What are the impacting effects to the country and other areas around it?

Iceland & Effects of Climate Change

Shannon Skeffington

Greenland is currently losing around 234 billion ton of ice per year. That's enough ice to fill up the Empire State Building in New York about 6,324 times. Studies currently show that Greenland contributes to a rise in sea levels by 0.5 mm/year. https://scied.ucar.edu/learning-zone/climate-change-impacts/greenlands-ice-melting

In 2020, the Prime Minister of Iceland released a comprehensive document containing examples and effects of Global Warming on the country.

Climate Crisis

  • Dimishing of glaciers in Iceland will change the geography of river beds
    • Causing damage to bridges and roads
  • A warmer climate will increase the population of invasive species
    • This will lead to an increase in infectious diseases & allergens

  • There is a very narrow window to save Greenland's Ice Sheet
  • Scientists have conducted two tests on how to go about saving the ice-covered country
  • If the entire country of Greenland melted, sea levels would rise by almost 24 feet

Similar to Iceland, Greenland is also undergoing changes due to climate change. According to NPR, Greenland is responsible for the 20% rise in sea levels due to warming of global temperatures. Currently, Greenland's ice sheet is about 2 miles thick and has been known to be resilient in the past. However, the problem is that even if Earth's temperature were to cool overnight, the icy tundra wouldn't magically stop melting. It would take time for it to begin to freeze once again.

How climate change effects it:

Greenland & Climate Change

80% of Greenland is covered in ice sheets, but in the past 20 years it has now melted seven times faster than it did in the 90's. This melting has caused immense changes in animal and human communities in the Arctic Circle.
