Summer Arrives – Greenland Continues To Gain Ice

The bad news keeps piling up for Arctic alarmists.

Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Mass Budget: DMI

Sea surface temperatures around Greenland are record cold.

The latest thaw on record in Greenland.

Meanwhile, climate alarmists continue to lie about Greenland, like they do about everything else.

    I thought we passed the ‘tipping point’ a while ago…..I’m not sure how to plan anymore /s

  2. Steven Fraser says:

    Outstanding to see the SMB holding it’s level, while the average is declining, the peak level is declining, and the min is declining.

    Clearly, something is different this year.

    Yony, do you have 2014 for comparison?

    Hurriyet Daily News is a left-leaning group from Turkey.
    They seem to reprint articles from the Washington AP.

    Our small local paper prints such stuff but there isn’t a person there that has any knowledge of such things. After community news and sports, they just fill space with anything from the wire-services that looks interesting. It doesn’t have to be true.

    Thanks god we changed fron AGW to climate change.
    What usually would have been the umpthy umpth failed prediction and low blow for the warming cult is now ultimate prove for climate change.

    “Never seen before ice gains in greenland during summer time.
    Prove for climate change.But there is a way to save the planet-pay your global
    co2 tax and we will show you how we turn such an ultimate global threat
    into an meaningless anomalie by simply calling it anomalie-at least until we want to raise the tax”

    Tony, found what there is of the graphical archive on DMI, and pulled the diagram of the 2014 SMB for 6/30, and combined it with today’s, indexing with vertical and horizontal lines to show that for the 20th, this year is ~100GT higher than 2014 using the Mark I eyeball.

    Hopefully, my .jpg will post OK.
    It is very interesting to me that this is quite a different comparison than what was going on with Arctic Sea Ice in 2014.

    I won’t even pretend that it means anything .. but I do find the DMI chart to be quite remarkable.

    At this rate the chances for an ice-free Arctic this year are thin to none. It’s 2018 and there’s plenty of Mann-Made CO2.
    http://woodfortrees.org/plot/esrl-co2/from:1990/to:2018

    Isn’t the conjecture that CO2 traps heat, and the poles are where we will see the greatest effect? Why isn’t the Arctic ice-free?

    And whatever happened to dangerous tipping points?

    • gregole says:

      Oh tipping points:

      “a point when global climate changes from one stable state to another stable state, in a similar manner to a wine glass tipping over. After the tipping point has been passed, a transition to a new state occurs. The tipping event may be irreversible, comparable to wine spilling from the glass: standing up the glass will not put the wine back.”

      This passage dear readers, is not science. No it is not. It’s poetry. Wine spilling from a glass. Lost. The wine is lost. Forever. Tipping point.

    The Summer Solstice in Scotland was welcomed in with fresh snow on the mountains – around 3500 ft and higher.

  9. Andy says:

    The Greenland icecap is going to be a very slow melt this season unless things change. The current things working against it.

    1. NAO still positive after a very positive May meaning low temps
    2. Lots of snow in late 2017
    3. High albedo due to 2.

    Still not got into ablating even though nearly July.

      Andy, DMI Greenland SMB maintaining level of accumulation, while the prior average is trending down.

      Very interesting year.

    Tony, check out Jason Box on twitter regarding Greenland ice melt.
