Researchers say melting glaciers are revealing land that has not been seen in tens of thousands of years.

Scientists studied dozens of plants from the edges of melting ice caps on Canada’s Baffin Islands.
Using radio-carbon dating, they discovered that most of the plants had been under the ice for at least 40-thousand years.
The discovery also has researchers again warning about the dangers of climate change.
They say the findings suggest that the arctic region is seeing its warmest century in at least 115-thousand years.
