"Melting of the Greenland ice sheet has hit a rate unmatched in the last
12,000 years and is accelerating, scientists have confirmed.
Research published in Nature
today predicts that the Greenland ice
sheet will be melting by as much as six times its current rate by the
end of the century if we don't get emissions down.
On the flipside, if we can achieve the best-case emissions reduction
scenario forecast by the IPCC we can limit its increasing melt rate to
around 40 per cent greater than its present rate."
