D’Aleo: Greenland had a warm spell in June coinciding with near record summer blocking. But the melt was minor surface melt and very brief and entirely overplayed in the media. The entire ice sheet did not melt as portrayed but a thin layer of slush developed as surface daytime temperatures reached the middle 30s in July.
FACT CHECK: No rise in temperatures the last 15 years even as CO2 has risen 17%.
FACT CHECK: Sea level rises began leveling off the last half of the 19th century and have been flattening even more in recent years. And the promised changes at Tuvalu have been undetected for decades.
