Nine days in all time record territory for Ice in Antarctica so far this year! A Limerick.

(update: Sep 30 came in with the 3:rd highest level ever at 19.50483 million square km of ice in Antarctica. October first NASA shut down so we do not know if October first was in record territory)


The Ice is still growing down under.

The IPCC torn asunder.

For the Ice does not lie.

Kiss the warming good-bye.

It’s worse than a crime, it’s a blunder.


In 2012 NOAA’s South Hemisphere Sea Ice Extent set a new record with 11 of the 15 highest levels ever recorded.

These are the data so far for 2013 (the Ice Extent is still rising, and it is spring in Antarctica)

The top 10 highest Antarctic Sea Ice Extent’s of all time (in the satellite record)!

9 of the top 10 extents are now in 2013!

This must be an inconvenient truth since NOAA isn’t mentioning it.
