I note he has quietly updated 0-3200m albedo graf at meltfactor.org/blog
No good news, Greenland melts apace.

Arctic ice is healthy for children and other living things because "we cannot negotiate with the melting point of ice"

Quote
"As the Arctic warms, forests are burning at a rate that is unprecedented in the last 10,000 years, separate studies show"

"More than 3.3 million hectares burned in Canada’s Northwest Territories this year, nearly nine times the long-term average"

"This year, much of the smoke and soot produced by these wildfires drifted over to Greenland, Dr Box said."

The linked article indicates that the reflectivity of the Greenland Ice Sheet in August hit a new low in 2014 (see attached image):
