Does anyone know why both CNN and CBS news are sending huge news crews to Antarctica?

Antarctica has had record ice growth for how many years now?




Antarctic sea ice has been steadily increasing in size, year on year from the 1970s

I think you may have that ass backwards...

Antarctic Sea Ice shrinks to smallest ever extent

Because trump said climate change is bogus perpetuated by FMSM.
FMSM are going there to Rip up some ice and get some news 👌

Yes because the ice sheets grow and push ice out to sea.

The same ice that is in the ocean already so that no sea levels will rise when it melts.


You're close but no cigar...

The amount of water displaced by ice floating is not equal to the mass of water making up said ice. This is because, as we all know, the majority of an ice berg is underwater but not all of it. There's the 10% of the ice that is above the surface level of the water. If all the polar ice melted we would certainly see a rise in sea levels just not as much as most people assume...

did you actually read either article or just the headline

"In many recent years, the average extent of sea ice around Antarctica has tended to expand despite the overall trend of global warming, blamed on a build-up of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, mainly from burning fossil fuels."

Record minimum, not average.

There's definitely something going on. Just look at Google maps and note all of the censored areas. You can see crystal clear details over much of the continent, but you can't see the South Pole at all, and there are dozens of other areas censored. Including what is either a massive pipeline or tunnels. Why censor anything if the entire continent has a treaty that does not allow military, mining or industry. It's all lies and I'd like to see someone come forward with actual knowledge of these censored zones. Once again it will likely be hackers that come out with the truth. They are the true heroes and the only way we seem to have true oversight of the worlds governments.

Just wondering, doesnt water expand when it freezes? Say, maybe 10-15%?

They might be setting up the next onslaught of "scientific" climate change reports that are being paid for


Stupid comment, the ones making reports for money are the oil company bought scientists that deny climate change even though the oil companies themselves have known about it for decades.

You are wrong.
An icecube in a glass of water, when it melts will not raise the level of the water in the glass, it stays the same.


A floating object displaces an amount of water equal to its own weight. Since water expands when it freezes, one ounce of frozen water has a larger volume than one ounce of liquid water. A completely submerged ice cube weighing one ounce, for example, displaces MORE than one ounce of liquid water. The cube will rise until the volume remaining under the surface displaces only one ounce of water.

If you could remove the ice cube and leave a 'hole' in the water where the cube used to float without disturbing the surrounding water, that hole would take exactly one ounce of liquid water to fill. Let the ice cube melt. Since it is now one ounce of liquid water, putting it back into the 'hole' will exactly fill it and leave the remaining water undisturbed.

sea ice is a completely different than land ice.

The is ample evidence that the polar regions are losing their land ice at ever increasing rates. It is the melting of the land ice that creates sea level rises. in some places the ice has dropped 40 feet or more in just the last few years.

Vice News did an excellent report on this:

Vice News did an excellent report on this:


Fearmongering and sensationalism is what I got out of it.
The global sea level is rising around 1.5 millimeters a year for the last 200 years, and that rate is not expected to change much.
Areas that the media presents as being inundated by rising ocean levels are in fact cases of land subsidence.

And here was me thinking I got a decent education, ha ha, I was indeed wrong, I love the smell of physics in the morning...
