Climate Minute: Cold War era scientific study in Greenland leads to discovery of plant fossils
The United States is conducting a top-secret mission in Greenland to hide 600 missiles under Greenland’s ice sheet. They call it Project Iceworm, and to conceal it, the Army claims to simply be conducting an Arctic scientific study.

Scientists estimate that the ice sheet could contain up to 23 feet of sea water rise in ice melt.
