Makes perfect sense to me. The warming air is making the ice cooler just like in the refrigerator thus as we head further into the abyss of global warming with earlier colder winters and cool wetter summers, increased Antarctic ice and glaciers starting to grow again, the great lakes freezing up for longer and the Sun dropping it’s power output we can expect to see the whole globe being cooled by global warming. Every minute trace of CO2 adding to the current 5.7% of the CO” level of the Carboniferous period, or indeed of the levels found in any cinema or theatre brings us perilously closer to the ultimate global warming phenomenon, the next Ice Age.
Antarctic sea ice has hit its second all-time record maximum this week. The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal. Until the weekend just past, the previous record had been 1.840 million square kilometers above normal, a mark hit on December 20, 2007, as I reported here, and also covered in my book.
Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, responded to e-mail questions and also spoke by telephone about the new record sea ice growth in the Southern Hemisphere, indicating that, somewhat counter-intuitively, the sea ice growth was specifically due to global warming.
“The primary reason for this is the nature of the circulation of the Southern Ocean – water heated in high southern latitudes is carried equatorward, to be replaced…
