Thankfully, the anti-science propaganda campaign surrounding man-made climate change seems to have lost some of its effect.

Are you seeing storm clouds on the horizon? Two recent studies suggest that the latest anti-science campaign is following its forerunners--the propaganda campaigns attempting to refute science that tobacco causes cancer, that CFC's caused the hole in the ozone layer, and so on—into oblivion. Global warming denial seems to have climbed to a peak in 2010, and global warming acceptance is now climbing. This bodes well for rational public policy.

@Kendall,

Actually, the two main theories of why Antarctic ocean ice is increasing both have global warming as their cause.

“The two main contenders are shifting winds around the Antarctic continent (possibly linked to the ozone hole or the warming of the continent), which could be smearing the sea ice out over a larger area, and a pool of fresher water around the continent resulting from the melting of continental glaciers.”

Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, says,

“The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent.”

Sure sounds like there isn't a real connection or cause and effect

Gee, if co2 causes GLOBAL WARMING and co2 has continued to rise, why no warming in 18 yrs, lolol.

Still no warming in 18 years, but you clowns hold on to your religion

Is NASA government funded ? If it is then they have no credibility according to you ! No cant believe them because their funded by the government ! Well,,,,,, we are waiting !!

"Antarctic sea ice level breaks record, NASA says"

Such a small amount and yet it says so much about the dishonesty of Stillwrong.

1. Does Stillwrong consider NASA a credible source in general? Of course not because 99% of what they put out about climate change he would disagree with.

2. Sea ice? What about the ice on the continent itself Stillwrong....tell us how that is doing ;)

@ Mythravere Your posts are educational. Glad to see someone has the brains to look past the headlines.

As to the deep oceans, the NASA press release also says, "Study coauthor Josh Willis of JPL said these findings do not throw suspicion on climate change itself. 'The sea level is still rising,' Willis noted. 'We're just trying to understand the nitty-gritty details.'"

Stillhere. Do you just blindly find headlines that you think/assume support what you believe then fire them off on here without reading them?

Though some global warming cynics might see the ice trend as an opportunity to dispute the larger climate trend, the statistics on the Arctic warming indicate otherwise. NASA says that on an annual average basis, Arctic sea ice has decreased at a rate of 4.3 percent each decade since 1979, whereas in the Antarctic, sea ice has increased at a rate of 1.7 percent every 10 years.

Despite the current increase in Antarctic ice cover, scientists say the trend is likely to reverse in the future as global warming heats the planet.
