Greenland just lost a massive amount of ice

Greenland lost a massive amount of ice on July 28

with enough melting to cover the entire state of Florida

in two inches of water, scientists say

Some 22 gigatonnes of ice melted

making it the third-biggest ice loss for Greenland in a single day since 1950

The Arctic is warming faster than the rest of the planet

Scientists estimate that melting from Greenland's ice sheet

has caused around 25% of global sea level rise seen over the last few decades
