    I am inclined to wait on the idea this is significant. Antarctic sea ice has been trending higher since the early 1980s. Just as Arctic sea ice started trending down. Now that the Arctic is turning up might the Antarctic trend down? Regardless I highly doubt CO2 has anything to do with it. I have a distant ancestor with an island in the Arctic named for him. A ship wrecked on Banks Island in 1850 and the crew weathered two winters till rescued. In 2006 or 2007 a research ship with the aid of an ice breaker and the melting sea ice due to global warming found the Interrogator using advanced sonar. My question is how the Interrogator got there without the help of an icebreaker during a period without global warming????

      Very interesting comment David. Do you have any more information your could share on Banks Island and the Interrogator?
