Visualizing The Greenland Meltdown

The usual team of climate liars claims that Greenland is melting down and its glaciers are shrinking. We know that the surface is gaining huge amounts of ice

But what about the glaciers? In 2010 they got hysterical about an iceberg calving off the Petermann Glacier in Greenland. The next animation shows that the glacier grew about 3km from the calving event in September 2010 to September 2014. The tip of the red arrow shows the location of the glacier terminus in 2010. Most of the ice which broke of in 2010 has grown back.

    It is all Bush’s fault that the Petermann glacier calved.

    Is your 2010 picture labelled as 2014 and vice versa?

    To go with your wording, the 2010 picture should show less ice (smaller glacier) in the fjord

    Just trying to be helpful

  4. Keith says:

    OK, I see the point. Thanks for the clarification.

  5. Keith says:

    In fact, the cusped shape where the iceberg calved (near the tip of the arrow in 2010) is still visible in the 2014 picture, just further downstream.

    So why aren’t the warmists having a fit about the massive amounts of fresh water being dumped into the ocean by… the Mississippi River? Just because Petermann is many orders of magnitude slower than the Mighty Miss’ doesn’t make its flow any less natural. I just do not understand these people. For folks that profess to love and care for Nature they sure don’t have much of a clue as to how she works.

    This has been going the rounds recently on military sites, good for looking at the ice too though from our point of view Steve.

    Nice to watch on a Sunday.

      Oh but Andy, did you watch this video that popped up afterward? …

      Ooooohhh, Scaaaarrryyyy stuff … Particularly amusing are many of the comments on the posting. My lord there are a lot of very stupid people roaming this planet.

  8. I also see a lot more snow on the ground/mountains in 2014 than 2010.

    OT: Good news from the Midwest. Lake Michigan and Lake Huron are now at normal levels…

    40% of how many Cm? 4-6 cm /yr max? I saw that calving in 1956 when Disney filmed it.

    History repeated. The island was called “Greenland” as part of a real-estate scam back in the 10th Century: “It was the early Scandinavian settlers who gave the country the name Greenland. In the Icelandic sagas, it is said that the Norwegian-born Icelander Erik the Red was exiled from Iceland for manslaughter. Along with his extended family and his thralls, he set out in ships to explore icy land known to lie to the northwest. After finding a habitable area and settling there, he named it Grœnland (translated as “Greenland”), supposedly in the hope that the pleasant name would attract settlers.” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greenland

    Good to know that the Global Warming conspiracy isn’t too proud to steal ideas. Greenland is becoming green! Next, buy shares of the Brooklyn Bridge!

    Is your image the 2010 calving or the 2012? I remember the BBC’s childrens news program Newsround reporting the latter: http://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/18898163

    They didn’t have these satellite images on the TV – just an animation showing the bottom half of Greenland breaking away and heading towards the UK. It covered half the distance in about 3 seconds — I make that 20,000mph
