    Sun never passes the Tropic of Cancer or Tropic of Capricorn thus the -22
    degree water at the south pole and -4 degree water at North pole that the
    ocean current churns slower in Winter to build ice in Winter and faster in
    Summer which drives the Polar Ice back…….where are those “sun rays”
    from above P:ole coming from?(Im sure the Emperor Penguins that weather 3
    months of Winter Storm in darkness would want that)
