Petermann Glacier Devastation Update

In 2010, NASA and the press got hysterical about a chunk of ice which calved off the Petermann Glacier in Greenland.

    Looks a bit nippy up there, too cold for golf.

  2. Studiodad says:

    There’s a lot more rotten ice in the water now and climate change has allowed vast tracts of former wasteland to be devoted to cotton production.

  3. It’s more normal than we thought.

    Reblogged this on CACA and commented:
    To Climate Alarmists, Expanding Means Shrinking

    Such a common theme now. It’s so revealing that the people who told us these things were so scary and tragic are NOT relieved to see the same processes reversing. Perhaps the spinners of these scare stories have become numb to their own fear!

    Steve – and your image is later in the melt season than the NASA pics.

    The new prayer for the Alarm-warmistas –
    The warmth and high concentration of CO2 hiding in the deep ocean had backradiated IR energy to the glacier which then cracked and eventually calfed. As it gets older it will accumulate a sooty layer ready for next year when it will melt.

    There’s a lot of new snow in todays picture.

    The current ice edge is several kilometres beyond where the break occurred in 2010 – look at ice front position relative to the most northerly valley glacier entering the fjord on the right.

    Oddly enough the Worldview coastline has the glacier front even further up the fjord; adjacent to the second most northerly valley glacier entering the fjord on the right.

    Once again what the Apocalyptic crowd highlights as abnormal… is really… normal…
    Well done with the follow up on these hysterical claims and predictions put forth over the years..

  10. Jason Calley says:

    I have asked CAGW enthusiasts, “If glaciers were getting bigger, would we see more and bigger calving, or would we see smaller and less? If glaciers were melting, would we see more and bigger calving, or would we see smaller and less?”

    I have never gotten a clear answer.
