Pillock: An answer to James Delingpole

Could there ever be a greater pillock, when it comes to climate change, than James Delingpole?

To be fair though, the weasel did admit back in 2011 that he didn't read peer-reviewed papers, and he is definitely demonstrating that trait here.

In his article, on Breitbart, of 29th July 2016, Delingpole stated that "The West Antarctic has become yet another victim of global cooling". He goes on to say that:

"According to the latest study, in Nature, it has experienced “an absence of regional warming since the late 1990s” while
“The annual mean temperature has decreased at a statistically significant rate, with the most rapid cooling during the Austral summer. Temperatures have decreased as a consequence of a greater frequency of cold, east-to-southeasterly winds, resulting from more cyclonic conditions in the northern Weddell Sea associated with a strengthening mid-latitude jet. These circulation changes have also increased the advection of sea ice towards the e…
