Record Melting in Greenland
Greenland’s ice caps experienced record melting in the year 2010.
What does this mean?
Melting ice in Greenland freshens the seas near the Arctic and contributes to rising sea levels around the world. It is unclear just how much melting ice from Greenland will push sea levels up, largely because the melting is occurring much more quickly than scientists predicted. Current estimates call for an increase of up to 0.6 meters by 2100.
What do you think that we need to do to prevent this from getting worse?
