    Really nothing new here. The same had been reported 5 years ago (Byrd Polar Research Center, Jason Box)…these pictures only further show that the warming that we experienced since the industrial revolution began continues today. The cooling period in-between is what scientists find interesting. Possibly due to sulfur pollution, which then was curtailed.
    But the fact remains that more glaciers are retreating today in Greenland than in the 30’s, the average rate of melt in the 30’s was 20 meters per year and today it is 50 meters per year, and in the 30’s most of the melt was in land glaciers while today it is in glaciers ending at the sea, thus contributing to sea level rise.
