"Over the last 10 years, it's quite simple; warming over Greenland has caused the melting to increase, and that's set off this albedo feedback process," he told BBC News.




Grace's twin satellites map gravity at the Earth's surface in unprecedented detail; and it is now possible to tease out from the data that most of the mass is being lost in the southeast, southwest and northwest at low elevations where the air will generally be warmer than at high altitudes.


While I don't believe this is due to man or even a calamity I post this in the interest of being fair and showing both sides of the arguement

Thanks for this. The whole solar system is warming up. So all the planets are warming up, and the ice melting in Greenland is a very good example.
There are other mysteries as well. I know this image has been posted in the past, but nobody ever had an explanation about it.

That's in the middle of Greenland and frankly, i am baffled by this picture...

Google Earth : 70¤ 21' 55.83" N 39¤ 51' 50.23" W
The visible part of the object is 53 miles long by 12 miles...
Amazing if you ask me!

You dont seriously think there is some gigantic object there, and noone has bothered to say anything?

It's an artifact from the method used to compile the images on Google Earth. Ever see what happens to white surfaces when you hit them with acutely angled sunlight? They reflect red-orange light. This is a strip taken at a different time of day, that's all.

The pictures are taken at different times of the year, under different conditions. In some areas, you can see chunks of different weather. All these pictures are compiled to form one big complete map, based on the coordinates given with the original satellite data.

What?? That is a pretty huge object, Can you see it in other global picture sites?

Thanks for the explanation. I really did not have a clue, but you've shed some light into my questions.
