Weather Notes from Both Poles


Indicators continue to show disturbing trends and real viagra without prescription unexpected events, indicating that changes are taking place in the Earth's environment. The South Pole has had its warmest year ever (since recordkeeping began in the 1950s), and the North Pole experienced unexpected rain in late April.

"My business is weird, wild and wacky weather, and this is up there among fish falling from the sky or Niagara Falls running dry," according to David Phillips, a senior climatologist with Environment Canada. "I mean, it really is how to buy viagra in ireland strange. You just don't expect it to rain in the High Arctic in April; maybe in July and August."

Phillips also indicated that over 50 years of historical weather data show "no signs of rainfall ever occurring in April in the High Arctic." The unusual rain could be an indicator of further shifts beginning to click here cialis samples take place in Arctic weather patterns due to the continuing warming of the region.

The Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station recorded the highest average annual temperature in 2009. It was also the mexico cialis second warmest year on record for overall surface temperatures on the Earth, according to NASA.

Good news is that arctic ice is actually having a VERY good year.
written by Doc Rings, May 10, 2010

April Arctic ice is just about "average" (1979-2000 average), which is most excellent. Ice extent ofr April 2010 was the largest for that month in the past decade.
There were a few areas below average, and a few areas above average.
@Doc rings: You are cherry picking the information

Typically, you are cherry picking the data.

From the same site:
changing wind patterns have caused older, thicker ice to move south along Greenland’s east coast, where it will likely melt during the summer. Temperatures in the Arctic remained above average.

And more:
Despite the late ice growth, Arctic air temperatures remained persistently warmer than average throughout the cheap cialis no prescription winter and early spring season. April temperatures were about 3 to 4 degrees Celsius (5 to 7 degrees Fahrenheit) above average across much of the Arctic Ocean, and up to 10 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) above normal in northern Canada. Conditions in the Arctic were part of a trend of warmer temperatures worldwide

So much for having a very good year!

Now down to Antarctica:

From NASA:
The continent of Antarctica has been losing more than 100 cubic kilometers (24 cubic miles) of ice per year since 2002.

The only thing I agree with you is that warming is not CO2 based.

I agree with the other comment, arctic ice is way up this year. Anomolous weather is curious, but it's hard to trend.
