On The Ground In Greenland And Face To Face With The Reality Of Climate Change | Mach | NBC News



For many scientists, Greenland is a place where global warming’s impact is most apparent — and where the effects of rising temperatures, warming oceans and melting ice could have the most dire consequences. For the people who make their home on this massive, ice-covered island, the realities of climate change are complex, bringing both unexpected benefits and acute challenges.

  1. The ‘greenhouse effect’, in brief, is short wave, radiant, visible light that travels unimpeded thru the atmosphere and strikes and heats the Earth’s surface which then radiates heat back into the atmosphere as long waved infrared radiation where large atmospheric molecules like water vapor, carbon dioxide and methane slow down the escape of infrared radiation back into space. We had been living in the Goldilocks Zone of ‘not too much’ and ‘not too little’ of CO2. Not so, anymore.

    For those wanting to understand what the greenhouse effect (and more) is all about, begin by watching the following 3 minute PBS clip that is followed by a collection of other clips:

  2. NOBODY has proven that CO2 increases have CAUSED warming.
    Correlation is NOT causation … especially since the data tend to support the idea that CO2 has lagged warming, not the other way around.
    Also, 8 or 12 "ice samples" is NOT enough to even prove what levels existed in the past.
    I re-read my Meteorology texts from the late 1970s. They suggest that the planet was 3 – 5 degrees WARMER when Christ walked the Earth. That book – even then – tried to make man out as the culprit for many ills on the planet so it was not some "right winger's" book.
    How do you measure CO2 after you hit the BOTTOM of the ice pack? What year did that bottom (first) layer of ice start?
    Who has proven that the planet ALWAYS has had ice covering the poles?
    Then there is the "modern" data that we KNOW NOAA has manipulated. Why not use the RAW data if you're so sure warming has occurred? WHY CHANGE it, then decide that historical data has to be changed as well? If you mess with the data, then your data ceases to be DATA.

  3. Climate Change is fake. Obama just purchased a $15 MILLION home on Martha's Vineyard on the beach. Either Barack Obama:
    1- is the stupidest human being
    2- knows Climate Change is fake and is spending his new billion $$$ he stole????

  4. If I was 30 not 60 Id be moving north, prospecting Greenland, and laying mineral claims.

  5. This climate has been changing for millions of years
    Some years colder, Some years warmer
    However, I certainly am not buying into this Uber leftist democrat tax and regulation agenda

  6. Yes…if every speck of ice in Greenland were to melt…the World's Oceans will rise…a staggering 1/100th. of a millimeter!  ( Time for the 'sackcloth & ashes' replete with a Greek chorus of lamentations…woe is us! )

  7. "But… think of the munnies! What purpose will I have without the munnies?!"

  8. The real climate change is coming… "But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up." 2 Peter 3:10

  9. Not just flooding. Bare rock soaks up heat. More water soaks up heat. That's a warmer temperature for the planet and more acidic waters killing algae that creates 75% of the oxygen on the planet!.
