    It's too bad we don't have a large-scale source of reliable, CO2 free energy cough-nuclear-cough eh?

    The ice has been melting for the past 14,000 years. Why is this news?

    Im sorry but it seems terribly ignorant to think you can change earths natural evolution.

    There is massive new ice buildup at the top forcing movement down..Calving is not a new development but alarmist are sure going overboard for natural variation...

    Ancient Greenland was much warmer than previously thought: New knowledge helps researchers understand how Greenland's ice sheet responds to warming

    Why yes, marketing ploy by Eric the Red. So why did you not know that?

    This information could help researchers better gauge Greenland's sensitivity to warming, by testing and improving models of climate and ice sheet behavior. Those models could then improve predictions of how Greenland's ice sheet, which covers 80 percent of the Arctic country and holds enough ice to equal 20 feet of global sea level, might respond to human-made global warming.

    "Northwest Greenland might feel really remote, but what happens to that ice sheet is going to matter to everyone in New York City, Miami and every coastal city around the world," said Yarrow Axford, the study's senior author and an associate professor of Earth and planetary sciences at Northwestern. "One of the big uncertainties in climate science remains how fast the Earth changes when it gets warmer. Geology gives us an opportunity to see what happened when the Earth was warmer than today."

    Published June 4 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the study included contributions from collaborators at Dartmouth College.
