That day it was warmer in Nuuk, Greenland than it was in New York City at 71 degrees Fahrenheit or 21.6 degrees Celsius.
The record warmth in Greenland has caused the ice-melt season to fast-forward, and global warming is poised to unearth what wasonce buried.
In 1967, the US decommissioned a military base called â€œCamp Century,â€ constructed underneath the Greenland Ice Sheet, but left the rest of the hazardous waste there, assumed would be buried forever beneath an unending deepening snow cover.
Studies showed given the steady advance of the melt zone in Greenland, that the melting ice sheet could begin spreading the hazardous waste across the surface of the ice sheet and into the ocean in as little as 75 years from now or before the end of the century.
According to the Geophysical Research Letters, the most significant threat to the Arctic environment from theÂ buried waste are polychlorinated biphenyls or PCB which do not break down naturally in the environment but can build up in plants and animals potentially causing cancer in humans.
As ice melts and ecosystems change in reaction to the warming climate, the world is confronted with disasters and unexpected pollution predicaments around the globe.
Could the US figure out how to manage the waste problem at Camp Century?
