Without the ice sheet, sea levels are predicted to rise by over 10 feet.
Towards the end of June, Europe experienced a sweltering heatwave that saw the mercury rise to record highs in some areas.
Global warming will lead to a significant increase in the frequency and severity of extreme heat across the contiguous states, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists.
The Greenland ice sheet is the second largest body of ice in the world, after its counterpart in Antarctica.
Attenborough said he was encouraged by the action of young people around the world who are publicly fighting for climate justice.
Scientists have identified genetically inherited gut microbes that regulate how much methane a cow produces.
The "equatorial cold tongue" extends from Peru far into the western Pacific, across around a quarter of the Earth's circumference.
Previously, only a handful of lakes locked beneath the ice had been identified.
If the military were a country, its fuel usage alone would make it the 47th largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, lying between Peru and Portugal.
The timing of the interview came as the Trump administration continues to roll back Obama-era environmental regulations.
The soft drink industry generates vast amounts of waste product. Could some of this be put to good use?
Researchers ran hundreds of simulations for different climate scenarios to see how the ice will respond in the coming centuries.
Declassified film helps scientists show that ice loss has doubled in the last 20 years.
The microscopic life forms live everywhere on Earth, from our digestive systems to the air and the Earth's subsurface.
An international team of scientists is about to embark on a four-year-long study on the Earth's second biggest ocean.

"Climate change does not only affect far away places but also the United States, whose administration has announced withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement," a scientist told "Newsweek."
"We are moving forward to address climate change," EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler said.
As the Earth's climate warms, melting ice sheets are expected to lead to an increase in global sea levels.

John Oliver recruited Nye to help highlight the seriousness of global warming.
At the end of the last glacial era, carbon gases trapped on the seafloor escaped, causing drastic warming that helped end the last ice age. A scientist says climate change could cause this process to repeat.
Making our urban environments greener can help to save species, cool the warming cities and make us happier.
"It is happening faster than anyone predicted," said one of the researchers in a new report.
"Global warming is happening. As a society, we need to understand how species and ecosystems will respond to such change," said study author Lewis Jones.
The impact of climate change is set to rise, especially if global action to halt greenhouse gas emissions stagnates. More vulnerable communities will need to move away from their current homes.
