NASA - Satellites see unprecedented Greenland Ice Sheet surface Melt
At some point Greenland will be more Green land than ice.
And then the name will finally make sense.

Anyone who has been working in climatology for the last two decades have been saying for a while that our cities by the sea are in great danger in the 21st century. I forget the statistic, but there is a great percentage of people who live at or below sea level next to the ocean.
What happened with Super Storm and Hurricane Sandy is only the beginning.
Hopefully our policy makers listen to our scientists; and hopefully more of our scientists become founders to help solve some of these problems proactively, rather than reactively. I have no doubt that this is already happening.
