The bipartisan delegation met with Dr. Konrad Steffen, who is the lead scientist at Swiss Camp located on the Jakobshavn Glacier. According to NASA, the Jakobshavn Glacier is the world’s fastest glacier, doubling its speed between 1997 and 2003. The scientists said that the rate of melting can be slowed if the world’s nations reduce the emission of greenhouse gases.
