The climate scamsters are getting increasingly bold with their flagrant lies, claiming that Greenland glaciers are “massively melting down.”
Greenland is not “melting down.” The surface mass balance increases by at least 200 billion tons every year, and over 400 billion so far this year.
There has been essentially zero melting this year.
Greenland is buried in deep snow.
Temperatures on the ice sheet are -35C
This WWII plane was recently dug out from under 200 feet of accumulated ice.
Greenland is absolutely not “melting down.” There are some measurements which have shown a net loss of mass due to glacial outflow exceeding surface mass gain, but that would be a transitory condition which will eventually balance out. Glacial flow is a direct response to the excess snowfall in the interior. If surface mass gain decreased, then glacial flow would necessarily decrease in the future as a response.
Hundreds of billions of tons of snow fall on Greenland every year. That snow all has to return to the sea in rivers of ice called “glaciers.” Climate experts watch the glaciers return to the sea, and declare it a meltdown – because they don’t understand the very basics of science. Where do they expect the 400 billion tons of new snow to go every year?
The state of climate science is farcical. These people don’t have the skills needed to pass a freshman geology class, and then President Obama calls these buffoons “our best scientists.”
It they were our best scientists, we would still be living in caves.
