Climate fraudsters at Yale University show plumes of runoff from the Greenland ice sheet, and claim that the ice sheet is melting fast and will raise sea levels 23 feet.
This is utter nonsense. About 500 billion tons of snow falls on Greenland every year. This lowers sea level slightly during the winter. During the summer, the snow melts and returns to the sea – raising sea level slightly. It has nothing to do with climate. It is called summer.
The majority of days this summer have had below normal melt in Greenland.
The surface of the Greenland Ice Sheet has gained nearly 500 billion tons of ice since last summer. More than average.
About 95% of the ice sheet has gained ice since last summer.
Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI
Scientists have been making the same nonsensical claims about Greenland for as long as anyone can remember.

It is imperative that we call out this sort of climate fraud, and hold the universities sponsoring it accountable. Many of Greenland’s glaciers have been growing in recent years.
Help me read the Accumulated SMB chart. It appears to me that the year with the least accumulated SMB, 2011-2012, had a net accumulation of zero (red line at far right is at zero). I interpret that to mean that the amount of snow / ice accumulated during the winter equals the amount of melt during the summer. I further conclude that in all other years, there was more snow / ice accumulated than melted. The 1990-2013 average suggests that nearly 300 billion more tons of snow/ice accumulates in Greenland than melts (the gray line). Do I understand this correctly?
That is correct, but you also have to consider that glaciers flow to the sea and calve icebergs, which keeps the net mass balance close to equilibrium.
And that the DMI strangely changed the data.
But glaciers calving icebergs is the very favorite video shown to “prove” the arctic / antarctic is melting…
University of Illinois says Arctic Basin sea ice extent is 2nd highest for the date on satellite era record. The Russian Icebreakers must be having a very very tough summer.
Their data has been broken for several months.
Those plumes remind me of the ones in the Gulf of Mexico at the mouth of the Mississippi, where the fresh water meets the salt water. We can only imagine the devastation to the world, every spring when all the ice and snow in North America melts and raises the sea levels. It’s unprecedented. We need to soak the rich and raid the corporations, occupy Wall St., and break up the banks.
Wait, wait, wait,
They said “could” so they have CYA themselves.
Of course, they aren’t betting their salary, or position,
and it helps their social standing with the tribe of other drones,
….Send MONEY! They need more MONEY to “study” it!
We need to have a little contest to run a Yale tweet analog. Similar to what used to be on the SAT.
“The Greenland ice sheet could raise sea level 23 feet.
And, it is melting fast:”
“Yale endowment large enough for free ugraduate tuition for 1200 years.
And, it is growing fast:” references 20% return last fiscal year.

Ivy League Schools/University’s are Satin’s breading grounds !
What do you expect from that/them ?
You are not excepted/scholarshiped to Ivy League Schools for an Education !!
You are excepted/scholarshiped to Ivy League Schools to be “indoctrinated” and the “wacks” who finish this brainwashing, propagandization are found so far out in “Left” Field that Babe Ruth, Mike Schmidt and Hank Aaron could have spent their entire careers tryin to hit one that deep to Left and would have died trying ? ! ?
The Dean of the Ivy League sits on his thrown about 4000 miles below Yale (And sometimes Harvard, or say Princeton ?), he must be so proud ???????????????????

Keep an eye on this ship via their bow webcam (presently in Juneau). The sea level may rise a tad after this one finds it home at the bottom…
Next month you’ll see it following an icebreaker through the passage.
