All the media of course focuses on the Antarctic when it suits them, despite the fact that there has been no appreciable rise in temperature there over the past 30 years, which seems to indicate all of these ice shelf losses have arisen from other factors (but let's not permit the facts to get in the way of a good scare story):
Whereas the Catlin Arctic Survey team (see here
) are wishing that they hadn't packed their bermuda shorts and sun screen and are discovering that it is "stupidly cold
" in the Arctic. Also, that the RSS temperature data show the March Arctic temperature below the 30 year average
. So for comparison, here is the list of news articles reporting those stories:
- Er, ...
- That's it.
And who said the media was biased?
