You may have heard that some of the â€œcomputer modelsâ€ predicted increases in antarctic ice, but they predicted increased â€œinterior iceâ€ due to increased snow fall.
BUt hey, if one area in the centre of the antarctic is getting more snow â€¦ surely that must contradict the hundreds of others signals that global warming is real.
As anyone coapable of reading at even a third grade level could easily understand by doing nothing more exotic than actually reading â€” so obviously entirelyt beyond your ability to even imagine â€” citing a single report on the collapse of arctic sea ice cannot possibly be construed as denying that ice in the antarctic was also under discussion.
This is not a surprising phenomenon as such an increase would be the result of increasing percipitation and this is fully consistent with a warming world as the antarctic is a desert and warmer climates tend towards more percipitation.
When the weather got fine, we took a walk round the island as far as the ridge that bisected it would allow, finding the elevated ground clothed with thickly growing trees, principally a species of spruce fir called the antarctic beech, which runs to a height of some thirty or forty feet, with a girth of five or six feet.
