NSIDC shows Greenland melting out of control, far above average this summer.
This makes no sense, because NCEP maps have showed Greenland temperatures well below normal this summer.
Now lets look at the DMI graph of the same thing. DMI shows Greenland melting well below normal this summer.
How did Mark Serreze’s NSIDC team pull off their Greenland nature trick? They included the cold 1980’s in their average, which was the coldest decade on record in that region.
There was essentially no melting that decade, which dragged the mean line way down. More evidence of why DMI is a better reference than NSIDC. DMI doesn’t have a global warming agenda. The NSIDC graph is extremely misleading, no doubt by design.
