Children playing on an iceberg at a beach in Nuuk, Greenland's capital, last week. Nuuk was "sizzling" last Thursday at 24 deg C, the warmest temperature recorded in the Arctic country in June. The city sits on Greenland's south-west coast, where the country's warmest weather typically occurs. The temperatures and early ice melt in Greenland are consistent with a pattern of exceptional warmth in the Arctic.
