DMI Show Greenland Was Warmer in 1930’s

The facts are in the data. Any Greenland melt that has occurred over the past decades has nothing to do with increased CO2 in the atmosphere and had everything to do with the AMO.

Also, temps are not up or even above the average running mean when compared to previous decades such as the 30s and 40s.

Annual Mean Temperatures

Apart from the anomalously high temperatures in 2010, it is self evident that since 2000 temperatures across the board have been at a similar…
