BAS : “Ice is melting faster at both poles”

Ice is melting faster at both poles as warming attacks its underbelly

There’s disturbing news from both ends of the earth: ice in both Antarctica and the Arctic is under attack by warm water from below.

Right …. Antarctic sea ice is growing because it is melting faster from warm water underneath.

    At least now we know that some of us have been vindicated…..
    …it was the water in the Arctic after all /snark

    Having looked at Cryosphere Today which has shown a trend of the Arctic ice decreasing somewhat and the Antarctic ice increasing a little (except for the western Ross ice shelf) I have wondered why no studies have been published (that I have been able to find) that might indicate some heat flow from South to North.
    I realize that there have been many studies suggesting the South Pole too has been melting, but on balance I do not believe that to be true.
    Too many studies with obvious caveats like the one above.

    Yes, that water under the Antarctic ice must be boiling hot. Maybe someone should open a spa there.

    I wonder whether the author, Geoffrey Lean, has any carbon based investments. It’s usually what drives the propaganda.

    hmmmm, water under Antarctic? and all this time I thought it was mostly over land.

    From beneath you, it devours…

    Somebody had to say it.

    The Earth is like a steam engine. A steam engine has a boiler and a condenser. Water evaporates in a steam boiler. Similarly, water evaporates at the equator to form water vapor. Wind then transports the vapor to the Earth’s poles where the vapor turns into snow. Less moisture being trapped at the poles as ice proves that global cooling is occurring.
    The poles are heated by condensation not by sunlight. For example, in winter it is totally dark at the south pole. Rising sea level proves that global cooling is happening. Global cooling results in less water vapor being transported to the north pole, for example, and so less snow at the north pole.
