This is how “Climate” was pounded into the conventional wisdom and is now kept there.
Thousands of spurious little superstitious annecdotal tidbits which are never challenged or questioned by the media
This little peice of trite media pap actually contradicts itself and is designed for the true believer who can then cite it at social gatherings – “I saw a recent article in the New York times that Antarctica is – blah, blah, blah…”
WUWT points out that from the article itself…
“They can’t find any recent warming, so they took a broken sensor with “intermittent gaps and other problems”, “recalibrated” it, “used computerized analyses of the atmosphere to fill the gaps” and “discovered” warming that “happened in the 1980s”. If you believe that this is science, then I strongly suggest you prep your telescope, lest you miss out on a spectacular sleigh sighting…”

So sad what these people have done to science.
