Greenland is the largest island on Earth, but has a population of less than 60,000. Global warming has made it possible for soil that was once barren to produce crops. In a country where a lettuce can cost £4+, this is of obvious benefit. Trees are beginning to thrive where they would once have been stunted. Greenland’s mining industry is benefitting as the receding ice cap makes underground riches more accessible, but the melt is bad news for the country’s seal-hunters, who depend on a solid sheet of ice to transport them and their dogs to the northern hunting grounds.
