Greenland melting at alarming rate.

Recommended Posts

wow... that is a huge difference. I guess people will have to start taking notice of this warming which so many see to be not real. The major fact with global warming is that most people don't experience the immediate effects of it. This makes it a less concerning problem since everyone believes "who cares, my house MAY be under water in 100 years, I wont be around then".

People don't give a crap about the future of other generations lives.

American forest fires are melting the ice on Greenland

October 3, 2014 - 06:23  By: Kristian Sjøgren
 

Forest fires are covering the ice sheets with black particles that make the ice melt faster.
 
This year there were more forest fires in the northern hemisphere than any other year for the past decade and that’s spelling problems for the ice sheet on Greenland. That’s the conclusion of a new study by Professor Jason Box from the Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland.

 

The fires mostly take place in uninhabited areas of North America, but they have become a global problem because carbon particles from the fires are spread across the globe by the wind.

 

A large part of these particles end up on the ice sheet on Greenland.

 

This darkens the top layer of the ice which means the heat from the sun is absorbed instead of being reflected, causing the ice to melt even faster.

 

"The dark ice has a major influence on how quickly the ice sheet melts," says Box.

 

He used satellite data to determine the amount and extent of forest fires in 2014 and measured how much the ice sheet has lost its ability to reflect the sun's light.

 

The ice is darker than ever

The graph shows the intensity of forest fires over the past 14 years. 2014 is at the top of the list with the highst energi-output since 2000. The consequence may well be that more carbon particles will rain on the ice sheet than in the previous years. (Illustration: Jason Box)

Some glaciers are getting bigger, some are melting.

 

 

Ground temps are changing in some parts, but not in others.

 

Deep sea thermal vents around Greenland were discovered erupting over 20 years ago, tens of thousands of vents pouring out superheated water ...

 

There are now MORE polar bears in existence than EVER before recorded - especially on Greenland.

 

 

Same on the antarctic - some parts are melting some are getting bigger - more snow - NOT melting.

 

 

Easy to cherry-pick a study, glacier or temp chart to validate ANY theory on climate change at present.

Hi Nex,

 

Were you referring to anything in particular, or were you just making a statement?

Wisely put, T

 

Fearing fear/death itself is the culprit in what We may call «The Most Critical Time in the Universe Ever Experienced Before»

Fearing change is de-evolution in action

 

I hope You like my input

Hi guys,

 

Since I resurrected this 2011 thread, I feel the need to justify why I posted the article I did.  The comments afterwards have totally thrown me, as I can't seem to relate them to the subject matter.  I mean, I really enjoy reading comments here on Chani (that's why I'm here!), but this has left me scratching my head, with a "huh?"

 

First of all, the article posted was purely an observation between the North American forest fires (there is a thread on Chani) and its effect on some of the ice sheets in Greenland.  

 

Not once did the author mention global climate change or global warming.  I made sure of that.  

 

Secondly, the way I see it, this thread is no different to other threads where we maintain a record of observations:

 

Wild Fires:  http://forums.thechaniproject.com/topic/3524-wild-fires/page-3?hl=+forest%20+fires

Planes, Trains, Automobiles & Cruise Liner Difficulties: http://forums.thechaniproject.com/topic/5872-planes-trains-automobiles-cruise-liner-difficulties/

 

 

As far as I can see, all these threads are a record of changes, and sometimes death is part of that equation too.  

 

T, I hope you didn't think that I posted this to increase the fear.  That was not my intention.  I just want to increase knowledge-base, just like everyone else here (I hope).  

 

Whether one chooses to attach emotion to observations, is purely the individuals choice.  

 

- Mes.
