Greenland losing ice "seven times faster"

Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"Greenland's ice is melting seven times faster than it was in the 1990s, and at much greater speeds than current predictions, according to a new study.

"It came as another report warned that melting Arctic permafrost could be causing carbon stores to be released into the atmosphere, adding to warming.

"The increase in Greenland ice melt could lead to global sea level rises of 7cm above current estimates by 2100, leaving 40 million more people at risk of flooding."
