research has shown that the odds of a super El Niño like the one that boiled the ocean in 2015-16 are likely to double as the climate warms, further compounding the risk. There were also strong winds out of the west that helped blunt some of the melting in January 2016, but if the meteorological odds don’t line up in the future, the region could be in even deeper trouble.
“What this particular event reported in this paper means is that regardless of how strong the westerlies are, we’re likely to get widespread melting,” Bromwich said. “And if they’re weak, we’ll get extreme

there was a related article in Tuesday's Science Times (New York Times).
What we need to do is have James Inhofe, Scott Pruitt, and the rest of the climate deniers spend time on the antarctic's soon to break away ice sheet!
