Greenland Melt Season Ends A Month Early

Greenland’s surface has been gaining ice over the last few days, and has gained over 200 billion tons of ice over the past year. The melt season has ended a month early.

Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI

Meanwhile, the shameless criminals at the Guardian are lying to their readers and telling them the exact opposite.

    Expect more of the same hype as we get closer to Paris!!!

  2. omanuel says:

    Thanks, Steven, for continuing to tell the public truth about our climate.

  3. Andy DC says:

    Citrus and coffee crops not doing as well as we had hoped. Too cold for beach parties, surfing and Inuit bikini babes. The non-existent pause in warming is hopefully only temporary.

  4. Don says:

    Why do the Brits insist on spelling NASA as Nasa so often? I see this all the time. It is surely inappropriate.

  5. Sophie says:

    Maybe, because it is losing its prestige.

  6. Guys, off subject I know but we’re losing ground. If you want to puke read the comments at the end of this Market Watch article.

      They believe it’s happening but about 90% of those or so don’t place it as a priority as an issue either politically, or in their lives. They can say WTF ever they want, but the real proof is if they are willing to act upon it and every single poll I’ve seen indicates the answer to that question is a resounding NO! Chalk the claim in this article up to PC I think.

    I hope for the investors sake, Market Watch is better at watching the stock market than evaluating the climate. Seems like two very divergent expertises unless they are recommending investment in windmills and solar panels.

      Thanks for the link, “125 years of cooling”?!
      It’s more than Prof. Zharkova is predicting.

      Here is a cut-n-paste of the main points

      1. The 18+ years temperature pause is real. (4.09)
      2. Natural cycles are behind the current pause.
      3. Ice cores show CO2 lags temperature. (5.00)
      4. 7000 years ago there was 50% less Arctic ice. (8.20)
      5. The 1000-year cycle is real. (9.20)
      6. Planet has been cooling over past 10,000 years. (9.34)
      7. Natural cycles are driving our climate. (10.04)
      8. Shows [natural cycles?] cooling from 2023 to 2150.
      9. Current warming is perfectly natural.
      10. Milankovitch cycles driving large-scale cycles. (13.00)
      11. Gravitational forces can bulge Earth’s core by 1.4 km (15.35)
      12. Gravitational forces impact global temperature (17.20)
      13. Warming and cooling both begin at the poles (17.48)
      14. Arctic warming/melt was caused by warm ocean pulses (19.50)
      15. “Now starting to see a dramatic cooling in the Arctic“. (22.50)
      16. “Arctic is cooling rapidly now. Rapidly!” (24.06)
      17. Both poles are cooling rapidly now. (25.05)
      18. Poles don’t show signs of warming. (26.30)
      19. Western drought and Eastern cold due to 26-year cycle. (27.55)
      20. Polar vortices due to Arctic/global cooling. (29.25)
      21. Lunar cycles correlated with warming/cooling cycles. (31.30)
      22. Rapid global cooling by 2019. (32.00)
      23. “Temperature fiddling” are “more political than anything”. (32.56)
      24. “Could be the biggest scientific scandal ever”. (33.20)
      25. IPCC using “estimated temperatures”. (34.00)
      26. How the government manipulated, rewrote data. (36.00)
      27. “This is temperature fiddling.” Not the truth. (36.45)
      28. NASA, NOAA’s “politically driven press releases”. (37.00)
      29. Met Office calls NOAA’s 2014 claim untrue. (38.00)
      30. Major data fiddling, cheating by NOAA. (39.50)
      31. “The 97% consensus is bogus”. (41.00)
      32. John Cook cooked the consensus data. (41.30)
      33. 85% meteorologists say climate change is natural. (42.20)
      34. Global cooling is the real danger. (43.20)
      35. Volcanoes and cooling often correlated. (44.00)
      36. Crop failures from cooling “very likely”. (45.45)
      37. “Extremely cold” from 2025 to 2050. (46.36)
      38. Global cooling next 125 years. (47.00)
      39. “The cooling is coming”.

      I’d like to highlight the following two, which I agree, but may be controversial to some people,
      13. Warming and cooling both begin at the poles (17.48)
      17. Both poles are cooling rapidly now. (25.05)

      I’ve noticed also that David Dilley, as usual, doesn’t mention the Sun.
      I tend to believe that if what he and Prof. Zharkova say are correct, there is a good chance that glacial inception will happen this century.

      From the article,
      “A range of factors has seen a growing number of snow patches remaining since 2007, but this summer there are more than have been seen for 20 years”
      Possibly related with the present low solar cycle …

  9. AndrewS says:

    So how can we tell whether it is gaining yet? Or is it still losing 200 Gt/Yr?
    “Over the year, it snows more than it melts, but calving of icebergs also adds to the total mass budget of the ice sheet. Satellite observations over the last decade show that the ice sheet is not in balance. The calving loss is greater than the gain from surface mass balance, and Greenland is losing mass at about 200 Gt/yr.”
