A research team have found a long-lost P-38 under 300 FEET OF ICE in Greenland — Global Warming Alarmists take note.
On July 15, 1942, six P-38 Lightning fighter aircraft and two B-17 Flying Fortress bombers encountered a blizzard while supporting the Allied war effort in Europe.
The aircraft were forced into an emergency landing on the glaciers of Greenland, and though all crew members were rescued nine days later, the aircraft were left behind.
Over the subsequent seven and a half decades, the Greenland ice-sheets buried the warbirds.
Earlier this year, a research team, led by Arctic Hot Point Solutions, deployed new ground penetrating radar (GPR) mounted on drones to more efficiently pinpoint the buried WWII planes.
A P-38 was soon detected, and the team used a heat probe to tunnel through the ice in an attempt to touch the aircraft and confirm that it was indeed a plane, rather than “a large rock, or a woolly mammoth.”
“We pulled the probe back up, and lo and behold it had hydraulic fuel all over it,” said Arctic Hot Point Solutions co-founder Jim Salazar.
It was indeed a long-lost p-38 that the team had discovered, residing under 300 feet of Greenland ice.
Which means the ice sheet in that particular region has… wait for it… grown!?!?
By an average 4 feet per year since 1942.
Recent Changes Were Never Exceptional
Greenland’s 1930s ice melt rates were at least equal to today’s.
In 80 years there has been zero net ice loss.
“The 1920s annual warming trend is found to be larger in magnitude, that is, by a factor of 1.33, as compared to 1994–2007 warming.” — box et al., 2009
On the rare occasions when scientists extend their studies back to periods earlier than the 1950s, a non-alarming conclusion always emerges.
“All SMB [surface mass balance] estimates are made relative to the 1961–90 average SMB and we compare annual SMB estimates from the period 1995–2005 to a similar period in the past (1923–33) where SMB was comparable, and conclude that the present-day changes are not exceptional within the last 140 years.” —Wake et al., 2009
But Things Are About To Become Exceptional
Data from the Danish Meteorological Institute shows an increase in Greenland ice sheet totals.
Looking at the chart below, this years SMB is routinely spiking above the 1981-2010 mean.
And glacial growth isn’t just confined to Greenland.
Arctic Sea Ice Thickness is above the mean and standard deviation for 2004-2013.
While ice is extending on Antarctica too, with a recent report from NSIDC reading, “sea ice expanded at a faster-than-average pace in June 2018 in the Southern Hemisphere.”
The Grand Solar Minimum is in swing.
AHPS better hurry up and extract that plane before its 600 feet under ice.
The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.
Our future is COLD, prepare accordingly — grow your own.
