Check out this article on the trip Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) recently took to Greenland:

WASHINGTON Leading a bipartisan delegation of 10 colleagues to Greenland, Sen. Barbara Boxer said today she saw first-hand the effects of global warming and received a plea from the country’s officials to do something to change it.

“I think everyone who has seen this is changed,” Boxer, D-Calif., said in a telephone interview from Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. “Imagine flying in a helicopter and seeing this massive glacier that’s five miles wide and 500 miles long…following it as it’s crashing into the sea.” The glacier they flew over is the fastest moving one in the world, she said.
