Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, Michael Bloomberg and other billionaires are on a mission to find treasures in Greenland as the ice shelf melt. The billionaires are funding a massive treasure hunt in anticipation of finding important minerals and other treasures.
Their expedition capitalizes on the ongoing climate change crisis amidst the massive melting. A recent study on the status of Greenland’s ice reserves found that the ice shelves were melting at a rate faster than in the last 12 millennia. Those who are hunting for treasures in the region believe that the ice sheets might have been holding and sitting on some valuable minerals.
The billionaires are in pursuit of a group of critical minerals that are capable of powering the green energy transition. They are already funding researchers for the analysis of soils below the surface of the hills and valleys on Greenland’s Disko Island and Nuussuaq Peninsula.
