The Shrinking Ice Of Greenland: Could The New Times Comprehensive Atlas Be A Prophecy?

Greenland Map Controversy - The Times Comprehensive World AtlasHarperCollins, publisher of The Times Comprehensive Atlas, got kicked pretty hard recently for publishing their atlas’s 13th edition with Greenland’s ice coverage reduced by 15%. News about the receding ice of Greenland traveled quickly but it was soon countered by scientist who doubted the accuracy of the new map. HarperCollins at first defended their updated map but then issued a press release apologizing for their error. Personally, I don’t think the accuracy of the map is going to affect my future not-visits to Greenland but I do have one concern – were the cartographers at HarperCollins thinking ahead a couple editions?
