Greenland : “A New Study Says”

A new study admits that Greenland’s surface is gaining ice, but says this will change by the year 2055 due to CO2.

The surface of Greenland’s ice sheet could lose more mass than it gains by 2055, a new study says – ArcticToday

The surface mass balance data for the Greenland Ice Sheet from the Danish Meteorological Institute shows that over the past five years, the surface of Greenland has averaged a gain of about 400 billion tons per year, which is slightly above the 1981-2010 mean.

But the press tells us that Greenland melting is the fastest in 12,000 years.

From the 1990 IPCC Report.

Trees grew all the way to the edge of the Arctic Ocean.

But no worries, scientists have now erased the Holocene Optimum.

But that glacier is growing now, and National Geographic says it is bad news.

The largest glacier in Northern Greenland (Petermann) has also grown since 2012

As has the Helheim glacier in eastern Greenland.
