In the press release, NASA states:
"If the trends we're seeing continue and climate warming continues as predicted, the polar ice sheets could change dramatically. The Greenland ice sheet could be facing an irreversible decline by the end of the century."

Not to be alarmist, but we're in deep trouble in the next century.
It is beyond time for us all to take out heads out of the sand and do something positive to help mitigate the effects of this unavoidable catastrophe. At least in your own personal lives, please do something to reduce your reliance on fossil fuels, purchase fluorescent lights for your home (you can find them for about $1 each), bicycle to work, start a garden, vote Democrat.
