    What’s happened since 2009?
    We know Greenland wasn’t covered in ice when it was discovered – hence its name!
    It would be interesting to know the current ice coverage compared to pre industrial times.
    More relevant/updated information is needed, rather than cherrypicking dates.
    Thanks
