Study: Antarctic snowfall remains static
COLUMBUS, Ohio, Aug. 10 (UPI) -- U.S. researchers say the most precise record of Antarctic snowfall ever generated shows no real increase in precipitation during the past 50 years.

The study's results from the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University show the snowfall was nearly static, although most computer models assessing global climate change call for an increase in Antarctic precipitation as atmospheric temperatures rise.

"The year-to-year and decadal variability of the snowfall is so large that it makes it nearly impossible to distinguish trends that might be related to climate change from even a 50-year record," said Andrew Monaghan, a center research associate and lead author of the study.

"There were no statistically significant trends in snowfall accumulation over the past five decades, including recent years for which global mean temperatures have been warmest," Monaghan said.

1. What kind of stupid subject line is that....
In case you weren't paying attention, snowfall in an isolated region is not equal to global average surface temperature.

3. That last paragraph is kinda important
The findings also suggest thickening of Antarctica's massive ice sheets haven't reduced the slow, but steady, rise in global sea levels, as some climate-change critics have argued.

Isn't the article attempting to disprove global warming?

5. Global warming is just a conspiracy like terrorist plots
meant to scare people to achieve political ends (Sarcasm but labeling everything bunk works for both sides of the political spectrum.
