I think the age for Greenland also needs a recount. :)
The last I heard the soil under the sheet has been dated to ~2.7 mn y and the sheet is characterised as "having survived the coming and going of recent ice ages".
Pollen from the soil indicates Greenland was a tundra-like landscape from 100 ky to 1000 ky before the ice covered it.
Of course, I haven't checked these conclusions with creationist websites, so they are provisional. ;)
