Yeah it's probably pointless even bringing this stuff up anymore. ''...but what the bleep. Seems the End of the World continues though lately at a slightly faster pace.
Greenland is melting.
Sure we all know that. It's just going a bit faster that we thought. Seems they're having a late Spring heatwave up there. Sort of like the heatwave the Arctic had last winter where temps that should have been below 0f were instead hovering near 70f.
It's warmer in Greenland this week than it is in the Bronx.
Nuuk, Greenland’s capital, soared to 75 degrees (24 Celsius) Thursday, marking the warmest temperature ever recorded in the Arctic country during June. Nuuk sits on Greenland’s southwest coast, where the country’s warmest weather typically occurs.
It was warmer in Nuuk than it was in New York City, where the high was only 71 degrees.
The Danish Meteorological Institute has confirmed on a preliminary basis that the Nuuk measurement would replace the previous record of 73.8 degrees (23.2 Celsius), which was set in Kangerlussuaq on June 15 in 2014. That temperature was also recorded in southwest Greenland about 200 miles (320 km) north of Nuuk.
Thursday’s toasty reading in Nuuk marks the second exceptionally warm temperature recorded in southwest Greenland since April, when the ice melt season began about a month prematurely.
On April 11, Kangerlussuaq hit a record high of 64.4 degrees (17.8 Celsius). “This was the warmest April temperature on record at that location, and it nearly set an all-time warm temperature record for Greenland as a whole,” reported Mashable’s Andrew Freedman.
“This is the earliest onset of ice loss in our 27-year record", said climate scientist Peter Langen.
