Fossil Fuels Are To Blame

During July 2012, the Petermann glacier in Greenland calved off an iceberg, which academics and the press blamed on the burning of fossil fuels.

“Muenchow said climate change was a factor in the current state of the Petermann Glacier. He said this glacier is as far back toward the land as it has been since the start of the Industrial Revolution more than 150 years ago.”

Since then, the glacier has grown well past the 2011 terminus.  The press reports this growth as “rapid melting” and blames it on the burning of fossil fuels.
