Antarctic Ice Growing

For John, BLUF:  South Pole ice at observed maximum, and under-reported by MSM.  Nothing to see; just move along.

At Forbes we have an article that acknowledges the shrinking Arctic Ice sheath (which, of and in itself might be a good thing, making sea transportation cheaper and increasing areas that can be farmed), but asserts that Antarctic ice is at a 33 year maximum.  The selection of 33 years is because we have been surveying the Antarctic from space for 33 years.

Frankly, my own take on this is that it is one more indication that the Mayan long cycle end on 21 December 2012 means the end.

Another explanation is that CAGW views may be (1) wrong or (2) distorted.  I bet there is a lot we don't know about weather and climate.  Remember the old saw—"How can you tell a weather person is lying?  You watch their lips."

  CAGW is Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming.  That means we did it and it is going to be terrible.  See here for example.

  No, Lance, this is not an attack on your Brother-in-Law.

I'd love to get a chunk of that broken iceberg melt it into a glass and taste it

For Cliff, BLUF: "Mass" gains in Antarctic ice are clearly shown in observed data to be from snowfall in excess of melting, NOT freezing. (Read the links).

Calving of icebergs into the ocean and increases in ocean ice would be predicted by continued increase in global temperatures. As can be plainly seen, this continues in Antarctica just as surely as everywhere else around the world.

Why is this so hard for you and for so many others to accept?
