Greenland Snow Cover Has Expanded By 1000 Manhattans Since 1974…Clear Rising Trend!

A year ago guest writer Ed Caryl wrote a report here telling us that Greenland was getting more snow cover, and not less. A year later we take another look to see if the trend is continuing:

Greenland is melting? Where? The chart shows there is about 80,000 square km more snow cover today than in 1974. That’s the same as almost 1000 Manhattans.

When a piece of glacier the size of Manhattan breaks off and floats into the ocean, the media freak out about it? But when Greenland snow cover jumps a whopping 80,000 sq. km, we don’t here a peep.

Northern Hemisphere snow cover now 4th highest in 35 years

“Well, Greenland is a regional phenomenon,” the alarmists may claim. “We have to look at the entire Northern hemisphere”.

A few days ago we looked at December snow cover. So let’s look at the weekly snow cover for the northern hemisphere every year since 1966. Well, that too shows NO TREND!

Where’s the melting?

Snow cover over the Northern Hemisphere currently (31 December 2012) is the 4th highest in 35 years!

    Looking at the graph of the Greenland ice cover, you would not understand the “Another Ice Age” worries in the Time magazine of 1974.

    Where is the correlation to the global temperature?
    Is the Greenland ice cover more a local event – weather?
    Would this mean that the ice core data can’t be used to show the global temperature in detail? Maybe just a indication how the temperature was?

    Where are they now?
    “But now that the climate is warming, it is not just old trees that are growing. A Greenlandic supermarket is stocking locally grown cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage this year for the first time.”

    The most interesting thing is that the summer minimums are much higher than before.
