Camera allegedly showing the North Pole melting turns out to be approximately 300 miles to the South

Bad journalists don’t check their sources.

Quixotes Last Stand

Everybody’s seen this picture the last few days supposedly showing that the North Pole is melting.

Turns out, that camera is on a buoy that has drifted approximately 300 miles to the south and is now closer to Greenland than the North Pole.

Just found this interesting tidbit on Accuweather.com from the States.”from Roger Anderson, who is one of the webcam scientists at the Universtiy of Washington. I had asked him if the media was using the webcams that were NOT at the North Pole, but rather drifting southward (to show the North Pole is melting).

He replied: “Yes, they are. The approximate position of the webcams today (obtained from PAWS Buoy 819920) is 07/25/1500Z 84.773°N 5.415°W.” This is even further south than I had placed the buoy, because the data I had was one week old. This puts the webcam at approximately 350 miles south of the North Pole.
