Uunartoq Qeqertaq Island, Greenlandic for "Warming Island", is an isle off the east central coast of Greenland. It is located 550 kilometres (342 mi) north of the Arctic Circle. Uunartoq Qeqertaq Island became recognised as an island by US explorer Dennis Schmitt in September 2005. Even in 2002, when ice shelves began retreating fastly in this area, it was attached to mainland of Liverpool Land by glacial ice so that by 2005 Uunartoq Qeqertaq was no longer attached to mainland. Members of scientific community believe the newly discovered isle is a direct result of global warming. Uunartoq Qeqertaq Island has three big peninsulas, and this way resembles the letter "W".
The prominent global warming skeptic and climatologist Patrick Michaels created a controversy over the Warming Island's history in a post on his website, in which he argued that the isle had been previously uncovered in 1950s towards the end of a brief warm period in Greenland.
