FOX: Cold Water Thrown on Antarctic Global-Warming Predictions

via Fox News:

Antarctica hasn't warmed as much over the last century as climate models had originally predicted, a new study finds.


The new study, detailed in the April 5 issue of the journal Geophysical Research Letters, marks the first time that researchers have been able to give a progress report on Antarctic climate model projections by comparing climate records to model simulations.


"This is a really important exercise for these climate models," said study leader Andrew Monaghan of the National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Co.

Monaghan and his team found that while climate models projected temperature increases of 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.75 degrees Celsius) over the past century, temperatures were observed to have risen by only 0.4 F (0.2 C).
Once again observed real data does not support the alarmist predictions of computer climate models.
