Jakobshavn Isbrae
Mighty Greenland glacier slams on brakes

Where previously this was dropping in height by 20m a year, it's now thickening by 20m a year.

"All this is a reminder of how unpredictable glaciers can be," she told BBC News. "We didn't predict this change in behaviour, and if Jakobshavn does start thinning and retreating again - we can't predict when that will happen.

"The rate of sea-level contribution from Greenland has slowed in recent years and it's because some of the biggest ice evacuators like Jakobshavn aren't contributing as much as they used to."


The noise you heard was moi falling off my chair when I read that on a BBC website. Cool

The fact that opinion is widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Noooo! They didn't get the modelling wrong did they??

Will they apologise in a headline of the Gardy and on the ABC?
