Study: Sunnier Skies, Not Just Temperature Rise, Driving Greenland Ice Sheet Melting

The skies over Greenland have become sunnier in recent years, and this has been driving the melting of the ice sheet there to a notable degree -- in other words, it's not just rising temperatures that are causing the ice sheet there to melt. This is according to a new study from the University of Bristol Study: Sunnier Skies, Not Just Temperature Rise, Driving Greenland Ice Sheet Melting was originally published on CleanTechnica.
