How bad is it getting?

I poke around Google Maps every once in a while.
Is this summer or winter for the south pole?
Here's why i'm wondering....

The south pole at a glance.


Look at the bottom right of the above picture. Is that.... yes, it is...


It's lake water.

take a look here at ice melting and sliding north, refrezeing as it hits the colder water.


Now i know the north pole has had lakes and run-off before, each time it gradually gets worse. (thus the worry about the north Atlantic current shutting down.)

But the south pole? I thought that one was supposed to be 10x harder to melt.
