Less than 10 years remain before the oft-claimed tipping point for the planet, but sea ice in the Arctic Ocean is the highest its been in nine years, increasing more than 30% from last year, while the Antarctics level is well above normal.
Thats according to the Ocean and Sea Ice Satellite Application Facilitys High Latitude Processing Center, pointed out climate-change skeptic Tony Heller.
He noted the Arctic Ocean gained a record amount of sea ice during the first week of September.
Most years the Arctic loses ice, but this year ice extent has increased more than 77,000 square miles, he wrote on Twitter, adding the news likely would not be reported by CNN, BBC News or the New York Times.
Meanwhile, the sea melt this summer was the lowest in 15 years, and the expanse of Antarctic sea is well above average.
