Greenland's Ice Wasn't Supposed to Melt Like Last Week Until 2070

The estimates have been, and apparently will continue to be, WAY off the mark. Dangerously optimistic.


Thanks to Thomas Mote, an ice scientist, for this article. This type of outreach really helps, though I cannot fail to note that this is only the second comment. I assume politics is more everyone’s cup of tea.

I would imagine Greta Thundberg is tuned in though. It is almost obscene that hope is presently riding on the shoulders of a sixteen year old, rather than a world ‘leader’ !

On the bright side: The majority of the earth’s citizens won’t get off their collective asses to demand a firm transition off of fossil fuels until sea levels rise at least 1 foot – and now we’re getting to that mark faster.


Now THAT’s optimism I can agree with!! , LOL
