Plant Discover in buried deep inside Greenland ice sheet: In Greenland, a thing buried in snow has been found millions of years ago. Scientists are surprised to see this. About 55 years ago, a pit was dug to hide the atomic bomb. This ‘treasure’ has been found in this pit. Scientists have indicated from this that there used to be greenery in Greenland covered with snow. But at the same time, scientists have also worried about the great disaster in the world, because from this fossil, they can find out how long it takes to melt the snow of Greenland.
Scientists have found fossilized plants that have been transformed into fossils about 1.6 kilometers of snow in Greenland. They also have twigs and leaves. Scientists believe that this discovery indicates that crores of years ago there was no snow but greenery. There used to be trees and plants here. This discovery has also added to the concern because it can reveal how much time is left for the snow to melt here.
US military pit dug to hide atomic bomb
A top secret mission was started in the year 1960 during the Cold War. Under this, Greenland had plans to hide atomic bombs under the ice to compete with the Soviet Union. For this, the US Army also dug pits here. But in 1966 the scheme was canceled. In 1966, a tube was taken out of the ground by the US Army in one such pit. This fossil has been found in this tube.
Scientists were shocked
Scientists are surprised to see this millions of years old fossil. Scientist Andrew Christ of the University of Vermont has studied this fossil closely. He found that the plant usually needed soil and stones to grow, but on the contrary it was growing in the tube. They have expressed apprehension that this discovery gives an idea that more climate change is taking place and temperature is increasing than we thought.
Many cities will be drowned
Scientists have warned that if the temperature rises and the ice melts rapidly, the sea level will rise. Due to this, many cities will be submerged in water. Many coastal cities such as New York, Miami and Dhaka in Bangladesh are under threat. There is an estimate that if the Greenland ice melts, the sea level will increase by up to 20 feet.
