What will happen if Greenland melts?

    If the glaciers in Greenland are all lost to melting, we can expect the water to rise in Eastern Canada and the US by about 12 to 20 inches.
    “The oceans will not rise uniformly as the world warms. Ocean dynamics will push water in certain directions, so some locations will experience sea level rise that is larger than the global average,” NCAR scientist Gerald Meehl, co-author of the paper, said in a statement.

    It will devastate many species and forever change the coastlines worldwide.  Polar bears, musk ox, terns, and eiders are only a few of the species that will suffer, if not die out on the island, if Greenland were to melt.  It would also mean that the pollution crisis was still escalating and global warming was endangering mid-latitude ecosystems to the extreme.
