That's OK. Since your science & mathematics intellect hasn't birthed yet, you're still at zero, with time to go before your brains function. Actually, you could be related to dirtling, who is, "earthling has no brain" & made itself into a slimy steening filthy vile reprobate rooting(& rotting) racist pukey proud pig.
this comment is nothing but an attempt at humor, stick to the topic and refute the information from ucsd using a reliable source, rather than making jokes......

"Antarctic September sea ice has been increasing at 1.1 percent per decade relative to the 1981 to 2010 average.“The tiny gain in Antarctica’s ice is an interesting puzzle for scientists,” said NSIDC lead scientist Ted Scambos."National Snow and Ice Data Center

To a dumber post...

Let me know when you can deal with years, decades, centuries, etc. You know HUMAN scale time. Like what we face with AGW induced climate change. When YOU become relevant maybe your posts will too.

Nothing to refute. They are looking at the issue which seems to be from a combination of stronger winds from the ozone hole, lower salinity from melting ice, and perhaps more snowfall (seeding ice formation) from higher precipitation rates. AGW is bound to change climate on many scales and with many mechanisms.

Oh, and before you try to compare this to the Arctic ice loss, remember that this is only about WINTER ice growth, not the 'summer minimum'. The ice melts back to the continental margins each and every year.

Now. Yow about YOU make an intelligent response. I am waiting...

AGW science predicted that Antarctic sea ice would increase in 2002, confirmed the prediction in 2005 & toxic topix AGW deniers re-confirm presently, as if Antarctic sea ice increase wasn't AGW predicted.

Wonder if anyone else has nticed how any comment not agreeable to all you self-professed experts gains a lot of bad icons?......hahahaha.......one can but assume that the "experts" are as childish as those on the 'race' and 'sex' forums.........ahaaaa....maybe that's where the habit has been picked up,hein?....by the way,this being your forte you may show your "superior" knowledge to your heart's content,but being SO sure in your diatribe,why do you find it necessary to act condecendedly to others "not in the know?" Adam who you put down has expertise in his own area....why not try debating with him on that (one-e.......... oops,will not abuse~will not abuse~will not...etc,etc
