Glacier's findings confirms global warming fears

"Independent scientists have discovered that a Greenland glacier has now become one of the fastest moving glaciers in the world: and say the findings validate fears about recent global warming.

Outlet glaciers like Kangerdlugssuaq transport ice from the heart of the Greenland Ice Sheet to the ocean and discharge icebergs, which contribute to sea level rise. Kangerdlugssuaq Glacier alone transports or “drains” four per cent of the ice from the Greenland Ice Sheet, and so any changes in the speed of these glaciers holds tremendous significance in terms of sea level rise."
