In mid-August, a potent heat wave melted large swathes of the Greenland ice sheet, which is three times the size of Texas. It's a vivid sign of changing times, and climes. In recent decades, Arctic scientists have observed record-breaking melt events in Greenland, which result in water pouring into the sea — and contribute to sea level rise. So far in 2021, the island's melted area (8.2 million square miles) is way above the 1981 to 2010 average-to-date, by some 1 million square miles.



"What’s important to know is that all the big melt years have happened in the last two decades or so,"

Add 'with Chris Eubank' and that's an Alan Partridge programme pitch.
