Last spring, I pointed out that Greenland’s Jakobshavn Glacier has been growing since 2012, after 170 years of retreat.

Our top highly paid experts have finally come around to accepting what 30 seconds of research on my part determined.

The waters around the mouth of the glacier – also known as Sermeq Kujalleq in Greenlandic – are now the coolest they have been since the 1980s. ”

At first we didn’t believe it,” said glaciologist Ala Khazendar of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “We had pretty much assumed that Jakobshavn would just keep going on as it had over the last 20 years.”

But these people are prophets, and they know the future.

In a new paper, Khazendar and his team have identified the cause – and, yes, it is only temporary.

Unfortunately the don’t know the present.

Meanwhile, the rest of Greenland’s ice sheet is still receding

Greenland’s second largest glacier, the Petermann Glacier, has also been growing since 2012.

The entire island is gaining ice, but climate scientists never let facts get in the way of their junk science.

The climate clown show continues unabated. Whatever a climate scientist says, just assume the exact opposite is true.
