Sea Ice Area Sets New Record High | Real Science
The amount of sea ice around Antarctica is the greatest ever for the date, and the thirteenth highest daily value ever measured. Most of the world’s sea ice is located around Antarctica, and it has been steadily increasing for at least 30 years.

Hansen predicted peak sea ice loss around Antarctica, because he has no clue what he is doing.

"This area over here is very heavily vegetated as you can see from the aerial photograph," says Amy Malick, the point person for sustainability at the department of aviation.

She says the city is looking at a pilot program of getting 30 goats to eat the grass and weeds in one, hard-to-mow area just east of Mannheim.

"They may have steep slopes, very hard to get to with heavy machinery, and those machines also emit pollution," Malick explains. "They're burning fossil fuel. So as a sustainability initiative we're looking to bring in animals that do not have emissions associated with them, at least to the same extent that heavy machinery would."
The city says they've already received enthusiastic responses from a couple goat farmers interested in the bid, which is capped at $100,000.
What Is Motivating The Ill-Timed Return Of The Economically Damaging Carbon Tax? -
This current carbon tax push — although only rumblings at the margins — reveals business models dependent on a carbon price. Billions of public and private funds have been invested in alternative energy with the assumption of an eventual government diktat to increase the price of fossil fuels. Without such a sanction on carbon, it is increasingly obvious that inherently less efficient, far more expensive alternative energies cannot compete.
