The Antartic ice sheet does not become "ice bergs" until the glaciers calve into the sea. And the ice sheet during the glacial maximum was larger than it is now.
While some skepticism about the IPCC model, which is based on 0.3 percent of a glaciation cycle, is reasonable, to deny the glaciation cycle is either ignorant or crazy.
