Greenland Hits Record 75°F, Sets Melt Record As Globe Aims At Hottest Year

First published on, a project of the Center for American Progress Action Fund, which was recently named one of Time magazine’s Top 25 blogs of 2010.

Greenland has been shockingly warm this spring. That’s not good news in a country covered with enough ice to raise sea levels more than 20 feet.

      Yes, I agree that Greenland has “enough ice to raise sea levels more than 20 feet”. I have calculated it also but that is not much compared with the fact that the potential energy of the glacier of Greenland is about 900.000 times the energy that the tsunami in the Indian Ocean in December 2004 was said have discharged into the ocean, causing the death of about 300.000 people.

      Obviously, you don’t know such an Arctic annual phenomenon as the ice-shedding but to me, it is very familiar because I am living at the southern rim of the Arctic. Try to imagine eg. the Mackenzie River in Canada or Lena in Siberia when the river is shedding its ice-cover in spring. Then try to multiply that phenomenon by a million in your mind and try to imagine the consequences of that kind of an energy eruption. Have you ever seen even one Arctic river shedding its ice-cover in the spring? I doubt it. So, the rising of the sea level by 20 feet is not the real problem. The real problem is much, very much bigger.

      During an ice-shedding, there is another ice-phenomenon, namely an ice-dam that is built up here and there on the course of the river that is shedding its ice. In some narrow place, ice is amassing so abundantly that it stops the river running. An ice-dam is created, more ice piles up and water rises on the upper side of the river. Eventually, the dam breaks up and an ice-water flood rushes down river, drowning more or less the environment and destroying it.

      The glacier of Greenland is like a vast ice-dam with an unimaginable potential energy, so huge that it is able to cause never experienced earthquakes and tsunamis to sweep all over the world until the Antarctic whose rim glaciers will discharge also, repeating the disaster. The glacier of Greenland is about two miles thick in the middle, and there is ice-water sludge under it with a pressure of about 300 atm as a lubrication. Only the smoothly sloping rim that still is firmly frozen on the base-rock under the permafrost, is keeping the ice-dam at bay, preventing it from discharging, but how long? Greenland is warming alarmingly fast as it is stated. One day, the rim cannot withstand but breaks up. Earthquakes much more than 10 on the Richter scale and sky-high tsunamis will follow. It will be a global disaster.

      I have studied this subject for more than 10 years, gathering knowledge, calculating many results with formulas derived from the general physics, as well as doing comparisons and conclusions. These I have explained in-depth in my book named “Ice-Shedding of Ages”. It can be found on Amazon and in several other places on the Internet.

      it would be devastating if that were to happen, reports of polar bears and other species are already finding it hard to survive in warmer climate, warmer ocean water also has had an effect on sealife, it’s not a secret government weather manipulation
