Greenland’s ice is melting at an alarming rate

Experts warn that the Greenland ice sheet is melting at an alarming rate. Recent research shows that Greenland lost more ice last year than any other. This disturbing change could raise sea levels by 2 cm to 10 cm by the end of the century.

A study published in the journal Nature shows that the rate at which the ice sheet is melting today threatens to exceed everything Greenland has experienced in the last 12,000 years. Scientists explain that the melting observed today is mainly due to greenhouse gas emissions. Thousands of years ago it was the result of natural climate change.

How much ice will disappear in Greenland in the future is up to the human race.
