  1. Actually it’s the arctic not antarctic losing ice.
    According to NASA: Antarctica and the Arctic are two very different environments: the former is a continent surrounded by ocean, the latter is ocean enclosed by land. As a result, sea ice behaves very differently in the two regions. While the Antarctic sea ice yearly wintertime maximum extent hit record highs from 2012 to 2014 before returning to average levels in 2015, both the Arctic wintertime maximum and its summer minimum extent have been in a sharp decline for the past decades and have exceeded the increases in Antarctic increases. They say the Antarctic is experiencing record increases in ice depths even. But these increases are not enough to offset the Arctic loses.

    Just a correction for the cartoon… carry on my friend. 🙂

    • Thank you for noticing and let us know. I totally did not catch it. I was paying so much attention to the drawing I missed the key word. Hope all is going well for you. Hugs

  3. As the artic is really close to the USA, it is to be the ANTarctic loosing so much ice due to climate change. Stupids who still don’t believe lin climate change, live everywhere even in Germany, they are those Black and White thinkers with brains sooo small that they fit on a teaspoon – as Hermine Granger in a Harry Potter story told Ronald Weasyly, when they talked about the amount of R. Weasleys Empathy. And even less empathy can be found in In GOP’s Pro Live bible believers, who live 6000 years too late. – A higher birthrate for the necessary cannon-fodder – maybe?

    • Hello Miles. Well now I am confused and will need to do some research. Both you and Michelle are very smart people You both have a lot of knowledge. So she says it is the north Ice that is melting, you say it that it is the south ice. Could it be that ice all over the world is melting. I know glaciers are. Hugs

      • The melting of Antarctic ice accelerated dramatically between 2012 and 2017. The ice shelves, giant sheets of ice along the edges of Antarctica, are collapsing and breaking up into giant icebergs (which melt as they drift north into warmer climates).

        I suppose it’s possible that ice deposits elsewhere in Antarctica are growing fast enough to offset all this, but it seems unlikely.

        • Thank you for the information. The simple truth is climate change is happening , and yes man has played a large part in it. We need to change our ways before we completely ruin our habitat. Hugs

        • https://www.nasa.gov/feature/goddard/nasa-study-mass-gains-of-antarctic-ice-sheet-greater-than-losses

          NASA satellite shows Antarctica increasing in ICE mass and record highs in 2011/2012. It returned to more normal gains/losses in 2015. BUT the northern Ice is melting to fast for Antarctica to offset the losses. Antarctic reduces sea level by .23 millimeters per year but Arctic melting increases sea level .27 millimeters per year. Some might say .04 mm so what. But it’s cumulative year over year and the other interesting findings were that the Arctic was accelerating in losses meaning each year it gets more and more.

          That is from NASA a reputable science group using state of the art satellite images to measure snow fall, ice accumulations and min/max ice stores in Antarctica. They have MANY more articles and much more scientific information available on the satellite technology and accuracy.

          • Hello Michelle, thank you for the information. It is hard to wade through the many websites on climate change and then try to verify the accuracy. A lot of spin put on different sites. So I am glad that we are getting all these comments, it will help us put it all together. Hugs

            • People think just because the Antarctic is growing that it’s “OK”. It’s not ok. The rate of lose in the north is not being offset but the rate of gain in the south. NASA was very clear on this. They also predict the western sheets will continue to accelerate loses and this may soon offset even the Antarctic gains.

                • More water….jk
                  It actually doesn’t aea level wise. But it does storms wise. More storms is rougher waves. Crashing in rough water hurts to be honest.

                  • Do be careful please, you are valuable. I know you are competitive and you are really focused, but you did get hurt once already. Best wishes. Hugs
