"Renaissance Thinking About the Issues of Our Day"
NASA scientists were left stunned after analyzing data showing that Greenland's ice sheet is melting at an unprecedented rate. Three independent satellites confirmed that over four days, the amount of ice melting in Greenland jumped from 40% to 97% - showed by this chart - the image on the left is from july 8 and the image on right is from July 12th. As one NASA scientist wrote in a press release, "This was so extraordinary that at first I questioned the result: Was this real or was it due to a data error?" Unfortunately, it's very much real - and in 30 years of observations, never has this much ice melted away from Greenland so fast. Of course - oil industry funded scientists will tell us everything is just fine - and it's just a really hot summer. Meanwhile, they're the ones most likely looking for mountaintop real estate - away from soon-to-be rising oceans.
