Greenland at its Warmest in 1,000 Years Due to Climate Changes, says Study

The co-author of a study that rebuilt circumstances by drilling deeply into the ice sheet claimed on Friday that temperatures in some places of Greenland are warmer than they have been in 1,000 years.

Bo Mollesoe Vinther, an associate professor of climate physics at the University of Copenhagen, said: “This confirms the terrible news that we already know, sadly. (It is) evident that we need to get this warming under control in order to stop the melting of the Greenlandic ice sheet.

Scientists were able to reconstruct temperatures from the north and central Greenland from the year 1000 AD to 2011 by digging below the ice sheet to obtain samples of snow and ice from hundreds of years ago.
