Is the Greenland ice sheet melting from man made global warming? Well according to the Heartland Institute, this claim is becoming highly suspect. The reason is that scientists from the Danish Meteorological Institute recently correlated surface temperature readings and ice core data dating back to 1784 and found, astonishingly, that the last two decades of the twentieth century were colder than the previous six. In fact, Greenland temperatures in the 1980’s and 90’s were a full 1.5 degrees Celsius lower than those of the 1930’s and 40’s, thus completely contradicting assertions made by climate change proponents and their modeling. Time will tell whether these new findings will chill out concerns about rising temperatures in Greenland.
