Greenland is turning green for the first time since the Middle Ages. Why it matters

New research suggests Greenland's ice sheet is melting rapidly due to global warming. 

Portions of Greenland are experiencing vegetation growth for the first time in nearly 1,000 years. 

Study co-author Jonathan Carrivick notes the transformation from snow and ice to shrubbery, rock, and wetlands. 

Approximately 11,000 square miles of Greenland's ice sheet and glaciers have melted in the past three decades. 

This accounts for about 1.6% of Greenland's total ice and glacier cover. 

Warmer temperatures are cited as a key factor driving these land cover changes. 

Vikings' historical records indicate Greenland was greener during the Medieval Warm Period.
