Greenland Ice Melting Faster Than Previously Thought; Sea Level Rise Could Displace 400M People
For The Real News Network, I spoke this week to Dr. Andrew Shepherd, a professor of earth observation at the University of Leeds, about a new study he has co-authored.
The study concluded that Greenland’s massive ice sheet is melting at a pace far faster than previously estimated. Global sea level rise could displace up to 400 million people by 2100.
As the Pentagon itself has acknowledged, a human displacement of that magnitude is likely to cause immense political instability and violent conflict.
