Question for Muller: If your data is so reliable, and if it fits greenhouse theory so well, why doesn't the data for Antarctica fit the greenhouse theory?

Muller's "BEST" data, warming since 1960 (degrees C. per century)
Antarctica 1.07 ± 0.63...
Tunisia 3.11 ± 0.25
Antarctic Warming - Early Signs Of Global Climate Change
The Sensitive Poles
In its 1990 science report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) noted that global warming is expected to warm the poles faster than the tropics [2]. This is partly because warming causes loss of sea-ice, which reduces albedo (reflection) and also allows more heat transfer from the ocean surface, accelerating the warming (a 'positive feedback'). The warming at the poles is also larger because it is confined near the surface, and because heat is released from the extra moisture transported from the tropics. In 1993, British scientists suggested that the polar regions would be among the first to respond to global warming and that the warming-induced changes might accelerate the warming further
