In recent years, barely a week has passed without a report appearing on the precarious situation facing Greenland, and by consequence the entire planet. Scientists have confirmed that the rate at which the country is melting has accelerated, with an estimated one trillion tons of ice lost between 2011 and 2014. We've gathered two articles which explain the situation and the likely consequences in considered, detailed and profound terms:
Greenland is Melting Away, an immersive piece of digital journalism, published by The New York Times; and
Greenland is Melting, an in-depth feature by Elizabeth Kolbert, published by The New Yorker.
