Greenland Lost an Alarming 12 Billion Tons of Ice In Just a Day

Greenland just broke a new world record and it’s not the type of record that we should be happy about. The country just lost over 12 billion tons of ice in just 24 hours. This was caused by the increasing heatwave which hit 22 degrees celsius.

What does this mean for us and why should we care? According to scientists, the melting of Greenland’s ice sheets could increase the sea level and pose a threat to coastal cities around the world.

This serves as a reminder that the state of our planet could worsen if we don’t do something about it.
