Growth Of The Petermann Glacier Since 2013

In 2008, Jason Box of Ohio State University spotted a crack in the ice shelf of the Petermann glacier in Greenland, and immediately realized he could become famous by blaming a normal process which has been going on for thousands of years on global warming.

Global warming sign? Huge Arctic glacier is cracking – latimes

The chunk of ice broke off a few years later to mass hysterics from the liberal press, and since then the glacier has grown about 1.5 miles.

Snow falls in the interior  of Greenland, turns to ice, and flows to the sea in rivers of ice known as glaciers. When it gets to the sea, it calves off as icebergs. It has nothing to do with global warming, and no legitimate scientist would try to claim that it did.

    A little OT but still about ice. Have any of you ever seen sleet that looked like perfect micro rectangular ice cubes? Last year I was fueling at truck stop at Shaddock Landing, NY (NE side of Albany) and pulled forward and went inside. When I came out the ground had a little ice on it but when I got in the truck those little cubes were piled up on top of the wipers and I could see their shape clearly. Hundreds of square cornered rectangles about 3/32″ long x 1/16″ x 1/16″ piled up on each wiper blade of the big truck. It was as if they had been made in some micro ice machine they were so consistent in size and shape. Never seen anything like it before or since. Wish I had the phone I have now with it’s high quality camera. Would have taken a picture of them.

      Hey RAH! Wow, very neat! No, I have never heard of that phenomenon either. I know that there are various optical effects (sun dog sorts of things) that are caused by high altitude ice crystals that align themselves with the earth’s electric field. I would guess that what you saw were those sorts of ice crystals — but I never heard of them making it down to ground level in quantity.

        As I recall it was about 10:00 Am and wasn’t cold and the sun was shinning. Best I can remember it was well above freezing. I know I wasn’t wearing any cold weather gear to fuel or walk inside.

          Hey RAH! Very strange… Thanks for the info. I’ll have to file that under “who ordered THAT?”!

    I really don’t give a flying rip about the Petermann Glacier.
