Cryosphere Today is showing that Antarctic sea ice is about 2 million sq.km higher than the 1979-2008 mean reaching a new high record. Just the extra ice is about equal to the total area of Greenland.
Meanwhile, Arctic summer melt is about one million sq. km below the 1979-2008 mean. Overall, total sea ice is above the mean, in spite of alleged “unprecedented” global warming.
Observational data show that besides the an increase in Antarctic Ice, both air temperatures and sea surface temperatures are falling around Antarctica.
This situation has caused global warming alarmists to struggle to explain the increase. A post by Frank Lansner on WUWT explains the situation and debunks the attempts of alarmists to explain this away.
