  1. The Atlantic side of the Arctic is close to the average line. The Pacific side never formed ice due to the Pacific heat.
    Antarctica is forming ice faster than ever. I have been watching for 20 years and this year is unusual. There is a difference between how NOAA measures extent/area and what I see happening!
