One month ago today, the Guardian announced (in pink) that “Greenland’s ice sheets are melting fast”
In the real world, Greenland’s surface gained 220 billion tons of ice during the year ending August 31, and has gained a record ~30 billion tons of ice since September 1.
Melt was below normal on two thirds of days this year, and was at record low levels on many of those days.
Scientists in Greenland are getting buried under the ice and snow at -20C during summer.
The capital of Greenland is having their coldest year since 1993.
But what about the glaciers? Three years ago The Guardian was hysterical about an iceberg calving from the Petermann Glacier.
In the real world, the Petermann Glacier is growing
The Jakobshavn Glacier is almost identical to two years ago.
However, the Jakobshavn Glacier did retreat one foot per day as the climate cooled from 1850 to 1910, which is NASA’s coldest year ever.
Greenland is not melting down. Temperatures there have been plummeting for a decade. Yet the Guardian continues to lie to their readers about this, because they are criminals pushing propaganda – not journalists.
