Actually, there is a lot to learn about the accusations of institutional racism in Silicon Valley here.
If you compare the demographics of both areas, the Arctic is predominantly "white" (polar bears), while the Antarctic is overwhelmingly "black" (penguins). Thus, if institutional racism was responsible, you would expect the Arctic to be rising faster. Since this is not the case, researchers are forced to search for a more scientific explanation of the observed behavior.
Part of the answer could be found in the preferred occupations the residents. Polar bears prefer to source their food from the trash cans of humans in the city of Churchill, Canada, so they want more land for humans and their accompanying trash cans. Penguins prefer a healthier diet of fish sourced from the sea, and thus have a vested interest in a bigger sea to fish in. This may or may not be the answer to faster rising levels in the Antarctic, but in this case Silicon Valley CEOs can safely claim that it is not due to institutional racism in their industry.
I think my argument makes just about much or little sense as other arguments for claiming compensation for the Arctic or in Silicon Valley.
