OH JEZZ THAT’S THE BEST YOU GOT
... list of respectable sites ...
The problem was your original source ClimateDepot, Mr. Morano’s crazy spin spot. You won’t learn anything trust worthy about climate science over there.
What you are avoiding is that even though this
In September of last year, satellite data indicated that Antarctica was surrounded by the greatest area of sea ice ever recorded in the region: 7.51 million square miles (19.44 million square kilometers), according to the center.
is true - we are talking about seasonal freezing and melting of surface water, in part due to increased snow fall (global warming related incidentally. Warmer ocean more evaporation…).
The really scary thing going on down there is the West Peninsula with the glaciers and warming ocean currents melting them from the bottom. Also with loss of buttressing ice sheets glaciers will slide more rapidly. And there is the scary part of glaciers losing their grounding-line and melting back from underwater (anchoring) ridges meaning that ocean water can get under some glacial tongues and through various dynamics increase the disintegration of ice shelves and glaciers.
There are a lot of things going on simultaneously - and they are all being observed and studied and and relatively well understood. It’s when the ruthless politico’s such as Marc Morano get involved science and learning is the last thing they are interested in, don’t trust them.
