Is it climate-denying, or just a puzzler...

Error message

A study by an oceanographer at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts has just been released showing significant increase in the thickness of Antarctica's ice sheet each year for three years running. And since Woods Hole's scientific credentials are unimpeachable, instead of the author of the study being called a "climate-denier," NBC labels his results "puzzling." Here's their headline...

Underwater Robot Makes Puzzling Find on Antarctic Sea Ice Thickness

Antarctica's ice paradox has yet another puzzling layer. Not only is the amount of sea ice increasing each year, but an underwater robot now shows the ice is also much thicker than was previously thought, a new study reports.

According to climate models, the region's sea ice should be shrinking each year because of global warming. Instead, satellite observations show the ice is expanding, and the continent's sea ice has set new records for the past three winters.
