As billions continue to struggle simply to find enough energy to cook a daily meal, we must not forget the terrible confusion and heartbreak that confronts Greenland climate researchers that are constantly and profoundly taunted by the whims of their beloved frozen hellscape, Greenland.
Despite evidence (the real type, not based on models from The Sims) of the existence of 620 Viking farms from around 1000-1500AD clearly showing the region enjoyed (pun intended) a much warmer, non-human-influenced climate in the past, our sad researchers (fully paid up on scientific grants) can’t sleep at night knowing that, well, as one of them puts it in the article below:
“The message of instability that Greenland is sending is terrible.”
We can only imagine the messages the old Vikings must have been getting back in 1000AD as they started successfully planting food crops in the same locations currently covered in snow and ice!
Or the messages that the sassy, devilish island sent them around 1500AD when it started freezing over again and wiped out their farms and colonies.
You can fully understand why modern, rich and healthy first world ‘researchers’ are so alarmed by the world’s largest island’s current bout of erratic, Kanye-style messaging, given in the end there’s actually very little change from previous years and decades, even if they try to spin every detail to appear as objectively negative as possible, as amply evident in the article we reference below.
Well, that’s how you continue to get the grant funding of course. The old “it’s actually pretty fine, nothing much is really happening” just doesn’t cut it on the grant continuation claim forms…
If only Greenland would melt back to 1000-1500AD conditions again. At least then these guys and gals could build a nice ranch there and set up a WhatsApp group with the grand old Green (but mostly white) land.
NOTE: Interestingly, this article came out on a day of very high, well above average Surface Mass gain for old Greenland. It’s almost like the narrative is completely out of line with the real world, what a surprise…
In the end, the high amount of ice loss from glacial calving and submarine melting significantly affected the ice sheet’s mass balance for this year. But it might have been worse, had the surface mass accumulation not been so high. In 2019, low winter snowfall plus a warm summer resulted in a net ice loss of 329 gigatons.
The 2020-2021 period “was not close to a record, which I’m very thankful for, but it was another year where we were overall losing ice and not gaining it on the ice sheet,” said Twila Moon, a researcher with the National Snow and Ice Data Center.
