While disturbing in its own right, this is not a reason to panic. Total contribution to sea level rise from Antarctica, and Greenland is estimated to be 1mm per year. Total sea level rise is now something like 4-5mm, so the contribution from the ice is not catastrophic. Ice loss would have to increase by a factor of five (not unlikely) before we reach the 1M/century rate. The bulk of sea level rise is still caused by thermal expansion, as the oceans gradually warm.

The result is alarming not because of the amount of ice that melted last year, but because it may - may - indicate that ice loss is accelerating.

Recent discoveries of volcanic activity under the Antarctic Peninsula suggest another possible reason for melting on that promontory.

There are huge regions in the bulk of Antarctica where ice is accumulating at an unprecedented pace. You win some, you lose some.

i like this part of the blog:". . . the losses, which were primarily concentrated in West Antarctica’s Pine Island Bay sector and the northern tip of the Antarctic Peninsula, are caused by ongoing and past acceleration of glaciers into the sea. This is mostly a result of warmer ocean waters, which bathe the buttressing floating sections of glaciers, causing them to thin or collapse." is very good
