got the difficult task of retrieving our oceanographic moorings and weather station on sea ice in North West Greenland this year. Rapid melt and sea ice with low permeability and few cracks leaves the melt water on top. pic.twitter.com/ytlBDTrVeD

The Arctic receives more solar radiation this time of year than any place else on Earth, and temperatures can be very hot north of the Arctic Circle.
The total energy received each day at the top of the atmosphere depends on latitude. The highest daily amounts of incoming energy (pale pink) occur at high latitudes in summer, when days are long, rather than at the equator.
Group - Women - Arctic - Ocean - Hot
In 1927, a group of women tried to drive to the Arctic Ocean. Hot weather, melting permafrost and forest fires forced them to abandon their expedition.

Every time there is a warm day in the Arctic now, ambulance chasing journalists announce the apocalypse. Fox News says Greenland is having an ice crisis, and is being flooded by “melting glacial waters.”
Mesmerizing - Photo - Olsen - June - Ice
The mesmerizing photo Olsen snapped on June 13 as they waded over the splashy ice sheet gives the illusion that his dogs are walking on water — but it’s anything but a trick. Experts saythis image is indicative of the planet’s climate crisis.
The current round of climate nonsense started with this tweet, which journalists immediately picked up and misinterpreted.

Rasmus Tonboe on Twitter:
The guy who took the picture made it very clear that it had nothing to do with glacial ice, it was sea ice melting on its surface.
Fox - News - Distortion
Then Fox News followed up with this gross distortion.
Olsen himself is calling for immediate action:
Anything - Capabilities - Weather - Forecast - Ventusky
He didn’t say anything like that. He called for increased predictive capabilities, which is pretty dubious because I saw the warm weather forecast on Ventusky several days ahead of time.
