Different stories are unfolding at the two poles of our planet. In the Arctic, more than half of the summer sea ice has disappeared since the late 1970s. The steady decline is what global climate models predict for a warming world. Meanwhile, in Antarctic waters, sea-ice cover has been stable, and even increasing, for decades. Record maxima were recorded in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
