Warming Defied…Greenland Glacier Growth Over Past 5 Years… Polar Bears Leaving Early For Ice!

The Arctic is defying the alarmist melting predictions made by global warming activists and scientists. An Embarrassment!

First, Vencore Weather here writes that Greenland Summit Station “will experience high temperatures around -40°F which continues the very cold and well-below normal trend for the month of November“.

Moreover Vencore presents 2 NASA/MODIS satellite photos of Greenland’s Petermann Glacier during the past five years, which revealed growth of the glacier over the past 5 years: from a low point in August 2012 (left) to August 2017 (right):

Vencore Weather reports:

In addition to the bitter cold, snow and ice accumulation throughout Greenland has been running at the high end of normal since the fall of 2016  – at times at or near record levels.”

This tells us the the dire warnings issued years ago of a melting Arctic have been in fact been met with contradictory developments.

Polar bear expert: one of the earliest Hudson Bay freezings

Meanwhile at Twitter here polar bear expert Dr. Susan Crockford recently tweeted:

CIS Hudson Bay and Eastern Arctic for week of November 20: still way more shore-bound ice than average for this point in the season, with an unusual patch of new ice in NW Hudson Bay (dark blue).”

Also at her Polar Bear Science site here, Crockford wrote that the West Hudson Bay freeze-up was “one of earliest since 1979.”

Crockford next cited polar bear guide Kelsey Eliasson, “on the ground near Churchill“, who “noted yesterday (12 November) that virtually all bears had already left for the ice (see first comment)“.

The following charts provided by Crockford show that the “freeze up day” has been at a constant level so far this century. The “ice break-up day” in the spring has also been consistent over the past two decades. Finally, the number of ice-free days has not been trending up over the past 20 years:


According to Crockford at Twitter here:

The average date left the ice in the 1980s (± 5 days) vs. 2004-2008, when they left 24 November ± 8 days. Virtually all bears on the ice now, which means freeze-up this year was one of the earliest since 1979.

Arctic warming and melting? Hasn’t been any over the past 10 years!
