The Greenland Ice sheet melt set a record in 2010.

The ice in Greenland melted so much last year that it formed rivers and lakes on top of the many series of glaciers that covers much of this big Arctic island, with waterfalls flowing through cracks and holes

Tedesco of City College of New York, said this past melt season was exceptional, with melting in some areas stretching up to 50 days longer than average,” Tedesco said in a statement. “Melting in 2010 started exceptionally early at the end of April and ended quite late in mid- September.”
Summer 2010 temperatures in Greenland were up to 5.4 degrees F (3 degrees C) above average, and there was reduced snowfall, Tedesco and his co-authors noted in an article in the current edition of Environmental Research Letters. Nuuk, Greenland’s capital, had the warmest spring and summer since records began there in 1873. Average summer temperatures vary widely, but in coastal areas hover around freezing.

"Sea level rise is expected to top 3 feet by 2100, largely due to melting from ice sheets,”
World Wildlife Fund climate specialist Martin Sommerkorn said in a statement. An international assessment of Arctic conditions released in October found warmer air, less sea ice and melting glaciers, and said the region around the North Pole is unlikely to return to its formerly colder conditions any time soon.

The study was sponsored by World Wildlife Fund, NASA and the National Science Foundation.

Thats 88years to go. Or 36"/88 = 0.4 inch rise per year,
from Greenland alone.
