Under all future emissions pathways, including Low emissions pathways, the Greenland Ice Sheet disappears entirely (ranging from between 1 to 6 thousand years to waste away). That corresponds to 7.3 meters (24 feet) of eventual sea level rise, just from the Greenland Ice Sheet.

The Greenland Ice Sheet is thickest in the middle, where most of the snowfall is deposited. The ice streams shown are near the edges of the ice sheet, where the ice is thinnest and still thinning. Losses in the margins are much greater than snowfall gains in the interior.

Greenland is not only losing ice, but its coastline is changing. The island's freshwater rivers, which carry nutrients into the ocean, are rerouting beneath the glaciers. This change could affect the local environment and the people who depend on it.

That is for the GISP2 Summit, is not global and the last data point is from 1855. This extends that to 2017.

Did you know tiny floating particles in the air you breathe - created by traffic, power generation, agriculture & fires - can cause serious health issues? MAIA will help health professionals understand how particulate air pollution affects our bodies.

UPDATE: September 2020 was the warmest September globally since modern record-keeping began in 1880, measuring at 1.0 °C (1.8 °F) above the 1951-1980 baseline average. The eight most recent Septembers have also been the warmest.

Greenland could look very different by the year 2300. A new simulation shows how the island might look under three emissions scenarios for the 21st century, based on how much we cut greenhouse gas emissions:

A satellite with state-of-the-art sensors is being prepped for launch from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base. Its mission: measuring Earth’s rising seas with pinpoint precision. What makes it work? Lasers. Lots of lasers.

As the climate warms, the # of storms that rapidly strengthen just before landfall is likely to ⬆️, threatening communities in their paths. A study finds that ocean heat waves may fuel this rapid intensification, helping us better forecast these events.

That human activities (the human burning of fossil fuels) have warmed the globe & are impacting the Earth’s climate is a fact, based on the weight of over a century of scientific evidence forming the structural backbone of the science & technology underpinning our civilization.
