Another Gyro Gearloose global warming theory

More desperate floundering from the embattled climate propaganda bunker has climate "scientists" claiming that somehow global warming is causing increased Antarctica sea ice. This is not a giant step the  people who brought us the cockamamie theory that global warming is causing huge snowfalls and crippling winters in the Northern Hemisphere. This follows on from the "discovery" of Trenberth's missing heat lurking in the ocean depths where somehow a temperature difference of a few hundredths of a degree is waiting to strike humanity a mortal blow. Warming causing more ice is about as logical as most warmist theories.

Global warming is expanding the extent of sea ice around Antarctica, researchers have revealed.
They say in winter a shift is caused by cold plumes of summer melt water that re-freeze fast when temperatures drop.
An increasing summer thaw of ice on the edges of Antarctica, twinned with less than expected snowfall on the frozen continent, is also adding slightly to sea level rise in a threat to low-lying areas around the world, the report said.
Ice is made of fresh water and, when ice shelves on the fringes of Antarctica thaw in summer because of upwellings of warming sea water, the meltwater forms a cool layer that floats on the denser, warmer salty sea water below, the study said.

In winter, the melt water readily turns to ice because it freezes at zero degrees Celsius, above sea water at -2C (28.4F).
