Americans for Prosperity president: "This administration has had an almost obsessive focus on their global warming agenda." Sigh.
The loss of ice from the glaciers that cover the island is about 30 percent faster than it was a decade ago, researchers said. That means Greenland's contribution to future sea level rise would be about 4 inches by the year 2100 if ice loss doesn't speed up much more, a study author said.
...The glaciers have been melting under warmer summer temperatures in Greenland that on average are up by about 2 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) over the last decade, study authors said.
One famous glacier on northwestern Greenland called Jakobshavn is now losing ice at a particularly fast pace of 7 miles (11.3 kilometers) per year. That means an ice loss of nearly 3 feet (1 meter) of ice every hour. If you stare at the glacier for about 20 minutes you can notice it move, said University of California Irvine glacier expert Eric Rignot, who wasn't part of the study.
A LEADING North East industrialist is angry and worried the carbon tax will slug his business more than $1 million a year and cost jobs.
Below are James’ quick thoughts on the piece, and the video of the story. These folks really need to attend Heartland’s Seventh International Conference on Climate Change (and so should you!). The idea that sound climate science backs up the alarmist narrative is a stubborn myth.
FAIRBANKS — The high temperature at Fairbanks International Airport on Tuesday was 32 degrees, which was the lowest high temperature ever observed on May 1 in Fairbanks. The old record low high temperature was 34 degrees in 1999.
It also was the lowest high temperature observed in the month of May since 2001 when the high temperature was 31 on May 3.
