    Something different and something that should make those who are fearing the effects of GW happier, if possible.

    Shrinks in the Arctic, grows in the Antarctic.

    And vice versa...

    It's called 'weather', too bad the AGW crowd has never studied it...

    I am curious as to why this is true.

    OK. Here we go again. The Antarctic sea ice maximum is about 500,000 square kilometers over the norm. About 1/32 larger than normal for this time of year. It's minimum hasn't changed much at all.

    The Arctic sea ice minimum is over 50% lower than it was for the first ten years of observations. And the maximum is about 1 million square kilometers less than it was during the first decade of observations.

    And here you can see the rapid decline in the Arctic sea ice in graphic form, year to year;

    Experts: Global warming means more Antarctic ice
    10 Oct.`12 - WASHINGTON (AP) — The ice goes on seemingly forever in a white pancake-flat landscape, stretching farther than ever before. And yet in this confounding region of the world, that spreading ice may be a cockeyed signal of man-made climate change, scientists say.

    ..and the Antarctic holds something like 90% of the world's ice which you never see the man-made global warming crowd want to discuss. It's much easier for them to have something to protest about, even when fabricated by bought and paid for pseudo science, or they feel useless. While the rest of the non-whining normal folk get by just enjoying life.

    More of Antarctic glacier floating than thought: scientists
    Wed, Mar 21, 2018 - More of a France-sized glacier in Antarctica is floating on the ocean than previously thought, scientists said yesterday, raising fears it could melt faster as the climate warms and have a dramatic effect on rising sea levels.
