All things are possible, if you have faith in CO2.
As a scientist, I side with the data. Although, the study has to be kept in perspective, since the ice growth is not enough to cover the ice loss in the Arctic. This infers that while the local temperature at the Antarctic is cooler, the average global temperature is rising. Global warming studies have predicted for many years that the earth will experience dramatic changes in climate. This means that some places will get cooler and some will get hotter due to changes in the air and ocean currents. It has also been predicted that the earth will have more dramatic shifts in summer heat and winter cold, which have also been noted throughout the past decade. Therefore,it is completely plausible that the ice growth in the Antarctic is as expected within the global warming model.
We were warned not to eat from the tree of Antarctic sea ice knowledge, but now that we have sinned – only faith in CO2 can bring us back to grace.
