3 weeks Sea level: Greenland ice loss worst in 12,000 years Inquirer
      PARIS, France - Ice loss from Greenland's massive ice sheet will cause sea levels to rise more during the 21st century than they have during any 100-year period in the last 12,000 years, even if global warming is held in check, scientists said Wednesday. The study -- based on ice core data and models and published in the journal Nature -- is the first to painstakingly reconstruct Greenland's ice loss record over the entire course of the Holocene, the geological epoch that has allowed civilisation to flourish. It found that if greenhouse gas emissions continue unabated, the ... more
