Buried And Abandoned US Nuclear Military Base Being Uncovered As Ice Melts – Greenland Disaster Imminent?

During the Cold War, the US military had bases, hidden or otherwise, all over the planet. After the fall of the Soviet Union many of these bunkers became redundant. Today, problems are arising when deciding what to do about the material that was left behind in the abandoned structures.

In Greenland, toxic and radioactive waste was callously buried under the snow and ice in expectation that continuing snowfall and freezing temperatures would seal it forever. But with the rise in global temperatures and melting ice, this contamination is in danger of being exposed to the outside elements, which means pollution on a very dangerous scale.

The following presentation takes us on a voyage into Greenland and looks at the problems as they emerge.
