About our Greenland news

Latest news on Greenland, an island in the Arctic Ocean located between Canada and Iceland. It is the largest island in the world and the least densely populated country. The majority of the population is Inuit. The climate is Arctic, with long, cold winters and short, cool summers. The landscape is mostly uninhabitable, with mountains, glaciers, and tundra.

The Greenland ice sheet is the largest ice sheet outside of Antarctica, and it is melting at an alarming rate. Scientists are concerned that the ice sheet could completely melt within the next few centuries, which would cause a drastic rise in sea level. The ice sheet is already contributing to a rise in sea level of about 0.8 mm per year, and this is expected to increase as the ice sheet continues to melt. The impact of the Greenland ice sheet melt on sea level is significant and potentially devastating. If the ice sheet were to completely melt, it would raise sea level by about 7 meters (23 feet). This would inundate coastal areas around the world, including many major cities. The impact of such a rise in sea level would be catastrophic.
