I wish that people would actually take the time to understand the data they read and use to make their psuedo-sciencentific fear mongering youtube videos. While I admit climate change is real and is a. huge problem, I have to call. shananigans on this video. If the ice sheet actually melted like he stating here it would be a huge deal. I guess he just looked at the pictures and jumped to a conclusion, at least I hope he did otherwise he has an IQ of about 70. This is really a depiction of the amount of surface melt, not a completly melted ice sheet. there is a big difference between the two. Try reading the data first before making crazy claims.

Article states: "Ice cores from Summit show that melting events of this type occur about once every 150 years on average. With the last one happening in 1889, this event is right on time," says Lora Koenig, a Goddard glaciologist and a member of the research team analyzing the satellite data. "But if we continue to observe melting events like this in upcoming years, it will be worrisome." Okay, had 3 really hot July days with melt on the surface.  Uh, so.  I guess someone discovered summer, and a warm front.  I don't get how this means anything.

Too many people fear mongering. If you google Greenland Webcams you will see beautifull ice all around.

I don't recall the name of a particular glacier in Greenland, but it is moving toward the sea at a rate of 140 feet "per day". I have seen video of this and it's crazy Water has been getting under the base, which helps it move along with a lot less resistance. That would be the OLD and the NEW ice. It's a scary sight to see this thing moving along pushing huge boulders as though they weren't even there.
