Maybe even a record breaker. “The non-commencement of the thaw in Greenland at the end of May is without precedent in past years, at least since 1990.”
“Greenland to historic failure thaw Record: accumulations for the mass balance of Greenland …!” reads the headline on freddofili.it/.
31 May 2016 – In recent years, the glacial mass balance of Greenland is increasing despite announcements that global temperatures are on the rise; despite warnings that the Greenland Ice Sheet is melting; and despite announcements of a possible “blocked Gulf Stream “or catastrophic increase in sea level .”
The fact is, that snowfalls are higher than the amount of ice that melts, and the mass balance is strongly positive again this year.
Not only that, we are to the historical record for the end of the month of May: never before to have no thaw on this date!
I had not heard this from other sources. Does anyone know if freddofili.it/ is a reliable source?
