If you want to find ice it all depends where you look.
If you want to find a report revealing that the Antarctic ice has increased from 25.34 million Cu Km to 27 million Cu Km it would be no good looking for a ‘headline’ story on the environment page……you would have to look at this coded message from the BBC on the 8th:

Which kind of gives nothing away does it?
However if you wanted to know that Arctic ice was disappearing you could look at this report from the 7th still given a headline on the environment page today:
Obvious what that’s about.
Ice increases…story downplayed. Ice decreases….story prominently displayed.
Both reports by Jonathan Amos…..who, ‘just to put things in context’ he says, reveals that if that great quantity of ice were to melt sea levels would rise by 58m……so it’s bad news that ice is accumulating in the Antarctic…..coz when it melts we’re doomed!….yes, no, really…..I give up.
Hide the decline, hide the incline…..just hide it dude!
Trust the BBC.
