Another Popular Enviro Myth Debunked

With a hat tip to the folks at the Global Warming Policy Foundation, here's an excerpt from a news release at LiveScience:
Antarctica's ice paradox has yet another puzzling layer. Not only is the amount of sea ice increasing each year, but an underwater robot now shows the ice is also much thicker than was previously thought, a new study reports.
The discovery adds to the ongoing mystery of Antarctica's expanding sea ice. According to climate models, the region's sea ice should be shrinking each year because of global warming. Instead, satellite observations show the ice is expanding, and the continent's sea ice has set new records for the past three winters. 
That's right -- not only is Antartica's ice cover not shrinking, it's thicker than previously believed and growing! Never know that from the media coverage, would you?
