Kim Hoegh-Dam has seen the impact of climate change firsthand.
He’s a fisherman in Greenland and he’s literally observed the ice in the mountains above his hometown of Narsaq melt away.
“When I was a child, I remember where the edge was,” he says. “And now we [have to] walk, not meters now, [but] kilometers, to find the same edge of the ice.’’
Greenland is warming up, and it’s happening fast. Temperatures there have risen 1.5 degrees Celsius, or more than 2.5 degrees Fahrenheit, since the 1950s. That’s roughly double the increase worldwide.
