2009: Year of Record Warmth on South Pole


According to new data released by the Amundsen-Scott South Pole Station, the South Pole recorded its warmest-ever year with average temps reaching -54.2°F or -47.9°C. Records started being kept at the South Pole in 1957.

The previous record-warm temperatures were in 2002 when it hit -54.4°F. According to NASA measurements, last year was the second-warmest year on record across the globe. Global temperature records have been kept since the late 1800s.

The warmest year on record for the whole planet was 2005.

  There is no such thing as global warming  
If there is, it´s not caused by mankind. The evidence was forged, the hockey stick is bunk, and Al Gore just wants to raise your taxes to start a one-world government.

So, man made global warming supporters can use 1 years climate data to support their argument. Yet, man made global warming skeptics claimed last years mild summer as evidence but "that´s not scientific" when they do it.

Can´t have your cake and eat it too.

LOL. You people are too funny.

I´d like to say I´m looking forward to saying I told you so when the time comes but I don´t think I´ll be in the mood.

I never said the climate wasn´t on a natural cycle which results in significant geological and weather change from time to time.
  by: Sasquatches_United   05/11/2010 06:05 PM     
and I didn´t say that i´d say I told you so if it´s just a natural cycle that we are witnessing.
My implication was pretty damn clear.

  We are just helping  
We are restoring Earth´s natural balance which was disrupted when all that stuff (scientific term) got buried. We are just reintroducing these compounds back into the natural cycle.
If you are so sure that man is causing global warming, how can you live with yourself knowing that everything you do is causing it? You should do the world (literally the world) a favor and just go kill yourself in a carbon neutral fashion. Otherwise you must embrace our slow destruction of the earth.
Unless you live in a house made of dirt, kill or harvest and eat your own food without cooking it, have no sort of climate control, do not consume any manufactured goods, have no sort of climate control, have no mode of transportation other than bipedal, and pretty much live a life cut off from the outside world, you have no room to complain about global warming... at least that is the way I see it.
Just rest assured that at every moment of every day you are most likely doing at least one thing that is contributing to what you call "global warming."

Nah, Al Gore doesn´t want our money.

So you´ve actually heard people who are concerned about anthropogenic global warming say that the environment cannot tolerate even a few pounds of man-made carbon dioxide emissions?

Oh wait, I just inadvertently pointed out the straw man in that argument, didn´t I?

I like how the % or C02 we put into the atmosphere every year is minuscule to what 1 volcano does.
  by: Sasquatches_United   05/11/2010 09:22 PM     
All I was trying to say is that if someone truly believes that global warming is anthropogenic, they should be doing everything in their power to stop it. They have no right to bitch at everyone else about how their evil ways are destroying the planet when they themselves are participating in it as well.
Now I am off to dump some used oil into a nearby river because the environment can surely tolerate a few more gallons... as long as six billion other people don´t think the same way as me I think we are fine.

You´re just being difficult now ...

As always :)

  Record warmth in SP.  
I don´t how to contribute this to Global Warming but in New Jersey we had record snow falls. Last time we had snow like that was in the 1950´s. Sounds like the weather is repeating a pattern.

What happened to the Scientist that said we were heading for another Ice Age in the 70´s? If you missed that boat your in luck, their back. And you can agree with them too. That way you can´t go wrong no matter what way it swings.
Check this out.

Someone really has to make up their mind on which way we are heading.

Seems to me at best, these scientist sound like Chicken Little and quite a few of you believe the sky is falling.

  Some of you...  
Sound a bit confused.

Just ´cause it´s GLOBAL warming doesn´t necessarily mean it´ll get warmer in your area. It´s likely that you´ll see more extreme weather.
