Greenland ice sheet melting fastest in 350 years
The Greenland ice sheet is melting faster now than at any point in the last 350 years and shows no sign of slowing down, according to a new academic study released on Wednesday.

The research from the British journal Nature is the first continuous, multi-century analysis of Greenland’s ice sheet. Eighty percent of Greenland is covered in ice, a size roughly 2.5 times the state of Texas, according to Mashable.

"Melting of the Greenland Ice Sheet has gone into overdrive. As a result, Greenland melt is adding to sea level more than any time during the last three and a half centuries, if not thousands of years," Luke Trusel, a glaciologist at Rowan University's School of Earth & Environment and lead author of the study, said in a statement.
