– “Satellites See Unprecedented Greenland Ice Sheet Surface Melt”
“For several days this month, Greenland’s surface ice cover melted over a larger area than at any time in more than 30 years of satellite observations. Nearly the entire ice cover of Greenland, from its thin, low-lying coastal edges to its two-mile-thick center, experienced some degree of melting at its surface, according to measurements from three independent satellites analyzed by NASA and university scientists,” quoting NASA.

“Vast new deposits of minerals and gems are being discovered as Greenland’s massive ice cap recedes, forming the basis of a potentially lucrative mining industry.”

“Mining profits could help Greenland become economically self sufficient, and may someday even render it the first sovereign nation created by global warming,,” quoting Elisabeth Rosenthal in the New York Times.

“The impending onset of the negative (cold) phase of the AMO can be predicted by a slowing of North Atlantic ocean currents, which has recently been observed.”

“Writing in the journal Nature, lead researcher Gerard McCarthy says that since the new negative phase of the AMO could be a degree cooler, it may temporarily offset the effects of global warming in some areas,” quoting EarthWeek.

“Greenland’s undercut glaciers melting faster than thought”

“Greenland’s glaciers flowing into the ocean are grounded deeper below sea level than previously measured, allowing intruding ocean water to badly undercut the glacier faces. That process will raise sea levels around the world much faster than currently estimated, according to a team of researchers led by Eric Rignot of the University of California, Irvine (UCI), and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California.

The researchers battled rough waters and an onslaught of icebergs for three summers to map the remote channels below Greenland’s marine-terminating glaciers for the first time. Their results have been accepted for publication in the journal Geophysical Research Letters and are now available online,” by Alan Buis, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Janet Wilson, University of California, Irvine.

– Ramtha on the effects of Greenland’s glaciers rapid melt
– “It is no coincidence being in London in the very place that will soon be covered with ice — not a lot of ice but enough to say this is a knock on your door — that after I left [September, 2010] , scientists make this breakthrough explanation that the current belt that brings that warm water up to the Far North of Europe and to the Atlantic seaboard is less now than half of its ability.
More cold water from the melting of Greenland is sloughing off in the North Sea, and the winds from the North that are cooling down everything could stop this current conveyor belt. And do you know what happens when it stops? You have winter in the most severe ways. That is already under way.
To all of Europe — including right down to the ankle of Italy — an ice is coming, a warning is coming. That nasty little environment will start to show itself only slightly this winter, so look for strange ice storms in Europe and the American north, and even look for them around the equator.
So what we have is an introduction to the violence of nature, a calling card. 2011 will be all about calling cards all over the world.”

– “Now your world is in trouble. Your icecaps are melting. The North Pole’s icecaps are melting and when all that cold water enters Greenland in the upper Atlantic, the flow of warm water will cease in Atlatia and in a short time you are going to have catastrophic conditions in the world.”
