The Greenland ice sheet is finally receding a little bit, after more than 70 years of cooling temperatures and long-term ice sheet advance. Global warming alarmists are predictably claiming the halt to Greenland’s ice sheet advance is a climate catastrophe.
Cherry-picking an extremely short time period, lasting less than a decade, researchers report the Greenland ice sheet retreated some during a nine-year period ending last April.
“Now, there’s more ice leaving than snow arriving,” said study co-author Michael Bevis in USA Today.
As Environment & Climate News previously reported, the 1980s and 1990s were the two coldest decades in Greenland since the 1910s. The 1980s and 1990s were a full 1.5 degrees Celsius colder than the 1930s and 1940s. As Greenland temperatures rebound from the extended cold spell, it stands to reason that the ice sheet will recede some.
Nevertheless, the media are spinning the foreseeable and fortuitous development as another global warming crisis.
Examining data from satellites, a U.S. research team declares that “from this remarkable 30-year archive of satellite imagery, we thus see evidence of a greening trend,” which clearly indicates the net result of the climatic and physiological effects of atmospheric CO2 enrichment on Earth’s terrestrial plant life has in the mean been decidedly beneficial...

Despite the growing worldwide recognition that global warming—now called climate change—is a hoax and that the Earth has been in a cooling cycle going on seventeen years, those most responsible for it continue to put forth baseless “science” about it.
The hoax has its base in the United Nations which is hosme to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and got its start with the Kyoto Protocol in 1997 that went into force in 2005. It limits “greenhouse gas” emissions, primarily...
