Greenland’s ice melting seven times faster than in 1990s

Ice in Greenland is melting seven times faster than it was in the 1990’s. Satellite observations over a period of 26 years have prompted the scientists to arrive at the conclusion. The scale and speed of ice loss is much higher than was predicted by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. That means sea level rises are likely to reach 67cm by 2100, about 7cm more than earlier predicted.

"But scientists warn that no matter what steps we take to limit global warming now, the slow process of melting ice will continue for decades to come." So this isn't a matter of smashing the patriarchy, but rather forcing it to come up with a solution.
