Now scientists explain that global warming makes the Antarctic ice sheet shrink.

Satellites measure Antarctica is … losing land ice at an accelerating rate which has implications for sea level rise.

the ice sheets are sensitive to warming temperatures and are going to cause significant sea level rise over this century (and beyond).

Is Antarctica losing or gaining ice?

Global warming is truly amazing, in that it can simultaneously produce all possible outcomes.

  1. There is a huge difference between land ice and sheet ice, land ice is melting increasing the levels of the ocean, sheet ice is just ice that forms on the water, it freezes and thaws every year not contributing to the overall sea leavls. On top of that warmer air does have the ability to absorb more moisture which would create more sheet ice when the air cooled at antartica and released the stored water. your site is total bull.
