Greenland Lost 2 Gigatons of Ice in 1 Day


Greenland lost two gigatons of ice on Thursday in just one day.


Over 40 percent of Greenland experienced melting.


Such melting in one day is highly unusual for Greenland.


A similar spike occurred in June of 2012.


2019 could set records for the most ice lost.


The extreme ice melt is due to a ridge of high pressure that is bringing warm temperatures.
