2010 Prediction by UN IPCC's Prof. Richard Alley, a Pennsylvania State University: "Sometime in the next decade we may pass that tipping point which would put us warmer than temperatures that Greenland can survive."
2020 Update: Paul Homewood's analysis: "Since then, however, Greenland’s temperatures have returned to normal, and are no higher than they were in the 1930s. Far from being the start of a new trend, 2010 was simply an outlier:
The Peterman Glacier is still more or less in the same position as it was ten years ago
Greenland’s major glaciers stopped retreating seven years ago
"A new reconstruction for SE Greenland (1796-2013) shows temperatures have risen and fallen without any hockey-stick-like trajectories for the last 200+ years. Temperatures were warmer than today in the 1920s and 1940s and even briefly during the 1800s."
Greenland: "Most of the ice loss is the result of receding glacier fronts, but the DMI confirmed in Nov 2018 that glaciers have more or less maintained their area since 2012. There is therefore no evidence of accelerating ice loss since 2003.
The claim that the Greenland icecap has been losing ice at a faster rate than in the 1990s is true, but it is also a red herring and has no bearing on future rates of loss. In 2003, scientists reported that Greenland had cooled significantly between 1958 and 2001. Unsurprisingly during this period of cooling ice loss slowed markedly. Since 2001, temperatures have recovered to levels generally seen in the 1930s and 40s (Fig 2), with a resultant increase in ice loss."
"Globally, sea levels have been rising steadily at a rate of about 2mm a year since the late 19thC, with a slow down between the 1960s and 90s. And, as the IPCC’s latest Assessment Report pointed out, the recent rate of rise has been similar to that between 1920 and 1950."
The coldest ever day recorded in Greenland stands at -63.3 C (minus 81 F). But on January 2nd in 2020, after Greenland suffered a century of global warming, the thermometer at Summit Camp sunk to at least -64.9C.
