Experts Claim That Antarctic Ice Is Not Melting Rapidly; Can We Still Save Earth?
As opposed the previous idea, experts were concerned that ice at the South Pole has declined significantly in the late 1950s, which has been blamed due to man's activity. Recent discovery of scientists after poring over the logbooks of great polar explorers such as Robert Falcon Scott and Ernest Shackleton has revealed that the Antarctic sea ice had barely changed from where it was 100 years ago.
The Antarctic Ice Not Deteriorating
According to reports revealed by The Sun, the Antarctic sea ice is much less sensitive to the effects of climate change than that of the Arctic, which in stark contrast, has experienced a dramatic decline during the 20th century. Climate researchers have also allegedly suggested that the sea has swung between decades of high ice cover followed by years of low cover rather than enduring a steady downward trend.
However, in the new analysis reported by Telegraph, it was found that conditions are now virtually identical to when the Terra Nova and Endurance sailed to the continent in the early 1900s, indicating that declines are part of a natural cycle and not the result of global warming.
Furthermore, University of Reading scientists have already estimated the extent of Antarctic summer sea ice has also been revealed to be at most 14 percent smaller now than during the early 1900s, after comparing the explorer's logbooks in new research.
Meanwhile, study lead author Dr. Jonathan Day, has reportedly claimed that Scott and Shackleton's mission are being remembered in history as heroic failures, yet the data collected by these and other explorers could profoundly change the way we view the ebb and flow of Antarctic sea ice. Despite these speculations, the team has highly emphasized that they were unable to analyze some logbooks from the Heroic Age period, which have not yet been imaged and digitized, which have also included he records from the Norwegian Antarctic expedition of 1910-12 lead by Amundsen, the first person to reach both the south and north poles.
