Greenland’s Melting Ice sheets beyond the point of recovery

According to scientists from Ohio State University, the ice sheets are likely to disappear even if the world’s emission is cut to zero.

As per their research, Arctic glaciers are getting warmer at twice rate as compared to the rest of the world for over 30 years. The complete meltdown of these Arctic glaciers will lead to the rise in sea level by approximately 6 meters.

This is an alarming situation however, researchers believe that cutting down emissions will slow down the rate of ice loss and delay the damage.
