set in the Arctic Ocean for the least amount of sea ice coverage in the
satellite record, the ice surrounding Antarctica reached
its highest ever level. Sea ice extended over 19.44 million
square kilometers (7.51 million square miles) in 2012, according to the
National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC). The previous record of
19.39 million kilometers (7.49 million square miles) was set in 2006." Ice extent is reaching an all-time
record high on the bottom of the planet just after ice reached an
record low on the top of the planet. What can it
mean? Either there will soon be more ice at the top or less ice
at the bottom or the planet will become seriously 'bottom heavy.'
