…using a “USA Today” article! It’s all about erasing anything that doesn’t fit The Narrative regardless of the facts. Shame on you Facebook. MH
This post came up on my Facebook today:

When you click on SEE WHY, this comes up:
And this is the story the Facebook censors don’t want you to see:
Quite why Facebook would want to rely on the USA Today for its source of science is a mystery. Perhaps they should have actually checked what real scientists are saying:
The Antarctic continent has not warmed in the last seven decades, despite a monotonic increase in the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases.
In this paper, we investigate whether the high orography of the Antarctic ice sheet (AIS) has helped delay warming over the continent. To that end, we contrast the Antarctic climate response to CO2-doubling with present-day orography to the response with a flattened AIS. To corroborate our findings, we perform this exercise with two different climate models. We find that, with a flattened AIS, CO2-doubling induces more latent heat transport toward the Antarctic continent, greater moisture convergence over the continent and, as a result, more surface-amplified condensational heating. Greater moisture convergence over the continent is made possible by flattening of moist isentropic surfaces, which decreases humidity gradients along the trajectories on which extratropical poleward moisture transport predominantly occurs, thereby enabling more moisture to reach the pole. Furthermore, the polar meridional cell disappears when the AIS is flattened, permitting greater CO2-forced warm temperature advection toward the Antarctic continent. Our results suggest that the high elevation of the present AIS plays a significant role in decreasing the susceptibility of the Antarctic continent to CO2-forced warming.
I’ll post this on Facebook and see how long it takes for the censors to strike!
Martin comments: I recall the NZ Msm making a big deal out of Antarctica melting a few years back based on NIWA studies. When I checked the data they referenced, it was all about why a certain ice shelf melts more rapidly during the summer and discovering the mechanism (Ocean currents). The study confirmed that it wasn’t about ice loss, just the localised speed of seasonal melting. A quick check with NIWA confirmed no net ice loss in Antarctica. Now THAT is fact checking. It isn’t hard, but the likes of Face Book (A CIA initiative) don’t care about facts or research, they only care about mind control and social engineering. (Oh, and I did contact TV One, TV3 and Stuff with my fact-check of their fact-check, but none of them were interested).
