The Last Word in Global Melting Stupidity - Update
Above are the actually average temps for summer in Antarctica. Doesn't look like 60* F temps to me. I assume that it is warmer in some places and colder in others.
Have no idea how this is calculated (see here)
It is risen about 1 degree in the last 100 years - but no one is disputing this.
The average temp in Antarctica is about -55 degrees F below zero. In order to melt any ice at all you would have to raise the temperature 55 + 32 = 87 degrees just to get to the melting point of ice. To do this in 10-50 years is absurd! You would need to raise the temp many degrees above the freezing point at a rate of about 10 degrees per year every year!
