dtjohnson writes: The new "Times Atlas of the World" claims in publicity for its newest edition that global warming has turned 15 percent of Greenland's former ice-covered land "green and ice-free." Now, however, scientists from the Scott Polar Research Institute say those figures, based on data from the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) are wrong. "Recent satellite images of Greenland make it clear that there are in fact still numerous glaciers and permanent ice cover where the new Times Atlas shows ice-free conditions and the emergence of new lands," they say in a letter that has been sent to the Times. Others have pointed out that if 15 percent of Greenland ice cover had been lost, then sea levels would have risen by 1 meter...which has not happened. Perhaps yet another climategate is brewing.
