  1. Really appreciate this graphic.

    Question re Greenland: do you mean to have written that 97% experienced melting as opposed to “disappeared”? I don’t think that 97% of Greenland’s surface ice went away this past year.

  2. Thanks for your comment. I agree – “disappeared” is not the best choice of wording. 97% of the ‘surface ice’ on Greenland melted, or thawed in July. This is not to say that 97% of the ice on Greenland melted (New York would be under water!), but this flash melting represented a surface thaw unprecedented in the satellite era. I’ve updated the infographic to reflect your feedback.
