Too bad you can't prove any of that

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

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.

So the Antarctic Peninsula is representative of the entire Antarctic?

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

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.

Ah good, I see we do use the same research source.

I realised that as we are talking about sea ice, I should have given ocean temperature, which I then did.

As to volcanoes and geothermal heat, they have been there for many thousands of years, as has the ice.

Just more denier straw grasping.

"motheaten", a sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liar, has no science chemistry astronomy physics algebra & pre-calc in an excellently earned high school diploma or science & mathematics degrees to determine that Antarctic volcanic activity has increased to cause recent Antarctic warming. However, present man-made non-phase change infra-red energy absorbing GHGs, with primary & secondary feedbacks, plus phase change infra-red energy absorbing water vapor with primary & secondary feedbacks already account for Earth warming.

"motheaten" has no ability to support its sleepy sleazy slimy steenking toxic topix AGW denier liar position.

You have the link wrong.

http://www.antarctica.ac.uk/press/press_relea...

Your link itself debunks your claim; no need to look elsewhere.

This eruption occurred close to Pine Island Glacier on the West Antarctic Ice Sheet. The flow of this glacier towards the coast has speeded up in recent decades and it may be possible that heat from the volcano has caused some of that acceleration. However, it cannot explain the more widespread thinning of West Antarctic glaciers that together are contributing nearly 0.2mm per year to sea-level rise. This wider change most probably has its origin in warming ocean waters.

You are one. Then you can't help but lie muddily.

Nope... he's got two tricks. One is the jibber-jabber posts. The other is to put Judge-It icons on everyone.

But actually contributing? Nope. Just a troll to ignore.

Actually, not at all-- unless they can tell us about the condition of all the sea floor surfaces.

Do they? Otherwise, on what do they base that conclusion?
