Greenland has gained 27+ gigatons of snow and ice over the past 5 days alone - MSM silent

Greenland ice sheet

Despite decades of doom-and-gloom prophecies, Greenland's Ice Sheet is currently GAINING monster amounts of "mass" — 27 gigatons over the past 5 days alone (April 14 - 18, 2020).

Crucial to the survival of a glacier is its surface mass balance (SMB) - the difference between accumulation and ablation (sublimation and melting). Changes in mass balance control a glacier's long-term behavior, and are its most sensitive climate indicators.

On the back of substantial SMB gains over the past few years, the Greenland ice sheet looks set to continue that trend in 2019-20. From April 14 through April 18, 2020, the world's largest island added a monster 27+ gigatons to its ice sheet. According to climate alarmists, this simply shouldn't be happening in a warming world. In fact, it might as well not be happening as developments like these NEVER receive MSM attention, meaning alarmists are NEVER privy to the full and unalarming picture...

'Arctic April' grips North America breaking hundreds of all-time cold records

Record cold in North America

Record cold and snowfall hit many parts of North America over the Easter weekend, continuing what has so far been a largely Arctic April.

Records were toppled across many U.S. states, with Montana, Iowa, South Dakota, and Colorado seemingly worst hit.

A winter storm system moved through Iowa on Sunday delivering between three inches and a foot to the majority of locations — several northern Iowa towns saw their all-time records tumble:

The 3.7 inches reported at Sioux Gateway Airport broke the record for April 12th; it also made it the second highest Easter snowfall ever behind the 4.7 inches during Easter 1929.

The town of Ringsted in Emmet County (also Iowa) came in with a record-busting 11 inches. Robert "Lightning" Petersen was the man to logged the new record — he uses his back yard to park measuring equipment to keep track of snowfall, and rainfall. He works in concert with the National Weather Service out of Johnston.

When the snow fell on Easter Sunday, he checked his 12-inch gauge and was shocked to discover the almost 1 foot total, reports whotv.com/news.

"I was flabbergasted because it was not a blizzard activity during the day," said Petersen. "But holy smokes, when I got that gauge up on the deck, it was plum full. I thought it can't be. I must be seeing things."

THE FINNISH METEOROLOGICAL INSTITUTE (FMI) has reported that parts of Northern and Central Finland have received record amounts of snowfall in recent days, with the greatest amounts of snowfall being recorded at Paljakka and Sodankylä in Lapland.

At Sodankylä, the record was broken today when the weather station recorded 125 centimetres of snow in the region.

Southern Finland, meanwhile, has experienced one of the mildest winters in recent memory.
