You will recall all those stories from last summer about heatwaves and meltdowns in Greenland.
DMI have now published the temperature data for last year, which shows those claims to be fake:
Across Greenland, annual temperatures last year were no higher than in the 1930s and 40s.
The only exception was Narsarsuaq, at the SW tip of Greenland, and even there it was much colder than in 2010.
And at the long running site at Ilulissat, temperatures were even higher in the 19thC.
The temperature cycles in Greenland closely follow the AMO cycle. When that was in its warm phase in the 1930s and 40s, Greenland’s climate warmed. And when it went through its cold phase, temperatures correspondingly fell.
Based on past cycle lengths, the AMO will likely go cold again in the coming decade. In the meantime, we will still have to put up with ludicrous headlines.
There again, cooling in Greenland will probably blamed on climate change, just the same as every other natural event seems to be.
