ARCTIC SUMMER SNOWSTORM
By Joseph DAleo CCM
Remember a year ago when few days of July warmth with strong blocking over Greenland had the media abuzz over some melting?
Last July a brief spell of temperatures in the mid 30s had caused some surface slush formation on top of the 1 to 1.5 mile thick Greenland ice. The NASA sensors merely color-coded the phase of the water ice (white), mixed water and ice (rose) and none (land grey). Rose meant some surface liquid. For Greenland, business as usual, because 150 years ago, there were no satellites to record the event.
It quickly refroze in a few days even before the flurry of news stories hyping it stopped.

More on the Globe Warming.....NOT!
Gee, how on earth did the world survive the MWP, when they grew grapes on Greenland?
I've yet to hear some kind of a coherent explanation from the warmists about the warming period in Greenland (and obviously a lot of other places) more than one thousand years ago. It's like they refuse to acknowledge the fact that a large area of the Earth had a tremendous warming period for about 400 years without internal combustion engines or many humans for that matter burning whatever and adding too much carbon to the atmosphere. It went down the memory hole...something leftists have a habit of doing with things that contradict their agenda.
Men have to take special precaution to urinate and not get frost bite on their penis. There is a short time limit human skin can be directly in that cold (they do time it). The second time he was there, one of that group had to leave due to frost bite. I saw a film of a man that happened to, it's the film to instruct them and show them what would happen. Severe frost bite turns skin gray/black. The man in the film had to be flown for surgery.
It is necessary human functions that threaten one’s life on the ice pack every day and I doubt many have thought of that.
No country for old men.
Now Greenland is a barren land
A land that bares no green
Where there's ice and snow, and the whalefishes blow
And the daylight's seldom seen, brave boys
And the daylight's seldom seen
Oh, gee...will the greenies & pols believe this story,
or THIS one?
“The global impact of a warming Arctic is an economic time-bomb, said Gail Whiteman, an author of the report and professor of sustainability, management and climate change at the Rotterdam School of Management, part of Erasmus University.
In the absence of climate-change mitigation measures, the model calculates that it would increase mean global climate impacts by $60 trillion, said Chris Hope, a reader in policy modelling at the Cambridge Judge Business School, part of the University of Cambridge.”

After having been on the ice cap for three months, my son said they had seen nothing but white that three months and when they saw color again, it smashed into their brains in a color flash. We take color for granted, but when deprived of it that long, our brains have to adjust to color.
“No country for old men.”
That’s true, it was an older man on that second trip who got frost bite and had to leave - he stayed uncovered too long.
For Greenland, business as usual, because 150 years ago, there were no satellites to record the event.
This is exactly it. We had NO technology to measure this stuff even 100 years ago.
Only idiot humans would look at something and think ‘It must have looked this SINCE TIME BEGAN!’
LOL Git ‘er done!
