I have absolutely no quarrel with what you choose to believe.

No, the Antarctic ice pack is receding...

No, actually it is not but there is considerable difference in how
the ice pack forms in the Artic as opposed to the Antarctic ice.
The latter is a more seasonal formation while the Artic is more of
a full time coverage. The Antarctic ice increases about 0.8% a
decade. Or so some experts claim, I have never gone to the
Antarctic to check it out. Nor have I made a trip to the Artic to
ascertain how much shrinkage occurs there each decade.

I feel connected to the human race but gave up windmill tilting a
few years back. The darned windmills kept winning.

Actually, to a degree, both are happening. There is more snow in the interior (it is one of the driest deserts in the world, if it warms up any that allows MORE snow) but the ice shelves around the edges are pulling back.
