concerned, particularly those cuts targeting climate change offices and research.  As someone who believe that climate change is one of the greatest threats facing this planet, the evidence continues to mount that we are at or passing a tipping point.  Now, an Argentine research base near the northern tip of the Antarctic peninsula has recorded the  record temperature at 63.5° Fahrenheit (17.5 degrees Celsius).  It is an astonishing and frightening increase.

Antarctica holds 90 percent of the world’s fresh water as ice. If it were to melt, it could potentially raise sea levels by about 60 meters (200 ft).

There are legitimate questions over the best way to address the obvious evidence of climate change.  However, any cutting of research and data production at this time would be extremely harmful.  These budgets are small in comparison to the rest of the budget but they contribute immensely to our consideration of different options and policies.

  1. That high a temperature may not be all that unusual for the coastal areas of Antarctica in summer.

    If a temperature that high were registered, say at the South Pole that would be something to worry about!

  2. As Matt Stratton has correctly pointed out, this stock has already been thoroughly debunked as the fake news that it is:

    Of course, when your objective is make sure that the truth is never discussed, fake news propaganda can be an effective means of achieving that objective, as Jonathan Turley amply demonstrates.

    But the REAL question that everybody should be asking here:
    Why is Jonathan Turley Failing to Discuss Vault 7 and its Significance?

    The answer is simple. He is protecting the Elite Establishment and their corrupt government agents and tools.

    So, silence about the truth is the next best thing to hoping it goes away.

    1. Correct, Matt. Jon Turley and others of his ilk have been brainwashed. And brainwashing is a cinche for the Elite Establishment because Jon Turley was raised as a leftist when very young. Consequently, he’s been programmed to accept whatever nonsense is shoved down the pike–or downloaded directly into his consciousness.

      But for a little bit of reality on this global warming scam, Professor George Carlin offers these insights:

      1. And while I’m on the great comedic philosophers of our time, here’s a wonderful routine from A. Whitney Brown that I think is funny even if you don’t happen to agree with his premises. Today’s so-called “comedy” isn’t funny, nor is it thoughtful or memorable. It’s mostly just unimaginative vitriol with the thinnest of concept. So, without further ado, here’s A. Whitney Brown:

      2. Thick sick sad sucka rabid Right-tard Ralph and others of his ilk have been brainwashed. And brainwashing is a cinche for the BIG Corp Elite Right-tard Establishment because like Mad Mein Trumpf they were raised as Right-tards when very young. Consequently, they’re programmed to accept whatever nonsense is shoved down the FIX-NewZac Right-tard pike – or downloaded directly into their so called ‘consciousness’ de fact UNconsciousness.

        Ya’ll cum bak now real soon thick sick sad suckas.

        1. Willistina556, thanks for demonstrating yet again the mindlessness that is leftism. However, you needn’t bother to confirm that conclusion, as that is already abundantly clear.

          1. Unbalanced Ralph, another anti social self-serving rabid Right-tard Global scamster.

            Whose only so called ‘defence’ is to try and bully pro social balanced Tina.wrongly tagged as a ‘Lefty’.

            Unbalanced anti social Ralph and rabid Right-tard wrong uns like Mad Dog Mein Trumpf – Nil Water By Mouth. They never get beyond the insane skoolyard.

            Quote rabid Right-tard Mad Dog Media Monster Murdoch’s FIX NewZac (ProZac, Muzac, same shit different dogs), ” Fair & Balanced ”

            Bwaaaa HaHaHaHaHaHahaHa….

        2. The most famous global warming con artist, Al Gore, famously said on Sept. 21, 2007, that “scientists reported with unprecedented alarm that the North Polar icecap is, in their words, ‘falling off a cliff.’ One study estimated that it could be completely gone during summer in less than 22 years. Another new study to be presented by U.S. Navy researchers later this week warns that it could happen in as little as seven years, seven years from now.” But the reality is that the North Polar icecap has EXPANDED–just the opposite of what Gore (disingenuously) “predicted.”

          However, there is one very important fact about global warming that is true: global warming has heated up the bank accounts of the global warming scamsters to unprecedented “temperatures.” Al Gore’s bank account, for example, has gone from a mere $2 million “degrees” to over $200 million “degrees.” That’s a big increase in monetary heat! And that’s really what the global warming scam is all about: raising the monetary “temperatures” of the global warming insiders’ bank accounts at the expense of the taxpayers.

              NAILS Mad Dog Mein Trumpf and all anti social rabid Right-tard wrong uns – agin!

              Quote pro social ex-CIA Good Guy ‘Blaster’ Blum with LOUD hailer outside his old workplace The Pentagon, “Come OUT – with your hands UP!!”

              1. willistina556,
                I deleted my Troll Translator app awhile back and therefore have no idea what you are saying. You may want to try that post on someone else. But thanks for the effort anyway. 🙂

  3. These budgets [for climate research] are small in comparison to the rest of the budget but they contribute immensely to our consideration of different options and policies.

    They get in the way of profit.
