Description
The links between Greenland and global climate are commonly popularized. Pictures of melting coastal glaciers are used by environmentalists to illustrate climate change and raise concerns about future sea level risks. Climate skeptics commonly argue that south Greenland was much warmer at the time of Viking agricultural settlements than today. However, within the scientific state of the art, there has been no detection and attribution study specific for Greenland and the relative contributions of natural climate variability versus anthropogenic factors on Greenland current climate change remain uncertain. _x000D_ The life of the Greenlanders, living on the coast...
