Greenland Mass Balance

All those measurements and balance equations ignore one simple thing. When the ice melts a bit, it gives up things that have been frozen for hundreds of years. When rootstocks of trees are found where none should be, one must ask questions. When traces of human habitation are found deep under the ice, there must have been an ice-free period hundreds of years ago when humans were around. And yes, it’s called Greenland, not Whiteland. We know of birch forests that existed where there are only ice today. Riddle me this.
