Hamilton in New York Times Glacier Story

Comments from Gordon Hamilton, a professor in UMaine’s Climate Change Institute, are included in a front-page Sunday New York Times story detailing scientific research related to changes in Greenland’s glaciers.  The story says that Hamilton and others are working “to answer one of the most urgent – and most widely debated – questions facing humanity: How fast is the world’s ice going to melt?”  Hamilton calls the changes “alarming,” telling the Times that scientists are seeing “ice sheets changing literally overnight.” Hamilton is also featured in an online slide show that accompanies the story.
