One of the awful effects of man made global warming, of course, is the melting of the Greenland snow cap leading to massive rises in ocean levels, flooding cities like Denver. The picture above shows an early warning radar station in Greenland back in 1967, before the snow melt had really accelerated. The picture below shows the same radar station after 40 years of melting.

Note the massive scale of this structure. The snow in the more recent picture has reached the top of the roof. Much more melting like this and we'll really be in trouble.
