Climate change is eliminating giant chunks of ice from Greenland at such a speed that the melt has already made a significant contribution to sea level rise, according to a new study. With global warming, the island will lose much more, threatening coastal cities around the world.
The last time carbon dioxide levels were this high, Greenland was mostly green, sea levels were up to 20 meters higher and trees grew on Antarctica, according to scientists who warned this week that there is more CO2 in our atmosphere today than in the past three million years.
The fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier in Greenland, Jakobshavn, is losing less ice than expected, and is actually growing thicker rather than shrinking. Scientists believe the unusual activity is due to colder ocean currents caused by a natural climate pattern known as the North Atlantic Oscillation, which makes the northern Atlantic Ocean slowly switch between warm and cold water about once every 20 years.
Greenland's fastest-flowing and fastest-thinning glacier recently threw a real brain bender at scientists, who realized that instead of shrinking, the glacier is actually growing thicker, they reported in a new study.
