At Greenland Summit Camp, a research outpost in the island’s (usually) frozen ice shelf, it rained for the first time in recorded history.
If you’re wondering why it matters that it rained in a remote Arctic landscape, consider the following: Greenland’s melting ice, according to Earther, could raise sea levels by an entire foot by 2100. If that happens, entire coastal cities and communities will be destroyed, and we will have to say goodbye to almost all of Florida, much of coastal California, and countless other places around the world.
