Antarctic Ice Cap Growing Not Shrinking

CO2 Science All the doom-sayers going on about major cities underwater will certainly change their tunes now. Won't they? Probably not.... What would they do if they didn't relentlessly attack business in general and American business in particular? (They would find some other way to voice their communist outlook.)
What it means
Contrary to all the horror stories one hears about global warming-induced mass wastage of the Antarctic ice sheet leading to rising sea levels that gobble up coastal lowlands worldwide, the most recent decade of pertinent real-world data suggest that forces leading to just the opposite effect are apparently prevailing.
The meat of the article talks about the data which shows that given the density of the snow falling on Antarctica, the ice sheet is collecting more water every year. Enough to lower sea levels slightly every year (0.08mm per year).
