Greenland Ice Sheet far above the mean

5 July 2018 – This chart from the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) speaks for itself.

The blue line shows Greenland ice-mass balance as of today. It is far, far greater than the mean curve – the average, if you will – from 1981 to 2010 (dark grey line).

I doubt that you’ll see this reported by the mainstream media.

Blue line: Accumulated surface mass balance from September 1st to now.
Red line: Shows the 2011-12 season, which had very high summer melt in Greenland.
Dark grey line: The mean curve from the period 1981-2010.
Light grey band: Measurements were taken on the same calendar day from 1981-2010. Those differences are illustrated by the light grey band.
