Scientists warn that plants are beginning to replace ice in Greenland

Since 1970 the air of Greenland it has warmed twice the world average. This has caused the ice to begin to melt and be replaced by plants and, what is worse, the heating process -and its consequences- accelerate rapidly.

In fact, According to a study published this Tuesday in Scientific Reports, it is most likely that even more extreme temperatures will be recorded in the future.

The research, carried out by scientists from the Leeds Universityin Englandhas analyzed the changes in Greenland from 1980 to 2010 and has confirmed that the warming of the air is causing the ice to retreat which, in turn, has an impact on the temperature of the Earth's surface, greenhouse gas emissions and the landscape.

Greenland, part of the Arctic region, is the largest island in the world, cIt has an area of ​​approximately 1.3 million square miles, most of which is covered in ice and glaciers, and is home to 57,000 people..
