AND NOW: Greenland fires ignite global warming fears – “Fire itself will add to the problem and accelerate thawing of permafrost”

Greenland fires ignite global warming fears – “Fire itself will add to the problem and accelerate thawing of permafrost”

H/t reader squodgy:

“Greenland got that name because????

When the Dane Erik the Red discovered it the world was warmer.

When the Romans invaded UK, the world was warmer, so much so, they introduced Grape growing for successful Vineyards.

It is peat that has caught fire. I once saw a lightning bolt ignite peat & the fire lasted a year.”

Record cold in Greenland – Smashes previous record:

Minus  33°C at Summit, Greenland.  In July!

How much ice do you think is melting at -33°C?

4 July 2017  – It is the coldest July temperature ever recorded in the Northern Hemisphere, says Tony Heller.

The new record of -33C ( 27.4°F) smashes the old record of -30.7°C (-23.26°F).

Greenland Enters 2017 Adding Extraordinary Amounts Of Ice And Snow

Greenland Enters 2017 Adding Extraordinary Amounts Of Ice And Snow:

Greenland’s ice sheet kicked off 2017 gaining about eight gigatons of snow and ice, which is well above what’s usually added to the ice sheet Jan. 1 for the last 24 years, according to Danish meteorologists.

In fact, Greenland’s ice sheet has been gaining ice and snow at a rate not seen in years based on Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) data. DMI reports the Greenland ice sheet’s “mass surface budget” has been growing significantly since October.

Greenland’s “surface mass budget” for winter 2016-2017 is already more than two standard deviations higher than the northern ice sheet’s mean snow and ice accumulation over the last 24 years. DMI data shows the ice sheet added 8 gigatons of ice and snow Jan. 1, well above the standard deviation for that day.

After the harsh cold October 2016, the weather models are threatened with an unusually early winter break at the October / November 2016 monthly change.

In this case, snowfall down to the lowlands is possible.

The JRC is now expecting an imminent slump in polar ice in large parts of Europe on the night of 1 November 2016.

On the back of a large low-pressure system over north-eastern Europe air masses are performed with temperatures around minus -35 ° C in approximately 5500 m height to Central Europe in a broad stream.

Nach dem bisher kalten Oktober 2016 nicht nur in Deutschland drohen die Wettermodelle mit einem ungewöhnlich frühen Wintereinbruch zum Monatswechsel Oktober/November 2016.

Dabei sind Schneefälle bis ins Flachland möglich.

GFS rechnet heute mit einem käftigen Einbruch hochreichender eisiger Polarluft in großen Teilen Europas in der Nacht zum 1. November 2016.

Auf der Rückseite eines umfangreichen Sturmtiefs über Nordosteuropa werden in breitem Strom Luftmassen mit Temperaturen um minus -35°C in rund 5500 m Höhe nach Mitteleuropa geführt.

Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever: ‘We’re Told That The Ice In Greenland Will Disappear’ … But There’s No Warming There (Video)

Coldest-years-in-Greenland

Where’s the warming in Greenland? – Video:

“We’re told that the ice in Greenland will disappear,” says Nobel Laureate Ivar Giaever. But there’s no warming there.

“There’s information on the internet, which is wonderful, says Giaever. “And I looked it up.”

There are four harbors in Greenland, says Giaever. They are Upernavik, Iluissat/Jakobshavn, Nuuk/Godthab and Tasiilaq/Ammassalik.

Look at Giaever’s chart. On the left you see the five coldest years. On the right, the five warmest years.

Now look at the dates. “The warmest years are basically in the 1930s,” says Giaever. “Those are the facts. Those are the temperatures the people in the harbors in Greenland has measured over the years. And it doesn’t look like it’s getting any warmer.”

Camp Century, Greenland: The Nuclear Powered City Under The Ice (Video)

H/t reader M.G.:

“Here is a scary news item…..the US built a city under the ice in Greenland in the 1960s, and it is nuclear powered.
Funny, I was a young woman in the 1960s, I never heard about this city……….”



Jul 28, 2013

Description:

Camp Century was an Army research station located under the ice in Greenland. It was powered initially by diesel generators, but the long term plan was nuclear power due to the challenge of delivering fuel across the ice.
On January 23, 1959, the US Army signed a contract with ALCO (American Locomotive Company) to design and build a reactor that could be prefabricated in the US, disassembled and delivered to Camp Century. The required timeline was short and there were contract penalties of up to $4,000 per day for missing the agreed delivery date.

Greenland ice sheet gained record amounts of ice this season

Greenland ice sheet gained record amounts of ice this season (Ice Age Now, Jan 2, 2015):

Also breaks record for one-day gain in ice mass.

The Greenland ice sheet has gained record amounts of ice this season (300 billion tons) , says the steven goddard website.

It also boasted a record one-day accumulation of 12 billion tons in mid-September.

Why is Greenland so rich these days? It said goodbye to the EU!


Britain used to have 80 per cent of European fish stocks (Photo: PA)

If you think that leaving the EU would be catastrophic, take a look at Greenland. By rights its people ought to be poor. Their island is isolated, suffers from freezing weather, has a workforce of only 28,000 and relies on fish for 82 per cent of its exports. But it turns out that since leaving the EU, Greenland has been so freed of EU red tape and of the destruction of the Common Fisheries Policy, that the average income of the islanders today is higher than those living in Britain, Germany and France.

Greenland’s politicians realised that the fisheries policy was ruining their fishing industry. They had the guts to stand up against the all the prophets of doom and let their people vote in a referendum on leaving the European Community, as the EU was then called. On January 1, 1985, it became independent of Brussels – the only country ever to do so.

Greenland was, with Britain, one of only two EU countries to be heavily dependent on fishing. In fact, Britain had, in some estimates, 80 per cent of Europe’s fish stocks when it entered the EU, because our fishermen had carefully managed them, while the fisherman of Spain, France and Italy had destroyed most of the Mediterranean stocks.
