For a long time the line has been why worry, be happy, sea ice in the Antarctic is increasing. Of course, the two poles are like guy and gal. Antarctic sea ice surrounds a frozen continent, Arctic sea ice fills an enclosed ocean, but ice reflects sunlight, thus energy.
Antarctic sea ice is a consequence of increased snow down there as the oceans warm and absolute humidity increases. Eli wrote about that in Curry vs. Curry, a wonderful example of how Antarctic sea ice extent encourages cognitive dissonance and cherry picking, but of course increasing Antarctic sea ice is a prime tree that the denialists swing on. Of course also, it was also obvious to Manabe in the 1990s that as warming increased the snow would turn to rain, sea ice would start to melt and Antarctic sea ice would decrease. Even Curry signed on to that. It has, the Arctic sea ice is growing in more slowly and the Earth is warming.
Weather has become climate to our ill fortune.
