The full melting of Greenland’s ice sheet could increase sea levels by about 20 feet.

This river is one of a network of thousands at the front line of climate change.

Greenland Is Melting Away – The New York Times

Five hundred billion tons of snow falls on Greenland every year. All of that has to return to the sea by either melt or glacier calving. Otherwise the ice would be piled up to the top of the atmosphere. These anti-science hacks at the New York Times take pictures of that essential process and attribute it to “climate change”

Even the most ridiculous estimates of ice loss in Greenland are less than 200 km³ per year. The volume of the ice sheet is 3,000,000 km³. Using the most aggressive claims, it would take 15,000 years for the ice sheet to melt. That accounts for a sea level rise of about one hundredth of an inch per year. Does Coral Davenport think that one inch of sea level rise over the next century is going to drown her?

But the reality is that the surface of Greenland gains about 300 billion tons of ice every year. Greenland is not melting.

Ninety percent of the ice sheet gained mass from September 1, 2014 to August 30, 2015.

Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI

Claims that the ice sheet is losing 200 km³ / year are based on unreliable gravity calculations made by people with an agenda. Glacial flow to the ocean is controlled by the amount of excess ice building up in the interior. If for some reason the amount of ice building up in the interior decreased, flow would also decrease.

The New York Times has been reporting this same hysteria for almost 85 years.

Thirty years later they were predicting a new ice age.

Climate is cyclical. There is no rational reason to believe that the Greenland ice sheet is going to disappear. More than half of it never gets above freezing most years.

    So what has caused the ice to growth in South Greenland and drop rapidly in the North?

    I am just curious..

    1936- “North-West Passage After 80 Years New Route for Canadian Grain Ships..

    ….This year it is believed that the
    freeze that will close the pack ice for
    the winter will not occur until the
    middle of October- Hence it is prob
    able that the chartered ships will be
    able to make two voyages during the
    time. Hundreds of thousands of
    bushels of wheat, probably millions,
    will arrive in Europe by this cheaper
    route in 1936

    THE C. B. PEDERSEN,

    of Canada”

    Recently record low temperatures have been measured at Greenland.

    October temperatures have plummeted to minus 55 and minus 57 degrees Celsius. You must really be a very strong believer in globullshit warming if you think ice is melting at these temperatures. But if you are able to convince gullible others that ice is melting and even melting dangerously below minus 50 degrees Celsius, you will get the Nobel Price, like Al Gore and Obama.

    Amazing the way the NYT headlines it: Greenland is Melting Away. And that’s what the lemmings believe. The science is settled….uh. But then there’s the reality of actual temps and digesting the total ice that would have to melt in order for 20 foot sea level increase to occur. 15,000 years if it continues on it’s projected melting trend. Amazing. And the takeaway from all this is that Republican flat-earthers are trying to stop this vital research.
