I apologize for misunderstanding, I guess...

I covered WHY that area is important to focus on, but since you seem to have missed it, I'll try again.

The melting of the arctic sea ice, in addition to being an indicator, will increase temperatures in the arctic. As THAT happens, it means that GREENLAND will melt faster, because of the warmer temperatures that result from that "one area".
