Perhaps you recently noticed it, while browsing through a search engine. Numerous articles dated the 24th, 25th, or 26th of September 2023 exclaimed that Antarctica had its largest temperature rise in known history. This included Newsweek Magazine. The many similar headlines made it instantly seem that, at the end of Antarctica's coldest time of the year --- in September 2023 --- Antarctica underwent its highest temperature rise ever known to mankind, in a week-long heat wave.
The great deception here was that each one of those September 24, 25, or 26, 2023 Antarctic heat rise news reports was referring to the Antarctic heat rise that occurred during the end of the Antarctic SUMMER of 2022 --- during March of 2022 --- one and a half years ago --- toward the end of the hottest time of the year for the South Pole.
Those headlines and their affixed dates made it appear that a heat wave is invading Antarctica during its winter. That's as good as telling people that the End of the World is here. Thus, if you saw those September headlines while you were in a rush, you got deceived intentionally. After all, the common person would think that a news report dated September 25th, 2023, is reporting something that happened in late September of 2023 . . . and NOT during March of 2022.
Six months of darkness. Yet, the news reports are headlined with sunny daylight photos.
The supreme asininity of reporting on Antarctica in the wintertime, in trying to tell people that massive ice loss is evident there, consists in the fact that there actually are 6 consecutive months of darkness in Antarctica. This is because the sun's orange globe is never seen above the horizon. So, how can you confidently report on a massive place losing massive amounts of ice if you can't even see the massive place?
Antarctica is a massive place that is dark for six consecutive months. Do you understand, yet? If you see a sunny daylight photo of ice melting on water, then you are not looking at Antarctica in the wintertime. Chances are that you are viewing a summertime photo. So, why are there so many Antarctic wintertime ice-melt news articles headlined by sunny daylight photos of ice plates melting on water?
This deception's only possible motive was that of making mankind feel a sense of urgency so severe that it would demand the US government to speed-up the spending of its $370 billion appropriation allotment to certain climate-related entities. These journalists are crying wolf so often that it has gotten to be instantly annoying.
It has gotten to the point where the working man and the ranch (homesteader) woman do not want to hear about "climate change" anymore. This is especially the case, being that the vast majority of humans did NOT experience any type of exceptionally horrifying weather disaster. People keep hearing about them, but they don't personally see any of them. Thus, they are "just not feeling it." As was previously mentioned, this is a matter of climate con artists hyper-exaggerating weather events to the point of ridiculousness.
This is what happens when geektoid, nerdo, swirly-boy scientific dweebs attempt to seduce. They don't have the ingredients for such seduction. If it weren't for the news entities that ever-so-coincidentally received a measure of donation money from Bill Gates, then the climate con game would have ended in 2009, with the disclosure of the Climategate emails.
The Blue Marble Album explained a number of recent climate hoaxes. That's one of the reasons why there is a search box at the top righthand corner of this site. You can search around here, free of charge. There is no subscription fee here. There is nothing for sale, here. Neither peer reviewed papers, nor charts, nor printed t-shirts, nor posters, nor cookbooks, nor vacation packages, nor powdered protein, nor "survival kits," nor anything else for sale.
There are a lot of pieces of evidentiary support at this site, to show you that "it" (Climate Hysteria) has been a predictable con game, all along. The motive has been money --- taxpayer dollars, NGO donations, grassroots fundraising drive pledges, and of course ===> United Stated Congressional funding allotments, aka "appropriations.".
Below is a NASA/NSIDC visualization of the state of Antarctica, as of September 27, 2023. Earlier this month, it was officially declared that the least amount of yearly MAXIMUM SEA ICE EXTENT occurred this September, in 2023. And of course, climate activists are treating this event as the start of the End of the World.
Now, the visualization below is that of the lowest amount of Antarctica's maximum sea ice volume. As you can see, the smallest yearly maximum is still massively large in size. That is to say, the lowest amount is not much different than the yearly median. The amber line below is the "median perimeter" of sea ice at the end of Antarctic winters. Median is close to the "average." Thus, the amber circular line is "the usual" sea ice volume for Antarctic winters.
In the visualization of 2023's sea ice, West Antarctica has more ice than usual. And of course, it's only slightly more. Some parts of Antarctica are the same as usual, in sea ice volume. The other sectors show that there is not that much sea ice loss, in 2023. All in all, there is not that much difference between the median and the lowest amount. Yet, the climate activists have to make it look like the End of the World.
Antarctica was repeatedly covered in the Blue Marble Album. Go read the discourses ... or, at the least, look at all of the evidentiary support in those discourses. At the least, look at the pictures, charts, and graphs, as well as newspaper headlines from 1936, 1922, 1911, 1901, 1878, 1852, etc.
Journalists today painted Antarctica as a place in a dire mess. It was painted as a place where ice is melting all over the place. It's painted as a place where sun tanning is easy to do. Well, that is, of course, an intelligence-insulting hoax. None the less, the goal of this post was to show you that the Wintertime of 2023 reports about a massive Antarctic temperature rise involved the temperature rise during the Summer of 2022, a year and a half prior. It's NOT happening right now. Yet, the journalists made something that happened a year and a half ago look like it's occurring now --- to scare you.
