Greenland’s Disappearing Beauty

Greenland is melting. The enormous island has been almost entirely covered in ice for millennia, but has started an alarmingly fast melt in the last decade. Human-caused climate change is rapidly changing and shrinking the ice caps, as documented by teams of scientists, as well as ample satellite imagery.

Photographer Albert Dros has a stunning collection of photography of Greenland, showcasing the melting and rapidly disappearing glaciers. With two distinctive red-sailed sailboats, Dros and his team explored the beauty of this fragile place, reflecting on its recent popularity with cruise ship tourists, all of which will further speed up the melting. Both beautiful and tragic, we’re lucky to have professionals like Albert Dros to share these moments with us. Via Bored Panda:
