    Shocking Video of Melting Greenland Glacier….in Summer Heat

    Shocking Video of Melting Greenland Glacier….in Summer Heat

    Meanwhile, Antarctica’s Ross Ice Shelf is freezing…unexpectedly.

    During my family vacation this year, we stopped in Iceland for a few days. The country was spectacular, and one of the memories I will cherish is our hike to the Solheimajokull Glacier.

    While hiking, I noted the glacial lake and the signs warning visitors to be worried about calving, especially during summer months. Overall, it was a worry-free day of quality family time.

    Interestingly, climate expert Antony Watts recently discussed an expanding Icelandic glacier, and its growth is dependent on precipitation.

    In Iceland, glaciers are dependent on precipitation. And changes in the North Atlantic Oscillation could easily explain the change in precipitation. In a recent story from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab, scientists were “shocked” to find the previously shrinking Jakobshavn glacier in Greenland growing again.

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

    Meanwhile, in Greenland, a similar scene triggered some “climate change” hysteria.

    Of course, America’s Green Justice Princess had to chime in:

    Ocasio-Cortez was not the only one ginning up “climate crisis” fear over melting ice.

    Fortunately, some people brought some much-needed perspective into the discussion.

    Furthermore, for those claiming that the Arctic Circle has never been this warm, historical data indicates that extremely high temperatures previously came in 1927.

    Finally, in Antartica (which is now experiencing its winter), a deep bore probe of the Ross Ice Shelf finds freezing ice, not melting as expected.

    The surprises began almost as soon as a camera was lowered into the first borehole, around December 1. The undersides of ice shelves are usually smooth due to gradual melting. But as the camera passed through the bottom of the hole, it showed the underside of the ice adorned with a glittering layer of flat ice crystals—like a jumble of snowflakes—evidence that in this particular place, sea water is actually freezing onto the base of the ice instead of melting it.

    “It blew our minds,” says Christina Hulbe, a glaciologist from the University of Otago in New Zealand, who co-led the expedition.

    I must note that there are real hazards associated with melting glaciers ….just not the ones “experts” care to discuss.

    The bodies of three boaters from Europe who died in an Alaska lake were surrounded by frozen debris, a sign that the victims were killed by ice that fell from the melting glacier that feeds the lake, officials in the city of Valdez said on Thursday.

    …The victims were identified as Manfred Brida, 62, of Austria, and Maria Elisabeth Schroer, 68, and Albrecht Paul Thomas Schroder-Shroer, of Germany.

    The three had been boating in an inflatable canoe-type craft, which was recovered from the scene, along with the victims’ other belongings. The bodies were discovered Tuesday morning by kayakers.

    The sky is falling!! The sky is falling!! Vote accordingly!!!

    Physical and thermal stress are mechanism in a recurring natural cycle of reduce, reuse, and recycle of water and ice.

    Melting glacier in summer. What a surprise.

    When they don’t melt we have an ice age. We’re not in an ice age. Ergo, glaciers must be melting in some places while they accumulate in others. The accumulation part is boring; just compacted snow, and it’s like watching paint dry. Running water, though, looks good on video.

    What I do find alarming is that these twits at JPL and Otago find the bloody obvious to be such a surprise. They really should know their jobs better. Really. In my professional dealings with JPL I can’t say I’ve ever been knocked out, and I’ve never heard of U. Otago, but the professed shock that the laws of nature are not verifying warmunist doctrine should get them drummed out of the corps.

    Interestingly enough, in her dim way, Psycho-Chick is onto something, with her “This is what sea level rise looks like.” Actually, there’s nothing that looks like sea level rise quite like . . . sea level rise. So look at it. Not glaciers, not tree rings, none of that hooey. Sea level is right in front of you, so it’s easy to see what it’s doing. So measure it yourself. That’s what “science” is; have a question about the operation of the sidereal universe? Don’t ask the Pope, don’t see what Aristotle had to say about it, don’t listen to some PR drone at NASA or NOAA—measure it yourself—that, and that alone, is what makes it science. Anything else is mere faith, or an appeal to authority, but certainly not science.

      tom_swift: —measure it yourself—

      Sure. See See Nerem et al., Climate-change–driven accelerated sea-level rise detected in the altimeter era, PNAS 2018.

      Meanwhile, other scientists measure the ice caps and show that they are losing mass, consistent with warming detected by surface stations, satellite observations, and ocean buoys. So we have a wide variety of different observations that support global warming.

        Sure. See See Nerem et al.

        No, measure it yourself.

        Science is like that. The same for all observers. If you’re not an observer yourself you’re just along for the ride.

        So we have a wide variety of different observations that support global warming.

        As even AOC seems to realize, in her fuzzy sort of way, that’s not sea level. No proxies needed, sea level is easily measured and nobody needs a government grant to do it. So do it. Measure first, sound off later.

    Can we just send all the liberals to a safe zone…..say Venezuela? With their decrease in fossil fuel usage I’m sure it’ll be one of the few habitable places left on Urf.

    I’ll just note here that Zachriel is a paid commie commenter, paid to spread lies.

    Let’s be very clear. The commies cannot show global warming with the data, so they write algorithms to produce the result they want from the raw data. They will not publish these because if they did people like me would find the magic numbers in 30 minutes or less.

    It’s all a scam, and comrade Zach is a scam artist.

    Ever been to Daytona? Miami? San Francisco? Los Angeles? Galveston? Charleston? Norfolk? New York?

    All still there and not one under water.
