Antarctic sea ice plunges to record lows

Scientists have been left baffled after the amount of ice circling Antarctica is plunging from a record high to record lows. Floating ice off the southern continent steadily increased from 1979 and hit a record high in 2014. However, the annual average extent of Antarctic sea ice hit its lowest mark in 2017. Experts said they don’t know if this is a natural blip or a result of global warming.
