I don't think that means what you think it means...

Team finds subtropical waters flushing through Greenland fjord

I have a couple issues with this (IMHO) alarmist piece...
Deep inside the Sermilik Fjord, researchers found subtropical water as warm as 39 degrees Fahrenheit (4 degrees Celsius).
39 degrees is NOT subtropical.
And it's "...UP TO 39 Degrees"???
Ninja, please.

From our "talking-out-both-sides-of-your-mouth" department-
"This is the first time we've seen waters this warm in any of the fjords in Greenland," says Straneo.

But then:
"This is the first extensive survey of one of these fjords that shows us how these warm waters circulate and how vigorous the circulation is," says Straneo.
So... You're saying this is the first time you've ever seen anything here... so you don't have anything to compare to.


"The team also reconstructed seasonal temperatures on the shelf using data collected by 19 hooded seals ..."

Ok... I'm no longer paying any attention to computer models, reconstructions, simulations, artificial intelligence, predictive technology, computer-aided testing or anything else remotely resembling scientific wild-ass guesses...
This is the "science" that gave us acid rain (complete bullshit), nuclear winter (complete bullshit), the greenhouse effect (complete bullshit) and the doom-shouters that stated with all confidence that when Saddam Hussein torched the Kuwaiti oil fields that the clouds would darken the skies world-wide "Look- we have graphs and simulations to prove it!" (even more complete bullshit).

What this all it boils down to is in the last sentence...
"We need more continuous observations to fully understand how they work, and to be able to better predict sea-level rise in the future," says Straneo.
Which translated from Glowbull Warmening Alarmist Speak means:
"I need my government grant money renewed to I can fuck off in the fjords for another year and not have to worry about getting a real job. At least not until the next round of funding runs out."

All the computer-science propeller-heads need to get out of the Complete Fucking Bullshit Climate Science Labs and go down to the basement where the gamers are writing their newest rendering engines and get into writing computer games...

Look, all I want are sharks with frikkin laser beams on their heads. But, I guess hooded seals will do.

"first time they've seen ANYTHING there"

There is no way to describe it any better than that. So, who is dumber...them for concluding there is a trend based on ONE observation, or anyone who thinks their conclusion has any merit? Seriously, how does this crap get published?
