[See NewsBusters for more.] All throughout Monday, CNN featured several top 10 year in reviews to recap the year's biggest stories. Climate correspondent Bill Weir was responsible for the climate edition and during both the 2 AM and 3 PM Eastern hours, he warned that the world is "close to a point of no return" when it comes to the "code red for humanity" of "planet-cooking pollution."

Weir kicked off his top 10 in Greenland, declaring that scientists, "believe this is the birthplace of the iceberg that sank the Titanic. But now scientists are really worried this place could help sink Miami and Boston and Bangkok and Shanghai because just this part of Greenland has enough ice that if it all melts, will raise sea levels by two feet."
