Eric Rignot quoted in PBS Frontline piece about Greenlandic ice melts and the OMG Project

For centuries, the enormous ice sheet covering the Arctic island of Greenland has been relatively stable.

So when NASA scientists realized that Greenland’s glaciers had begun melting much faster than expected, they were puzzled — and alarmed: If all of Greenland’s ice sheet were to melt, it’s estimated that sea level around the world would rise by about 20 feet, putting coastal cities from Miami to Mumbai at risk of catastrophic flooding.

Sir David Attenborough’s long career as a presenter of BBC natural-history programmes first began in 1953 with a three-part series called “Animal Patterns”.

In the seven decades since, he has fronted dozens of iconic series filmed and broadcast around the planet, helping to earn him the status as one of the world’s most respected and influential science communicators.
