Day 73 (March 14) had Antarctic Sea Ice Extent set its 8th daily record – the 5th in a row.
2013 broke the old record from 2008 by 32,420 sq km. 2008 had broken the previous record (2001) by 240,070 sq km.
2008 was an amazing year for Antarctic Sea Ice. Did you know that on day 1 in 2008, the old record was broken by 1,391,120 sq km which had occurred in 1996?
Too bad the NSIDC “scientists” ignore Antarctica. It would have made a great story.
