Those who reject the theory of anthropomorphic global warming have pointed to Antarctica as proof that the theory is preposterous: Ice in Antarctica has reached record levels. But global warming advocates say that the increase in ice is just part of the global warming process.
Experts say that the increase in ice is the result of a giant ozone hole. And the giant ozone hole is there because humans are causing an increase in global temperatures. So there you have it, the ice is a byproduct of global warming.
“A warming world can have complex and sometimes surprising consequences,” said researcher Ted Maksym.
According to researchers, the huge hole is caused by man-made pollutants like chlorine and bromine, and the hole has a cooling effect this time of year. The cooling effect causes the wind to be stronger and more constant which results in the expansion of ice.
Researchers also say that climate change makes the air carry more moisture.
