"Antarctic Ice Growing, Not Shrinking"

Fox News has this report.

Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.

The results of ice-core drilling and sea ice monitoring indicate there is no large-scale melting of ice over most of Antarctica, although experts are concerned at ice losses on the continent's western coast.

Antarctica has 90 percent of the Earth's ice and 80 percent of its fresh water, The Australian reports. Extensive melting of Antarctic ice sheets would be required to raise sea levels substantially, and ice is melting in parts of west Antarctica. The destabilization of the Wilkins ice shelf generated international headlines this month.

However, the picture is very different in east Antarctica, which includes the territory claimed by Australia.

East Antarctica is four times the size of west Antarctica and parts of it are cooling. The Scientific Committee on Antarctic Research report prepared for last week's meeting of Antarctic Treaty nations in Washington noted the South Pole had shown "significant cooling in recent decades." . . . .

The effort to teach public school students the effects and validity of global warming (K-12) is well underway.

CBS, NBC, ABC and large city govt's are not interested in dealing with facts, only their lies and socialist agendas matter to them.

Off-topic: notice all the multiple victim shootings (this year) since Obama became President. Most people will tie some of them to our socialist economic failures (and war spending). Few people will see them as being incited by local govts hoping the Obama administration will use them to justify more gun control.
