Day 209 in the Arctic was 7th lowest behind 2012, 2007, 2011, 2013, 2009 and 2015.
Remember the Antarctic Peninsula … the small part of Antarctica that points towards Chile and is held up by the AGW cult as proof that Antarctica is warming.
Its been cooling for 20 years.
And of course there was weaseling:
Scientists were quick to declare the results of the Turner et al paper, which covered 1 per cent of the Antarctic continent, did not negate a long-term warming because of man-made climate change.
Rather, they said, the ozone hole, changing wind patterns and natural variability had masked the long-term warming trend.
And not just any weaseling. Preplanned coordinated weaseling.
Prior to the paper’s publication, science media organisations around the world were ready with quotes from climate scientists to ensure the Turner paper was not misinterpreted.
Misinterpreted? You mean ordinary people might get confused by claims of warming that were refuted by cooling?
