The Greenland Ice Sheet has turned a corner in recent years, from mass loss to mass gain. However, increasingly-desperate to cling to their hokey AGW theory, alarmists, activist-scientists, and their MSM lapdogs are forced to turn to embarrassing reports such this one on Greenland’s Spalte Glacier.
“A 42-square-mile slab of glacier has split off from an ice shelf in Greenland and is breaking into pieces,” reports businessinsider.com. “The dramatic split took place this summer, and represents a huge loss to the world’s largest remaining ice shelf.”
A huge loss?
I don’t think so.
Greenland shedding a 42-square-miles chunk of ice is a literal drop in the ocean. Today, the Ice Sheet covers a mammoth 660,200-square-miles, meaning the section that broke off amounts to just 0.0064% of the sheet’s total.
So-called scientists are calling this 0.0064% evidence of global warming: “We should be very concerned about what appears to be progressive disintegration at the Arctic’s largest remaining ice shelf,” said GEUS professor Jason Box, who’s colleague died on the ice sheet this summer during record-breaking snow/ice gains:
When an iceberg breaks off an ice sheet it is known as calving.
Calving is a form of ice ablation or ice disruption, and is caused by a glacier EXPANDING, not melting. Kelly Brunt, a glaciologist with NASA and the University of Maryland, explains: “the process of formation was a bit like a fingernail growing too long and cracking off at the end.”
This GIF (below) shows the advance of the Spalte Glacier between 2013 and 2020. Clear to see is the section being forced forward into a channel of sea water by the accumulating snow/ice behind on the main ice sheet. And then, it cracks off at the end:
Alarmists have nothing to go on, and never did — even their phrasing of the data should leave you suspicious: “The territory has lost 160 square miles — an area twice the size of Manhattan — since 1999,” reads some mainstream claptrap. But who cares how big the losses are compared to Manhattan? What matters are the percentages, and a 160-square-miles loss since 1999 is equivalent to just 0.024% of the ice sheet. The politicized “message of catastrophe” requires twisting and obfuscating though, because the straight-facts just aren’t concerning enough — alarmists are cunning little weasels.
The straight-facts reveal both poles are doing just fine:
I’m sick of the lies — lies made a thousands times worse by the climatic reality that is actually fast-barreling towards us: the GRAND SOLAR MINIMUM is returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow.
Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.
Prepare for the COLD— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
