Glaciers around the world reached their greatest size in four thousand years by 1850. Then abruptly the world began to warm. Arctic sea ice lost 40% of its thickness by 1940.

Greenland Ice Sheet Doomed… Again

Guest “geological perspective” by David Middleton CRYOSPHERE RESEARCH UPDATEUnprecedented ice loss is predicted for Greenland Ice Sheet30 Sep 2020 Over the next eighty years global warming is set to melt enough ice from the Greenland Ice Sheet to reverse 4000 years of cumulative ice growth – with rates of ice-loss more than quadruple even the fastest…

Graphing The Icy Reality

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Today I saw some scary headlines. I post them up along with snippets of the stories. First, from the BBC: Greenland and Antarctica ice loss accelerating Earth’s great ice sheets, Greenland and Antarctica, are now losing mass six times faster than they were in the 1990s thanks to warming conditions.…

Greenland ice losses rising faster than expected

University of Leeds Greenland is losing ice seven times faster than in the 1990s and is tracking the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s high-end climate warming scenario, which would see 40 million more people exposed to coastal flooding by 2100. A team of 96 polar scientists from 50 international organisations have produced the most complete…

Greenland’s ‘Record Temperature’ denied – the data was wrong

Greenland’s all-time record temperature wasn’t a record at all, and it never got above freezing there. First, the wailing from news media: NYT: https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/02/climate/european-heatwave-climate-change.html WAPO: https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/capital-weather-gang/wp/2016/06/10/greenland-witnessed-its-highest-june-temperature-ever-recorded-on-thursday/ Climate Progress: https://thinkprogress.org/greenland-hits-record-75-f-sets-melt-record-as-globe-aims-at-hottest-year-e34e534e533e/ Polar Portal: http://polarportal.dk/en/news/news/record-high-temperature-for-june-in-greenland/ Now from the Danish Meteorological…

Greenland Endures

Guest Post by Willis Eschenbach Charles the Moderator has been doing a fantastic job of keeping WUWT humming along, and deserves everyone’s thanks. Today he sent me an interesting article thinking I might want to comment on it. It has the usual kind of alarmist headline, viz: Greenland lost 11 billion tons of surface ice…
