How does Arctic sea ice loss compare to Antarctic sea ice gain?
Arctic sea ice loss is three times greater than Antarctic sea ice gain.
Arctic sea ice loss is matched by Antarctic sea ice gain
In fact, the global sea-ice record shows virtually no change throughout the past 30 years, because the quite rapid loss of Arctic sea ice since the satellites were watching has been matched by a near-equally rapid gain of Antarctic sea ice. Indeed, when the summer extent of Arctic sea ice reached its lowest point in the 30-year record in mid-September 2007, just three weeks later the Antarctic sea extent reached a 30-year record high. The record low was widely reported; the corresponding record high was almost entirely unreported. (Chris Monckton)
Kook and Nutter solve the equation :
-3x + 1x = a positive number
The amount of sea on Earth is above the post 1979 mean, meaning that Antarctic gain is greater than Arctic loss
I’m skeptical that their combined IQ matches that of a turnip.
