Most of Antarctica has cooled over the last 40 years.

Recent study reveals "a cooling trend dominates East Antarctica and West Antarctica while a warming trend exists in the Antarctic Peninsula. Note that the regions of East and West Antarctica combined are vastly larger than the tiny Antarctic Peninsula."

Bear in mind that Antarctica's average annual temperature ranges from about −10 °C on the coast to −60 °C at the highest parts of the interior, so it won't be melting anytime soon.
