Scientists have long known that higher air temperatures are contributing to the surface melting on Greenland's ice sheet.
But a new study has found another threat that has begun attacking the ice from below: Warm ocean water moving underneath the vast glaciers is causing them to melt even more quickly......
This ice sheet holds enough water to raise global sea levels by more than 24 feet.

OMG, we're all going to die. 24 feet????? Get real.
What is causing the warm waters, under water volcanic action? Can I buy a vowel?
Kinda like duh....We’ve known that for years.
Just yesterday I read that some scientists said we could be headed toward a new ice age.
Math is never part of the global warming analysis. I guess they figured the glacier is 48 feet tall, so if it all melts the oceans will rise by at least half that amount.
Get hold of me when NYC disappears then i’ll have something to get excited about (I live in NYS).
If the ocean is able to flow under the ice, the ocean has already risen as much it ever will.
Antarctica’s ice is melting from subglacial volcanoes.
This is completely false. A glass of water with a icecube filles to the brim will see its level decrease because water expands when icing.
CNN needs to stop Earth Flating and watch that other planets are round and warming too because of the Sun. Mars’ own ice is receding.
There’s a reason one is called GREEN LAND and another ICE LAND. CNN would tell you that has nothing to do with how they were discovered.
My goodness.... 24-feet ??
Show me the math.
deBlasio is building a sea wall around NYC.
Dang, I am sure glad it was not grabloids or ass blasters
I'm 40 miles inland and 600 feet above sea level. I'm OK with that.
So the Titanic sank because it hit a glacier?
When you are Chicken Little the sky is always falling.
Im about one mile and 55 feet. OK here, as well. Bring it on!
Same math they’re using in Iowa.
“This ice sheet holds enough water to raise global sea levels by more than 24 feet.”
I call Horse Feces on that claim.
