Caption: Greenland ice sheet along the western edge of the West Greenland. The ice sheet is up to 250,000 years old and up to 3200 meters thick. Some people believe that global warming is currently leading to rapid melt of the ice sheet which if it were to melt entirely would raise global sea levels by 9 meters swamping many major coastal cities of the world and displacing hundreds of millions of people.
