Academia and the scientific community have a history of glomming onto a premise and sticking to it, no matter the problems it presents or the evidence against it. Darwinism is a good case in point.
Creationists are glued to their delusions regardless of evidence.

Oh settled science is based on evidence, LOL.

Odd that the self destruction to the environment by the species is contra Darwinian self preservation- not sure how the species could be destroying itself while trying to preserve itself

Don't lie but cut out food waste..

"If food was as expensive as a Ferrari, we would polish it and look after it."

Instead, we waste staggering amounts.

So says Professor Per Pinstrup-Andersen, head of an independent panel of experts advising the UN's Food and Agricultural Organization on how to tackle the problem.

Some 40% of all the food produced in the United States is never eaten. In Europe, we throw away 100 million tonnes of food every year.

And yet there are one billion starving people in the world.

The FAO's best guess is that one third of all food produced for human consumption is lost or wasted before it is eaten.

Of course, "NOT ice scientist" ain't no scientist, or it would know AGW scientists predicted increased Antarctic sea ice in 2002, confirmed in 2005 & as sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liars continually point out, as if it wasn't an AGW scientists' prediction.

Great post!
Science moves on; denial doesn't.

Much attention is paid to melting sea ice
in the Arctic. But less clear is the
situation on the other side of the planet.
Despite warmer air and oceans, there’s
more sea ice in Antarctica now than in
the 1970s – a fact often pounced on by
global warming skeptics. The latest
numbers suggest the Antarctic sea ice
may be heading toward a record high
this year.
While changes in weather may play a big
role in short-term changes in sea ice
seen in the past couple of months,
changes in winds have apparently led to
the more general upward sea ice trend
during the past few decades, according
to University of Washington research. A
new modeling study to be published in
the Journal of Climate shows that
stronger polar winds lead to an increase
in Antarctic sea ice, even in a warming
climate.

1: GLOBAL warming is NOT uniform. Nor needs to be.

2: the warming of antarctic ocean currents is somewhat moderated by the ice melt they cause.

3: The heat capacity of water is larger than air so changes in water temperature are more significant than air temperature.

4: You pulled that number out of your @ss anyway.

Since records began, 50 years ago, mean
annual temperatures on the Antarctic
Peninsula have risen rapidly [ Turner, et al.,
2005; Vaughan, et al., 2001; Vaughan, et al.,
2003 ]. A total increase in mean annual air
temperatures, of around 2.8 °C makes this the most rapidly warming region in the Southern Hemisphere – comparable to rapidly warming regions of the Arctic.

Globally from 1955 to 1995, oceans have been
warming at 0.1°C per decade. In contrast, the
Southern Ocean (specifically the region where
Antarctic sea ice forms) has been warming at
0.17°C per decade.

So the Antarctic Peninsula is representative of the entire Antarctic?

And as for the peninsula... whole lot of underwater volcanoes round them parts..

http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2004/05/...

And as a bonus... from your site:
Press Release - First evidence of under-ice volcanic eruption in Antarctica
Issue date: 20 Jan 2008
Number: 02/2008

http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/bas_research/scie...

Check the date... every one of the references in your link occurs BEFORE this discovery, so there is no way the could account for the effect of said volcanoes.

OMG! Could melting ice be caused by natural events? Warmist will be quick not say not so... break out that rolodex!... we gotta have a study handy to "debunk" this one.

Oh crap U.S. Actually cooler over the last 10 years. (.04). Guess all the fires storms crime in the U.S. Were caused by something else.
