Antarctic ice is growing...not shrinking....

Ahhh....What will the global warming believers say???
ICE is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.

The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica, although experts are concerned at ice losses on the continent's western coast.

Antarctica has 90 per cent of the Earth's ice and 80 per cent of its fresh water. Extensive melting of Antarctic ice sheets would be required to raise sea levels substantially, and ice is melting in parts of west Antarctica. The destabilisation of the Wilkins ice shelf generated international headlines this month.

However, the picture is very different in east Antarctica, which includes the territory claimed by Australia.

East Antarctica is four times the size of west Antarctica and parts of it are cooling. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research report prepared for last week's meeting of Antarctic Treaty nations in Washington noted the South Pole had shown "significant cooling in recent decades".

Australian Antarctic Division glaciology program head Ian Allison said sea ice losses in west Antarctica over the past 30 years had been more than offset by increases in the Ross Sea region, just one sector of east Antarctica.

Yes he is. Always fair and accurate. It's easier when you're on the side of the truth. One thing Algorical taught me was, never, ever let anyone preach to you about anything.

The Ice Age cometh? That's the more likely scenario, and there probably wouldn't be a damn thing we could do about it except adapt. But it's not something to lose sleep over, that's for sure.

If there is more ice at the Antarctic and less ice at the Arctic will this cause the earth to "wobble"? I am alarmed - how do we fix this man made disaster! Cheers, Fernstalbert
