On the back of substantial Surface Mass Balance (SMB) gains since 2016 (which coincide with a stark drop in Earth’s average temperature), the Greenland ice sheet is increasing that trend of GROWTH in 2021.
Despite MSM obfuscations, vast regions of Greenland are currently gaining record levels of snow and ice:
Back on May 26, a single day gain of more than 12 gigatons was logged sending the official SMB chart –courtesy of the Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI)– into historic territory, that blue line literally shot off the charts.
Further record-breaking gains were logged throughout June, most notably on June 24 when a gain of 4 gigatons was logged, which was an astonishing accumulation for the time of year — never before in the month of June had the Greenland ice sheet grown by 4 Gts in a single day (according to DMI data which extends to 1981).
And now, this record-breaking growth is continuing into mid-summer.
Yesterday, July 14, Greenland actually gained mass (approx. 2 Gts) — an unprecedented feat this late into the year. Between early-June to early-August the ice sheet experiences its summer melt season, a time when the sheet, on average, loses around 4-6 Gts of mass a day; however, something unexpected is happening this year — the world’s largest island has actually been GAINING between 2-4 Gts of mass all summer:
Again, the raw data speaks for itself.
No spin necessary.
[I would have included another graph here, but the DMI website has just gone down — maybe those historic summer gains needed a little ‘adjusting’…?]

The COLD TIMES are returning, the mid-latitudes are REFREEZING, in line with the great conjunction, historically low solar activity, cloud-nucleating Cosmic Rays, and a meridional jet stream flow (among other forcings).Both NOAA and NASA appear to agree, if you read between the lines, with NOAA saying we’re entering a ‘full-blown’ Grand Solar Minimum in the late-2020s, and NASA seeing this upcoming solar cycle (25) as “the weakest of the past 200 years”, with the agency correlating previous solar shutdowns to prolonged periods of global cooling here.Furthermore, we can’t ignore the slew of new scientific papers stating the immense impact The Beaufort Gyre could have on the Gulf Stream, and therefore the climate overall.
Prepare accordingly— learn the facts, relocate if need be, and grow your own.
