And at CBS climate liars are hard at work.

 

This is what summer meltdown in Greenland looks like:

Meanwhile, this summer has started off as a cold one.

Angmagssalik and Nuuk are on opposite coasts, so give good geographic coverage.

The CBS claim about a temperature of 27F at Summit is so naive that it barely deserves a comment. As anybody who has been skiing knows full well, when you are up a mountain and the sun comes out, it can get very warm with the sunlight reflecting of the snow.

    “….. it’s 27 degrees above zero”

    But that’s degF, so it’s still below freezing.

      Do you know for certain it degrees F?
      I can’t see in the article where it specifies whether it’s F or C, which is bad practice in itself.

      “This summer, the sun is shining and the ice is thinning; it’s 27 degrees above zero — 62 degrees warmer. Researchers are trying to determine if the warming is a trend.”

      62 degrees in 8 years, I hope it isn’t a trend!

      Personally, I haven’t used F for years, because apart from anything else, zero F is a meaningless number. I think C should always be used in a “scientific” context.

        And ‘K’ for differences.

        To help the likes of Katharine Hayhoe post correctly labelled charts on her own F/book page.

        Celsius should be used in science contexts. However, since Americans never converted to metric and are generally clueless on the difference between C and F, I have a chart and try to include both. Since many write-ups include K, I have a conversion chart for all three. People with degrees in science are probably more comfortable with metric than others.

        It would be great if you could get Americans to convert or at least understand the difference, but way back in 1978 I bought my mother a t-shirt with metric conversions because she was afraid Amercia would convert. She worried for nothing…..

        Gotta love the way the Yanks try to blame the Limeys, for using a system of measurement we abandoned many years earlier:

        I’m still on groats and chains!

    Funny how they never miss the highs but are consistantly absent from the lows. Record snow? Where???? What a bunch of dishonest magicians hoping people are too stupid to notice the bias. What I fear most is that they are correct on the stupid assessment.

    Last fall, our temperature went from 50F to −20F in about 24 hours. It killed multiple trees, etc. No one came to find out how the temperature dropped that far, nor why the cold remained for a week.

    It is extremely common in some areas to see a 50F or more change in one day. It’s not what the temperature was 8 years ago versus today that matters. Daily temperatures have HUGE ranges over both the long term and short term. This is why using a temperature average and anomalies is supposed to be more accurate. Absolute temperatures vary tremendously. (Of course, averages and anomalies can be manipulated which may help the cause.)

    ONE day is IRRELEVENT. Completely, totally irrelevent. 10 years is too short—or at least that’s what the climate gurus always said. So CBS is putting out propaganda, not science.

      Right. Makes for great headlines. CBS long ago abandoned the idea that journalism is a noble profession meant to keep those in power from abusing it by fact checking and asking difficult questions of public officials. Today we get pansies asking junk queries of a certain female presidential candidate along the lines of “What’s your favorite flavour of ice cream?”

      Walter Kronkite is rolling over in his grave.
