I read those opinion pieces. We subscribe to the WSJ. I get a lot of value from their news articles, but their commentary is just that. Did you actually read the article I linked to? It was based on a peer-reviewed paper in Nature Climate Change. I find Koonin's commentary often thought-provoking, but in the case of Greenland his piece isn't persuasive.Timbeeeeeer!
I'll pretend to be the devil's advocate, with some fresher data from the prince(?) of climate-deniers: The WallStreetJournal.
(Both are the headlines of the WSJ articles and maybe found w/o subscription)
"Greenland’s Melting Ice Is No Cause for Climate-Change Panic" (2022/02/17)
"Don’t Believe the Hype About Antarctica’s Melting Glaciers" (2022/09/17)
I am old enough, however, to remember when some scientists in the 1970s were worried we might have a new ice age. They look pretty silly now, but that wasn't a pervasive theory, though the popular press was fascinated by it.
