Rapidly Melting Antarctic Has Above Normal Ice Every Day In 2012

Steig tells us that Antarctica is experiencing a fatal meltdown, with sea ice area above normal every day in 2012. The year is finishing with an average excess of more than 8,000 Manhattans of ice.

    Hold your horses Steve.

    Not 1st Jan 2013 yet.

    Mind you it would take a meteorite impact to push it negative.

    That’s a very interesting quarterly cycle…

    But it is WEST Antarctica that is important. They are FAR different from the rest of Antarctica (sarc).

  4. I agree it’s somewhat difficult to maintain the assertion that Antarctica is warming when the warmest parts of the region (surrounding sea ice) has a long term increase/cooling trend.

    Ah, but the key is how FAST is it becoming above normal.

    (About as meaningless a measure as any thing else climate ‘science’ has come up with.)

  6. Do not discount the impact of undersea volcanoes…that’s not a joke. I can assure they warm the water locally. Warm water melts ice and seems to be a factor people leave out when they get anomalous data and outliers. Increased volcanic activity is a factor while it”s going on.

    Anyone can see we have an uptrend, but the climate “scientists” will draw a lone through the low points and tell us the sky is falling. What is interesting to me is the increase in divergence…
