Jan. 7 (Bloomberg) -- The melting of Greenland’s icebergs 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.
