The Danish Meteorological Institute (DMI) admitted it wrongly reported Greenland’s record summer warmth, in what it called “good news from a climate perspective”…?
The DMI, a key player in monitoring Greenland’s climate, reported a “shocking” early-August temperature of between 2.7C (37F) and 4.7C (40.5F) at the Summit weather station, located some 3,202m above sea level at the center of the Greenland ice sheet.
This news quickly spread to every corner of the left-leaning web, like some nasty EOTW rash. But just a few days later the DMI posted a tweet retracting that record temp, saying that after a “closer look” (whatever that means exactly) it was revealed that the monitoring equipment had been giving “erroneous results”.
“Was there record-level warmth on the inland ice on Friday?” said the institute’s tweet dated Aug 08. “No! A quality check has confirmed out suspicion that the measurement was too high.”
By combining measurements with observations from other weather stations, the DMI has now estimated that the temperature was more like -2C (28F) — quite a difference, and still only a guess.
“You could say that this is good news from a climate perspective,” Herdis Damberg, one of the Institute’s meteorologists told Danish state broadcaster DR. “There are probably a lot of people wiping their foreheads saying that it’s pretty good that it wasn’t four degrees.”
In my opinion, Damberg is an idiot — an erroneous reading like this is terrible news from a climate perspective. The damage was done almost instantly when hundreds of MSM outlets leaped to publish the bad news without even the sniff of a fact-check. The AGW train must keep on chugging — the mere fact that the DMI reported record-warmth in Greenland –true or otherwise– was no-doubt seen as a gift-from-heaven to all those propagating the climate scare.'
