A. is reflective, so that little polar ice melts during the summer; otherwise,
B. is so reflective that little of the polar ice melts during the summer; were it to do so,
C. so reflective that little polar ice melts during the summer, or else
D. reflective, so that little of the polar ice melts during the summer, or

IMO C.

C. so cold ....... so reflective are parallel and the "," is the right usage instead of the semicolon.

I agree B is more parallel however "It" has no clear referent. Who will do so "Antarctica, Earth, Summer, Polar Ice". Moreover clause following semicolon does not look independent.
IMO C.

The semicolon used right here.

What is OA to confirm my thoughts?
