Global warming means more ice in the Antarctic, of course

Global warming is real, because Science. Also, human beings are causing this global warming. Oh, and you shouldn’t call it “global warming,” but rather “climate change,” because otherwise stories like the following sound a bit silly.

BBC News:

Climate change is expanding Antarctica’s sea ice, according to a scientific study in the journal Nature Geoscience.

The paradoxical phenomenon is thought to be caused by relatively cold plumes of fresh water derived from melting beneath the Antarctic ice shelves…

“Sea ice around Antarctica is increasing despite the warming global climate,” said the study’s lead author Richard Bintanja, from the KNMI.

“This is caused by melting of the ice sheets from below,” he told the Reuters news agency.

And that’s your fault, because of global warming climate change. Is it any wonder that environmentalists, who are smarter and care more about the planet than you, want to eliminate the needless and counterproductive “debate” on this settled science?

Shut up. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up.
