The Truth About South Pole Ice Growth

I lifted this from our friends at Global Warming Hoax. I thought this might be of interest since you're unlikely to see coverage of this in the MSM. This highlights the the bias you see in the media which is in the tank for glowbull warming.

Antarctic Sea Ice For November 2008 Greater Than 1979

Both ice extent and concentration are greater now than when measurements began in 1979. This year has so far seen 10 out of 11 months where sea ice has been greater this year than in 1979.

Antarctic Ice Extent and Concentration for November 1979 and November 2008

From the National Snow and Ice Data Center, University of Colorado

Sea ice extent and concentation for November 2008 is 4.4% greater than in 1979 (when satellite measurements began). In November 2008 ice extent was 16.6 million sq km, for November 1979 the ice extent was 15.9 million sq km. Ice concentration shows equal increases, from 11.2 million sq km in 1979, to 11.7 million sq km in 2008.

So far this year there have been 10 out 11 months where sea ice concentration was greater in 2008 than it was 1979. Obviously the southern hemisphere isn't suffering from global warming. Satellite measurements are also in direct conflict with what you hear on the evening news about global warming melting ice in the Antarctic.

Ice Concentration - percentage greater in 2008 than 1979:
     January   - 14.7%
February - 15.0%
March - 34.6%
April - 13.0%
May - 3.7%
June - 1.0%
July - (-3%)
August - 1.5%
September - equal
October - 2.2%
November - 4.5%
Interior ice is increasing at an even greater rate. According to NOAA GISS data winter temperatures in the antarctic has actually fallen by 1°F since 1957, with the coldest year being 2004. All the while global CO2 levels have gone up and the main stream media has been reporting near catastrophic warming conditions. They regularly show Antarctic sea ice shelves breaking apart, which is an entirely normal process. The MSM and certain segments of the scientific community truly must have no shame.

Interesting. But what about the North Pole? Is it the situation similar, or is there any problem? Because I think generally more concerns are about the north. But this is problem of both global warming fans and haters - you always present just one side of the coin. But I think that simply none of you is 100% sure if there is g.w. or not :)
Take care,
