Recently newspapers around the world trumpeted the alarm that glaciers in Greenland were melting at a rapid pace because of global warming. But according to the website Junkscience.com, its these pronouncements that need to be thawed out. For example, a study in the journal Science reported just last fall that, after examining the Greenland ice sheet from 1992-2003 using sophisticated radar devices, some Norwegian scientists actually discovered the glaciers in the interior landmass were growing by 5.4 centimeters per year, not shrinking. With even the worse scenarios showing it would take at least a millennium to melt Greenland’s ice sheet, it doesn’t appear we need to sweat out this latest buzz surrounding global warming.
