Greenland's ice caps are melting faster than predicted -- and local
farmers couldn't be happier. Thanks to rising temperatures, they can now
grow new crops and raise cattle. "I really like my cattle. They've very
gentle", boasts farmer Sofus Frederiksen. For the first time since the
Vikings, farmers can now raise cattle. Warmer seas are bringing huge
catches of cod and growing seasons are up to a month longer. "A little
bit of extra warmth is good for us", states agricultural consultant
Kenneth Hoegh. "We're growing things we would have hesitated to grow
in the past". But not all farmers are happy. With so little snow,
Stefan Magnusson finds it hard to herd his reindeer. Previously, he used
a snowmobile but now he has to do it by helicopter
