Whenever there is something that has been happening today as far as environmental issues like the latest from the Greenland ice melting is concerned, all directions are thrown the way of the global warming issue that seems be growing seriously through the years. The climate changes have been confirmed to be the problem based on records that were compiled by the scientists coming from the UK, Belgium, Denmark and the United States.
It is practically a done deal when it comes to supporting conclusions. Global warming is a reality and close to everything that concerns the environment has been linked to it.
‘Our statistical analysis suggests that southern Greenland climate is currently responsive to general Northern Hemisphere warming,’ the scientists conclude. ‘As a consequence, the GrIS [Greenland ice sheet] is likely to be highly susceptible to ongoing global warming, in which Greenland temperatures are predicted to increase ~1° – 8°C by 2100.’
‘Our work shows that global warming is beginning to take its toll on the Greenland ice sheet which, as a relict feature of the last Ice Age, has already been living on borrowed time and seems now to be in inexorable decline,’ commented Dr Edward Hanna of the University of Sheffield, who led the research. ‘The question is can we reduce greenhouse gas emissions in time to make enough of a difference to curb this decay?’
