Eagle Island is not in Antarctica, and the temps went back to freezing long ago. Esperanza base 31 f

The actual information presented in the article wasn't nearly as sinister as the title of the article. But I suppose no one would click on the appropriately named article of, "Snow falls, later melts".

Fish away.

A teeny tiny tip of the lowest-warmest latitude of Antarctica melts a bit of its snow in its summer period, and all the chicken littles run around "the sky is falling! the sky is falling!" Why wrote this? Little Greta? Al Gore? Does LiveScience think its readers are all imbeciles, to be so easily persuaded?

Sure it is an anomaly, just a tiny island setting new records of heat for that latitude. Ignore it, just like the rest of the world, a warm season or two is nothing to worry about.
Or four or five seasons.
Or forty or fifty seasons.
Really, ignore the data, pretend learning is fiction.
The warmer summers happening for the last fifty years are just coincidence that fear mongers are adding more data points to. All the data indicates to a problem with a warming planet, therefore, it must be a hoax. If it was real there would be conflicting evidence. Since all the evidence agrees without any counter explanations it must be a lie, nature would never be so obvious.
Myself and my adult children all live away from large population centers and closer to the rural farming areas. Famine and disease will be far more devastating where large volumes of hungry people will be dying when the infrastructure collapses. Educated folks are standing round eyed in disbelief at the response to the crisis.

Hate to keep beating the same drum, but the tipping point is long ago in our past and the longer we pretend the closer to random any single survival story will be.

I live in Dubai and year on year the summers are cooler, I work outside a lot and drive everyday so check the temp gauge various times a day. I honestly think there is so much more to the subtle climate changes we currently experience. The carbon sector is huge and another massive financial income to many. We don't seem to be able to convince the biggest polluters to change their ways, yet barely any company actually plant trees.. why not?

Sorry, you express a belief system, not an opinion founded upon scientifically demonstrated facts. Most all I know who object to the CO2 theory of global warming (that's what it was called before the "climate change" phrase was substituted, so it could explain everything) admit to a slight warming, but also that it is not a looming catastrope, nor that CO2 is the driving mechanism. We had the Minoan, Roman and Medieval Warm Periods, then the Little Ice Age between the last of those warmings and today. And the MWP was warmer than today, as documented in old whaling ship log books (they sailed into an ice-free Arctic), exposure of hiking trails with discarded Medieval objects on high Alpine passes, just within recent years, the Viking colonies in Greenland that even today are uninhabitable, and many similar things. And of course all the information on the bitter cold times of the LIA, out of which Earth began the current warming trend. NONE of the proxy data used to argue for a uniquely modern warming (the discredited "hockey stick") is defendable science, and so most of it remains concealed and hidden. The advocates of that graphic as "proof" already unmasked as unethical cut-throat totalitarians in the "Climate-Gate Memos". They are required reading, along with the research of Macintyre and McKittrick on the Mann, et al claims. By news reports, the lawsuit Mann made against Tim Ball for daring to criticize him was tossed out of court as Mann would not make his data public. And so on, and so on. It is a crooked theory, aiming for "green" socialist-communist agendas also, along with greedy Wall-Street cap and trade schemes. Wise up, stop preaching the Gore-Greta "end of the world" "tipping point" BS, it reminds me of the Y2K or "2012" hysterics, an other failed predictions of global doom. Ignore historical climatology if you wish, but the facts are not on your side. Our Sun, a variable star, still governs Earth's cyclical climatology.

So glaciers melt in just a few days? don't think so. A few inches of snow would melt, but certainly not glaciers.
