We are told by experts that Greenland is melting down. This is a spectacular lie, on a par with any of the worst being told by the climate scamsters.
Eighty percent of Greenland’s ice sheet has gained mass over the past year, and the average ice gain is 180 mm.
Blue below shows the area of ice gain, red shows ice loss.
The next graph is the weighted pixel count, showing a huge annual increase in the surface mass budget of Greenland.
But it is worst than it seems. In a normal year, Greenland gains even more ice on the surface – 400 GT/year.
This of course does not include glacial discharge. If the net balance including glacial discharge did happen to be negative, that would be an indication of a temporary flow disequilibrium rather than melting. All of the snow which falls on the surface has to eventually return to the sea. The net surface change in mass is strongly positive, which means Greenland is not melting down – quite the opposite.
We have watched the Greenland Summit Camp get buried in snow year after year, and have to be constantly dug out and raised.
In 1942, this aircraft went down over Greenland, and was dug out of 79 meters of ice fifty years later. The ice accumulated 1.6 meters per year.
The Greenland meltdown scam is just one more attempt to defraud the public by politicians and scientists seeking money and power.
