Isn't it funny that the NSIDC stopped "reporting" Antarctic ice conditions since about 2007? But the NSIDC's data was used to make THIS report!!!
That is called selective reporting. The NSIDC will only report data which supports their agenda
ANTARCTIC SEA ICE EXTENT AT RECORD HIGH
Date: 24/08/13 The Antarctic Sun
Antarctic sea ice extent in mid-August reached a record or near-record level high at 18.7 million square kilometers, according to the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
The positive growth of total sea ice extent around Antarctica, which averages 18 million square kilometers at the height of winter, is part of a long-term trend and is consistent with how scientists believe climate change affects the southernmost continent.[See previous article — Record extent: 2010 climate report notes Antarctic sea ice grows while world warms.]

Unusually extensive ice was reported in the Bellingshausen, Amundsen, and Ross seas, and in the western Indian Ocean sector.
Well dah, I SURE the F-do! Do you??? I know that Antarctica contains over 90% of all fresh water ice and 80% of all fresh water and that Antarctica has been gaining ice mass. In fact since they started to use satellites in 1977 there is more fresh water ice than EVER recorded!!!<quoted text>
Sea ice, Rogue , SEA ICE. Do you even know the difference between sea ice and glacier or "on-land" ice?
Now, why does the NSIDC no longer report Antarctic ice conditions? Is it because the data would conflict with their agenda?!?
