Union recycling global warming letters

The Union decided to recycle Tom Van WagnerÂ’s Leave science to scientists, originally published on 1 January under What Credentials, now again on 2 February with a new title. Well that gives me an opportunity to provide some additional information on Arctic and Antarctic temperatures, which are not warming more than they did in the early 1900s, before the big increase in CO2. Yes, see the graphs. My orginal post is in the January Archives.

After taking a personal whack at me for being a writer who lives under a rock, Van Wagner wrote:
Dude, the Arctic is melting! Chill!
Well according to the latest scientific evidence the Arctic, or Antarctic for that matter, are NOT melting. Some regions are warming, but not the whole area. Read

Graphical evidence for Arctic temperature is here. Antartic temperature graphic is here. While the graphs are provided by, note the data source is NASA. For a complete discussion of the data go to here.

Tell me what you think
