Greenland’s Melt Will Be Unstoppable by 2040, Berlingske Says

The melting of Greenland’s iceberg’s will be irreversible by 2040 at the latest, Berlingske Tidende said, citing a report based on data compiled by Denmark’s Meteorological Institute.

The report’s findings are “alarming” and show that the “melt can go at a much faster pace than one would normally imagine,” said Jens Hesselbjerg Christensen, one of the report’s authors, in an interview with the Copenhagen-based newspaper.

The melt will prevent Greenland’s icebergs from reforming over a period that may stretch thousands of years into the future, Berlingske said, citing the report.
