Greenland's Melting: Creating A Different Climate than Earth Has Ever Seen | Climate change challenges | Scoop.it

July 28, 2013 Rolling Stone

Greenland's ice sheets are melting faster than anyone predicted. Why  glaciologist Jason Box's radical theory may not be so radical after all...

The expedition, called the Dark Snow Project, is the first crowd-sourced scientific research trip to Greenland. “The old ways of doing things aren’t working,” Box tells me one evening. “I want to pursue big ideas, but I also want to communicate them in ways that the public understands. Scientists need to do everything they can to wake people up. It is our job, our moral responsibility.”http://www.rollingstone.com/greenland-melting?stop_mobi=yes
