There never was any warming in Antarctica
This is the RSS plot of the southern polar regions, since 1980 up to the present. You can look at the original below, I just zoomed it up a bit.
So, all those sob stories about the Anarctic melting are ridiculous. The glaciers are enjoying a surge, which causes a lot of ice to break up in the ocean. I still predict another year of intense carbonista articles until they lose their audience. The political spectrum is a circle, with trumpies and English Majors joining at the bottom.
ps. explanation -- This is the temperature variation from an arbitrary mean. Thus, the zero line is really some average temperature. Then they amplify it to fill the chart. The temperatures are taken from satellite observations, and was fully accepted by the carbonistas when it was rising.
