Antarctic Sea Ice Approaching The Largest Anomaly Ever Recorded | Real Science: I took the above graph from this website and altered it a bit.  I turned the red ice data into blue when it is ‘growing’ so it is clearer what is happening.  Oddly enough, the hockey stick graph lives on…with colder climate projection!

small earthquakes April 23 Mt Rainier
