Greenland is Melting
Correspondent: Shane Smith
Greenland recorded its highest temperatures ever in 2013. Nothing to worry about some say; even though the equivalent of three Chesapeake Bays worth of water is melted off the island every year, it will be 4,000 years before the ice sheet melts, raises sea levels, and plunges the rest of the world into chaos. But, there is a chance this Arctic Doom will come in decades, not four millennia. VICE embarks on an expedition to Greenland with climate scientist Jason Box to investigate how newly discovered waterfalls pouring down on the ice sheet could be a catalyst for doom.
