Antarctica Global Warming: Advanced Science Methods Establish That Medieval Period Was Warmer
With constant frigid temperatures, the idea of modern Antarctica "global warming" that is "unprecedented" seems rather ludicrous - indeed it is ludicrous, as latest research again confirms Medieval Warming Period was hotter
Read here. The reality is that climate change just happens normally as the world goes through its typical warming and cooling phases, including the Southern Polar regions. Yet climate doomsday scientists insist on claiming that modern Antarctica warming is "unprecedented" - but is that really true?
Another peer reviewed study, this one by Lu et al., has determined that present-day warming has not reached the levels of the Medieval Warming era, which confirms unprecedented warming is not happening.
"...if collected and maintained at low temperatures, preserve hydration waters and their intact crystal structures, both of which have the potential to provide isotopic constraints on past climate change," after which they report on what they describe as "the first downcore δ18O record of natural ikaite hydration waters and crystals collected from the Antarctic Peninsula (AP)," which they say were "suitable for reconstructing a low resolution ikaite record of the last 2000 years." This record, as they continue, "qualitatively supports that both the Medieval Warm Period and Little Ice Age extended to the Antarctic Peninsula."...and they importantly indicate that "this climatic signature is not yet as extreme in nature as the MWP," suggesting that even the dramatic recent warming of the AP may not yet have returned that region to the degree of warmth that was experienced there during the MWP."

Conclusions: The ruse of Antarctica "global warming" continues to be undercut by the empirical evidence, both historical and modern. As of 2012, the modern warming of the Antarctica Peninsula is not "unprecedented" no matter the claims of climate doomsday scientists.
