Greenland's Climate Becoming Milder
Is the Arctic climate becoming more temperate? Remarkable new information given by the famous Swedish authority, Professor H.W. Ahlmann in a lecture to the Swedish Geographical Society, suggests that this may be the case.
Professor Ahlmann was speaking on the collated results of his expedition to north-east Greenland, and he stated that the glaciers there shoed clear signs of a change towards a warmer climate. As had been observed in other parts of the Arctic, especially in Spitzbergen, the melting had increased rapidly.
By far the largest number of local glaciers in north-east Greenland had receded very greatly during recent decades, and it would not be exaggerating to say that these glaciers were nearing a catastrophe.
