What follows below is a press release from the British Antarctic Survey, read it here
You’ll note as you read the press release, the science that applies at the South Pole mysteriously disappears at the North Pole. Winds are causing the the sea ice expansion down south, scientists claim, but of course they couldn’t possibly cause shrinkage up north.
I’ve added some emphasis to some of the text below. (P. Gosselin)
Press Release – Why Antarctic sea ice cover has increased under the effects of climate change
The first direct evidence that marked changes to Antarctic sea ice drift have occurred over the last 20 years, in response to changing winds, is published this week in the journal Nature Geoscience. Scientists from NERC’s British Antarctic Survey (BAS) and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Pasadena California explain why, unlike the dramatic losses reported in the Arctic, the Antarctic sea ice cover has increased under the effects of climate change.
