  2. soon you’ll have to change your terms from 11th highest to someting lowest. i will follow this site very carefully to see how you will explain when the turnaround in the antarctic will happen, means when the increasing effect of more sweetwater = earlier freeze will be equaled and or overcome by the generally higher temps in the southern hemisphere. it’s really just the pole which is colder downt there, exactly like the us and canada encounter cold winters while the rest of the northern hemisphere has, depending, a significantly higher temps across the board. first i was a bit annoyed how people still try to proof that global warming does not happen, but slowly have some fun and look forward to what i mentioned above. BTW to make things clear, i’m a friend of global worming, i find it just a shift, better for some and worse for others. no big deal, happened over millions of years in many ways, we just have to adapt and not insist that things stay the same forever. just that i’m not trying to deny facts to get my opinion covered 🙂 all well, enjoy further 🙂
