Oh, what a difference a year makes in Greenland melting

And another global warming “Run Around With Hair On Fire” scare-mongering moment falls flat. See especially the link to the 150-year cycle of Greenland’s ice melts.

Watts Up With That?

ARCTIC SUMMER SNOWSTORM

By Joseph D’Aleo CCM

Remember a year ago when few days of July ‘warmth’ with strong blocking over Greenland had the media abuzz over some melting?

Last July a brief spell of temperatures in the mid 30s had caused some surface slush formation on top of the 1 to 1.5 mile thick Greenland ice. The NASA sensors merely color-coded the phase of the water – ice (white), mixed water and ice (rose) and none (land grey). Rose meant some surface liquid. For Greenland, business as usual, because 150 years ago, there were no satellites to record the event.

It quickly refroze in a few days even before the flurry of news stories hyping it stopped.
