The ice on Greenland melts. It gives no reason to give up

This week , several media a new research paper that is likely to cause anxiety. The inland ice on Greenland, which was formed for 250 000 years ago and contains 10 per cent of the world's fresh water, is going to melt. It applies, according to the article, regardless of whether we limit CO₂ emissions, and follow the aspirations of Parisavtalen. The reason should be that we have miscalculated how sensibel Grønlandsisen is for a temperature increase. The threshold for when it decreases more than it increases, is lower than you thought.

critical the point is most likely of 1.6 degrees, and the average temperature has already increased by 1.1 degrees - in addition to that the temperature rises more in the Arctic. Melt all the ice on Greenland, the sea will rise by 7.2 metres. It happens in this case, not in a few hundred years, but it is, nevertheless, inconceivable that large parts of countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands and Denmark will be under the water. Florida, large parts of China and Japan, and the Philippines will disappear in the sea. Within this century the sea will rise by one meter, "probably a part more", as one of the researchers behind the article, says to Danmarks Radio.

such news provides no reason to give up or think that little harness. The only thing responsible, for our own and our posterity's sake, is to do two things: Get up to speed on the utslippskuttene, and get up to speed on the klimatilpasningen. We enter a world that changes because of climate change. When conditions become difficult, we must do as it says in the rules of the road: We have to slow the pace, and we must adapt ourselves to the conditions. Norway has already undertaken the responsibility for the klimakutt through international agreements, and we have committed to tighten further. In september next year we need to meet at the united nations in New York city with concrete plans. We have bad time, and Erna Solberg said himself at his press conference on Thursday that the government next year need to reinforce the climate policy. Then, it is encouraging to see that efforts are being made well and thoroughly with this in many areas of Norwegian society.

This week got the Cicero center for international climate aggregates on Norway's biggest social klimaforskningsprosjekt ever. How should the cuts be, and how do we do it most effectively. A large, interdisciplinary work, including in agriculture, forestry, transport, industry, interaction between different measures in different countries. As programstyreleder and hydrolog Hege Hisdal says in the press release from the Research council, should the project contribute to "a more enlightened public debate in the years to come, where the politicians and interesseorganisasjonene get concentrate to disagree about politics, not about assumptions and facts".

congratulations to Cicero and partners, and wish them all the best of luck with the important work.
