Contrary to popular belief, sea ice at both poles is growing, not shrinking

Four years ago, at the end of March 2017, the Antarctic sea ice area was 3 million square kilometers, and now, at the end of March 2021, the data shows plus 5 million square kilometers of ice. According to the theory of global warming, this is impossible, but it is a fact – an increase of 2 million square kilometers.

See the blue line? As of late March, Antarctic sea ice was clearly above average.

See the black line on the chart? At the end of March, the volume of sea ice in the Arctic was higher than in 2017 or 2018.

This is the latest satellite image of the extent of Arctic sea ice.

After more than four decades of being told that Arctic ice is on the brink of a catastrophic decline due to global warming, in fact it is at the same level – this orange line showing the extent of the ice is quite close to the figures for 1981- 2010 years.

Moreover, the ice build-up seen in Antarctica easily compensates for the “missing” ice in and around the Arctic.
