No The Antarctic ice extent has been growing, I believe you have posted something similar many time. It is suspected that the winds have been increasing the ice on the eastern portion 1. Most of the ice melts back in the summer 2. And this has been imparted to you a number of times by me along with a link to the National Snow and Ice Data Center where you can find real \ up to date info for the Arctic and Antarctica. The Antarctic ice volume reduces yearly due to the warmer ocean melting the western portion from below .

As Antarctic sea ice expands, the albedo will increase and the land ice will stop melting and the sea ice will no longer be dilute enough to freeze at a temperature above -18C. This is a negative feedback. Even though I suspect that ENSO may be a negative feedback, the Antarctic sea ice is the only negative feedback that I can say that I know about. If Earth were not warming, I would expect Antarctic sea ice to oscillate. It may go through several cycles until the ocean is too warm for the dilution by melting land ice to cause the sea water to freeze. No it isn't. Much of the Antarctic coast is above freezing in the Summer. That Guy I hate to break it to you, but stevengoddard makes WUWT look like realclimate.

C says The Antarctic ice volume reduces yearly due to the warmer ocean melting the western portion from below. so if ice is above average for 761 days but it is reducing according to C, can anyone explain how more is less, only a warmer could I guess

Still an anti-science site, but at least it's a change from WUWT. Still most likely false
Answer #5 | 23/12 2013 05:24
All I know from alarmists is that reduced sea ice is caused by man made CO2 and increased sea ice is caused by wind so just ignore it.

1. Your chart is using Antarctic sea ice area. Believe it or not, sea ice area can change due to the wind and currents of the area, void of any gentle warming or cooling that may be happening in the area at the time. 2. The time frame being used in the chart appears to be November 2011 to December 2013. A. What long term trends can be determined by this? B. What does this say about the sea ice in terms of volume? C. What does this say about the health of the sea ice as compared to 10 years ago? 10 years going forward? In other words, you may as well be looking out of your window and noting that the cows are in more areas of the pasture now than they were 13 months ago. Just exactly what conclusions can you draw from this alone?

Nothing new there, just a continuation of the 30+ year upward trend that's been going on since accurate satellite monitoring began. . Lose a little here, gain a little there. Interesting & definitely bears(bares?) watching but nothing to get excited about unless theres a lull in the conversation about gravity, entropy , time or any other natural phenomena we can argue about but cant change.
