A boat skims through the melting ice in the Ilulissat fjord on August 28, 2008, on the western coast of Greenland. Flying low over the vast, white expanse of Greenland’s Ilulissat glacier, one of the biggest and most active in the world, the effects of global warming in the Arctic are painfully visible as the ice melts at an alarming rate. The glacier is the most active in the northern hemisphere, producing 10 percent of Greenland’s icebergs, or some 20 million tonnes of ice per day. But the glacier is in bad shape, experts warn.
