What? Antartic Ice Not Melting?

Who could have seen this coming. Real scientists that's who.

From Fox News
Ice is expanding in much of Antarctica, contrary to the widespread public belief that global warming is melting the continental ice cap.

Ice core drilling in the fast ice off Australia's Davis Station in East Antarctica by the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Co-Operative Research Center shows that last year, the ice had a maximum thickness of 1.89m, its densest in 10 years.

Looking at snapshots of ice thickness over 5 or 10 year periods is little more than observing a high temperature on a summer day when equating weather to climate, but this information does fly in the face of those global warming Henny Penny's.

But, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand morons, so...
