This 2015 University of California article has lots of climate propaganda key phrases, invoking fear, terror, it is getting worse, and appeals to authority.

A glacier in northeast Greenland that holds enough water to raise global sea levels by more than 18 inches has come unmoored from a stabilizing sill and is crumbling into the North Atlantic Ocean. Losing mass at a rate of 5 billion tons per year, glacier Zachariae Isstrom entered a phase of accelerated retreat in 2012, according to findings published in the current issue of Science.

The research team – including scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and the University of Kansas – used data from aerial surveys conducted by NASA’s Operation IceBridge and satellite-based observations acquired by multiple international space agencies (NASA, ESA, CSA, DLR, JAXA and ASI) coordinated by the Polar Space Task Group.

The glacier didn’t actually retreat at all from 2012 to 2019.

In 1939, all of the glaciers in Greenland were melting rapidly and facing “catastrophic collapse.”

Greenland’s largest glacier shrank rapidly during the second half of the 19th century.

But that glacier is growing now, and National Geographic says it is bad news.

A Greenland glacier is growing. That’s not good news

The largest glacier in Northern Greenland (Petermann) has also grown since 2012

According to NASA, glaciers melt when earth is cold, and grow when earth is warm.

The largest ice cap in Greenland didn’t exist 4,000 years ago, because temperatures were too warm during the Holocene Optimum.

But science and reality are inconvenient, so academics and journalists erase it, and call their fraud “science.”
