Climate change: Rain melting Greenland ice sheet 'even in winter'
#2
In regards to this troubling incident, I remember watching a planet documentary with one episode focused on the polar ice caps and Greenland. Everything that I can remember from that one hour episode is covered in this article and in your discussion. It's quite alarming to think how quickly the ice and snow from the coldest regions of Earth are melting, and as stated above and in the article, since this rain that presumably occurs from condensation of water vapor following the evaporation of the melting ice or from the "warm air coming up from the South", transforms the ice surface to expose darker portions resulting in more absorption of light and heat, the melting is increasing exponentially so therefore I think that we better consider the ramifications of our industries before it's too late and millions of people and animals near coastal areas drown from the rising sea levels as a result of the melting ice which we can prevent.
