How Do You Hide 130 Billion Tons Of Ice?

In 2014, The Danish Meteorological Institute showed that Greenland’s surface gained 130 Billion tons of ice during the 2011-2012 time period. Now they show that Greenland gained no ice during that period.

How did DMI lose 1,300 trillion snow cones of ice? Only a climate scientist can answer that question.

    Has there been a change of command at DMI? They used to be one of the more useful sites for sea and arctic temperatures. I know they changed the criterion for pack ice because they say they are now using a higher resolution coast line in their mapping. But simply saying that the numbers change “because …” is not as lot of help in understanding why they changed? One fact I was interested in but cannot monitor easily was that the older area was increasing, on contrast to the lower cover they now monitor, and that change suggested that while the actual coastal zone remained constant or was losing ice, not that much farther out things were moving in the opposite direction.

    Same kind of stinky data manipulations with the ice extent graphs. I would be curious to see what happened last year, when suddenly they changed their methods just as they were showing increasing ice cover…

    Maybe it is by accident, but didnt they modify lately the statistics to measure sea-ice extend? The reasoning was a bit strange some weeks ago, but now the picture is getting much clearer. Seems that there was a take-over of a scientific organisation by politics, so data washing starts. Something is rotten in the State of Denmark.

    On annother post: To see the father of the hockey-stick, Michael Mann, lamenting over data and your abalysis is nothing new, he keeps his sound performance as polical clown, trying to be a disgrace to science. And he is doing pretty well.

    Great job, Tony, in both cases to keep the facts straight!

    Ah, come on, what’s 130 billion tonnes between friends? A rounding error.
