New Study: Arctic Was Much Warmer 6000 Years Ago... 90% Of Glaciers, Ice Caps Smaller Than Present Or Absent!

New Study: Arctic Was Much Warmer 6000 Years Ago… 90% Of Glaciers, Ice Caps Smaller Than Present Or Absent!

Climate alarmists hate this inconvenient fact: hundreds of temperature reconstructions show that the northern hemisphere was much warmer over much of the past 10,000 years (Holocene) than it is today. HAT-TIP: Klimaschau here Massive 66 temperature reconstructions One recent study: Arctic glaciers and ice caps through the Holocene: a circumpolar synthesis of lake-based reconstructions by […]

New Study: Alpine Glaciers Were Smaller Than Today For 7,400 Of The Last 10,000 Years

New Study: Alpine Glaciers Were Smaller Than Today For 7,400 Of The Last 10,000 Years

Swiss Alps glacier extents were smaller than 2000 C.E. during  the warmer-than-today Roman and Medieval Warm Periods and throughout 75% of the Holocene, or when temperatures were 1-3°C warmer. Schimmelpfennig et al., 2022 “…the glacier was smaller than its 2000 CE extent for a total of ∼7.4 kyr during the Holocene.” Image Source: Schimmelpfennig et al., 2022 Another […]

More Evidence: Glaciers Existing Today Were Absent For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years

More Evidence: Glaciers Existing Today Were Absent For Nearly All Of The Last 10,000 Years

The cryosphere is failing to cooperate with the anthropogenic global warming narrative that says rising greenhouse gas emissions should be catastrophically melting Arctic ice. Scientists (O’Regan et al., 2021) report Ryder Glacier in north Greenland has advanced 2,881 m from 1948-2015 given its advancing rate of 43 m/yr-1. Its modern ice extent is about 50 […]

Until Recently Scientists Believed Climate Change Has Been Melting Antarctic Glaciers. Now They Do Not.

Until Recently Scientists Believed Climate Change Has Been Melting Antarctic Glaciers. Now They Do Not.

According to a new study, 36% of 1979-2017 Antarctic ice loss was from the Thwaites and Pine Island glaciers. Scientists believed this glacier melt was due to anthropogenic climate change “until recently”. Now they say the glacier mass losses are due to the thin underlying crust and anomalously high geothermal heat in this region. We’ve […]

New Study: Retreating East Greenland Glaciers Uncover Plant Debris Dating To The 16th - 17th Centuries

New Study: Retreating East Greenland Glaciers Uncover Plant Debris Dating To The 16th – 17th Centuries

Exposed moss and willow shrubs buried beneath today’s receding East Greenland glaciers can be dated to 400 to 500 years ago, suggesting this period (the early Little Ice Age) was as-warm or warmer than today. It is widely accepted that Greenland’s surface temperatures were several degrees warmer (McFarlin et al., 2018, Axford et al., 2021) […]

Tree Remains Found Buried Beneath Today's Glaciers Date To The Warmer-Than-Today Medieval Warm Period

Tree Remains Found Buried Beneath Today’s Glaciers Date To The Warmer-Than-Today Medieval Warm Period

A new study (Kullman, 2021) suggests ~9000-year-old tree remains can be found buried in “currently empty snow hollows and glacier cirques” at elevations 600-700 m higher than where trees can grow today, implying a >3°C warmer Early Holocene climate. Treelines were still 75-100 m higher during the Medieval Warm Period…and even during the 15th and […]

Norway Glaciers Show Surprisingly Small Retreat During 2020..."Nigardsbreen Glacier Actually Grew"

Norway Glaciers Show Surprisingly Small Retreat During 2020…”Nigardsbreen Glacier Actually Grew”

As the globe has warmed since the end of the Little Ice Age, alarms concerning retreating glaciers have been sounded worldwide. The reason for the warming remains hotly disputed: alarmists blame it on manmade CO2 while skeptics say natural factors are just as much at play, if not more so. Image: Norwegian glace, for illustration […]

5 New Studies:  High Mountain Asia Glaciers Are Advancing, Surging...And This Is A 'Natural Phenomenon'

5 New Studies: High Mountain Asia Glaciers Are Advancing, Surging…And This Is A ‘Natural Phenomenon’

Glacier surges of 100s of meters within mere months have been occurring throughout High Mountain Asia (the Karakoram region, especially) for decades, even centuries. It’s the Karakoram “anomaly”, and it’s thought to be “natural”. So why are the regions where glaciers are retreating thought to be responding to unnatural climate changes? The advancing glaciers of […]

Number Of Studies Show Glaciers Internationally Were Smaller In Recent Past Than Today!

Number Of Studies Show Glaciers Internationally Were Smaller In Recent Past Than Today!

Former Iceland Prime Minister fed up with climate tourism: Glaciers used to be smaller than today By Die kalte Sonne [German text translated by P. Gosselin] Many glaciers are currently shrinking, as they have always done in the past when the climate warmed up. What’s the news on the glacier front? In August 2019, the […]

Austrian Weather Agency: "Glaciers Have Recovered" Due To A "Snowy Winter"...Record June Snow Depth!

Austrian Weather Agency: “Glaciers Have Recovered” Due To A “Snowy Winter”…Record June Snow Depth!

Austrian ZAMG national weather service here reports that the “glaciers have recovered” in the Alps due to a “snowy winter”. Image: foto.webcam.eu “Strongest growth in 20 years” ZAMG confirmed that last winter, the glaciers in the Hohe Tauern have grown more strongly than they have for 20 years. Austria’s ZAMG meteorological institute reminds, however, that the figures […]

Greenland Has Been Cooling In Recent Years - 26 Of Its 47 Largest Glaciers Now Stable Or Gaining Ice

Greenland Has Been Cooling In Recent Years – 26 Of Its 47 Largest Glaciers Now Stable Or Gaining Ice

A new analysis of recent trends for the Greenland ice sheet reveals that since 2012 there has been an abrupt slowing of melt rates and a trend reversal to cooling and ice growth. • In 2018, 26 of Greenland’s 47 largest glaciers were either stable or grew in size. • Overall, the 47 glaciers advanced […]

New Paper: Sweden Glaciers GAINED Mass From 1970-2001 After Rapid 1920s-'60s Retreat

New Paper: Sweden Glaciers GAINED Mass From 1970-2001 After Rapid 1920s-’60s Retreat

Glaciers in Sweden melted ~7 times faster during the 1920s to 1960s than from 1970 to 2015. Image Source: Holmlund and Holmlund, 2019 Image Source: Holmlund and Holmlund, 2019 “The strongest melt in the mass change curve […] occurs between the 1930s and 1960s, with the beginning of this negative trend occurring in the early […]
