Don't Build That Ark Yet

Well, it looks like the ice in the Antarctic is not exactly melting very fast.  Actually, the ice there is expanding instead of melting, which would cause us to build arks and save our butts.
From Talking About Weather:
Antarctic sea ice has hit its second all-time record maximum this week. The new record is 2.112 million square kilometers above normal. Until the weekend just past, the previous record had been 1.840 million square kilometers above normal, a mark hit on December 20, 2007, as I reported here, and also covered in my book.
Mark Serreze, director of the National Snow and Ice Data Center, responded to e-mail questions and also spoke by telephone about the new record sea ice growth in the Southern Hemisphere, indicating that, somewhat counter-intuitively, the sea ice growth was specifically due to global warming.
The blog writer then schools a climate change/global warmer believer, who happens to be a "scientist" and collects a paycheck for his beliefs.
Too bad we can't find a way to bring some of that ice to Lake Mead to replenish the lake.
