Greenland Melts Down as Temperature Hits New High

Greenland's record-breaking heat wave

Greenlanders were shocked and dismayed to learn that their island nation had recorded its highest ever temperature on Monday, reaching a scorching 25°C (77°F). The previous record was 22°C (72°F), set in 2013.

The unprecedented heat wave, which was caused by a combination of global warming, a high-pressure system, and a warm air mass from North America, has melted large portions of the ice sheet that covers most of Greenland. The meltwater has flooded many coastal areas, forcing residents to evacuate or seek higher ground.

The Greenlandic government has declared a state of emergency, and has appealed for international aid and assistance. The government has also urged the people to stay calm and hydrated, and to avoid any unnecessary outdoor activities.

The Greenlandic people, who are used to living in cold and harsh conditions, have expressed their frustration and anger at the situation. Many have blamed the industrialized countries for causing the climate change that has endangered their homeland. Some have even joked that they might have to change their name to Iceland, and vice versa.
