Greenland icecap shrinking and thickening

I am not sure that this article tells us anything other than:

1. We are not sure if the Greenland icecap is growing or shrinking given that it's area is decreasing (unmeasurably) and it's depth is increasing.

2. "We" think, but aren't apparently really sure, that the ocean level is probably increasing "slightly" (whatever that means).

3. There are wackos at the UN who have extrapolated this to a sea level rise of over a meter in the next 95 years (sounds all too familiar to the warnings that Miami would be under water by 2000 that were put out 20 years ago).

Tammy's take is funny.
