Only 9 years in the satellite era have seen Antarctic Sea Ice Extent hit 19 million sq km.  2006 had 30 days. In the last 2 days  2012 has trend up again over 19 million and put it within 2 days of tying the all time record. Aside from 1980, all of those years have been since 1998 which some people claim have been the hottest years in the history of human beings. Antarctic Sea Ice Extent disagrees.

Year Days Above 19 million Last Day Above 19 million
2006 30 283
2012 28 281
1998 21 281
2005 13 278
2009 11 271
2007 9 275
2004 6 254
2000 5 274
1980 3 269
