2012: The Year Greenland Melted (AKA Alarmists Gone Wild)

2012: The Year Greenland Melted (AKA Alarmists Gone Wild) | Kalaallit Nunaat - Greenland | Scoop.it

"Each and every [fill-in-the-blank]-sized iceberg to calve off Greenland or Antarctica triggers the same alarmist nonsense and glacial junk science journalism. Glaciers are rivers of ice. They flow downhill. When downhill is toward the ocean, they calve icebergs. Increased calving of icebergs is indicative of excess ice accumulation, not melting. Past glacial stages and stadials are associated with an increase in dropstones in marine sediment cores because icebergs calve more frequently when the source of ice is expanding."
