Antarctic sea ice grows to greatest extent EVER even as MSM ramps up its desperate attempts to convince us otherwise
Sea ice coverage around Antarctica – which has actually been increasing since 1979 – marked a record high over the weekend, says journalist Howard Ambler on his blog, Talking About the Weather.
Despite continued warnings of global warming, sea ice surrounding the Antarctic continent now measures 2.07 million square kilometers, says Ambler.
The previous record anomaly for Southern Hemisphere sea ice area was 1.840 million square kilometers and occurred on December 20, 2007,” says Ambler, author of the book Don’t Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change.
The new record – more than 10 percent greater than the previous record – was posted first by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign’s online record, The Cryosphere Today, early Sunday morning.
Global sea ice also above average
Meanwhile, Ambler pointed out, global sea ice area on Sunday stood at 0.991 million square kilometers above average.
The growing Antarctic sea ice is providing “a public relations problem, at a minimum, for those warning of global warming’s menace,” said Ambler.
During the past 18 months, global sea ice “has seen its most robust 18-month period of the last 13 years, maintaining, on average, a positive anomaly for an 18-month period for the first time since 2001,” he wrote.
In addition, Ambler said, the South Pole’s temperature has been dropping over the past 40 years.
High Arctic sea ice concentrations
Meanwhile, ice extent in the Arctic is also doing quite well.
As A.J. Virgo points out, once you get past the hype, the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) admits that “…satellites detected high sea ice concentrations over the Arctic as a whole.” This was dated 3 June 2014.
