Greenland calls on Denmark to clean up toxic waste buried in melting ice sheet

October 18, 2016

Greenland officials are calling on Denmark to address the toxic clean up mess buried beneath ice sheets at Camp Century, citing a study co-authored by Brown scientist Jeff Colgan. The study indicated that current global warming trends will eventually melt away the ice sheets that covered millions of litters of toxic waste, but the pollution will likely be buried for several more decades, Colgan told Mashable.
