How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

49346 ratings | 15292045 views
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

Meanwhile in the North Sea, all oil drill platforms haven't been jacked up more, nor is the sea water higher in any port in the Netherlands. We suffered this year more the low water levels in the main rivers.

you also have to take in all the water reservoirs suchas dams, waterfalls, or all the piping for the by passing of water. All I thought about is all the over flooding of the massive amounts of water that our water systems are notbprepared for. So, basically places like the hoover dam or niagara falls would over flood, causing distruction & caos everywhere. So basically you don't want to be around anywhere with water lol

Looks like most affected country is China loosing most of its productive land
You missed Central America....I wanted to know if all the melted ice would destroy my awful country

Why don't we recut/drudge/enlarge, from side-ditches, brooks, creeks, rivers, ponds, lakes, etc? Cut down on flooding and reclaim some very rich soil. Billions are being spent on "oceans rising". There are probably billions of gallons of water that could be stored in deeper inland water ways. Multiply that over all the land of the world. The land excavated could be used to shore up the coastal areas. Also doesn't erosion of the land add more silt to the oceans? Plus the displacement of water from all the waste/wrecks in the ocean? Volcanic activity spewing rock into the oceans? Dubai built whole islands in the Arabian Sea's Gulfs. Wouldn't it all factor into the oceans rising not just glaciers melting?
Great journalism. Not even able to point one Canadian city, while the St. Laurence river is the navigable entrance of middle North America, Montréal, Toronto, then US cities Detroit, Chicago, etc. ahead...

Australia would likely be an archipeoalago and drown all the islands and severely damaged by the waves and drown Perth, Adelaide and Sydney also Asia will drown and flick the gulfs and seas to drown all of Qatar and Bahrain and reach the capital of Iran but in India all of Bangladesh will drown and move further away from Sri Lanka and drown Colombo. South East Asia however will be and island so drown to whoosh the waters and swallow Bangkok all of Singapore Ho Chi Minh City Manila, Tagum and Jakarta even pushes Shanghai and Bejjing but in Europe Venice and Odessa will be flooded in the same time and the Crimean peninsula will seas to exist then Venice, London, Lisbon, Barcelona and London will be underwater in America short floods will swallow Sacramento, Portland and San Francisco will be an island with no San Jose so all of Florida, New York, DC, All of Delaware and Miami but South America will swallow Rio De Janiero, Lima and Buenos Aires Antarctica will no longer exist and be islands and cracks within the deserts.

assuming the jokers are still around when the ice melts, I don't think they will be laughing when they go to the super market and see that a steak costs $500, and ear of corn costs $10, a gallon of milk costs $150, and a pound of coffee costs $600. So laugh now folks when you can, because you won't be laughing in a few decades...

This "theory" would only relate to LAND BASED ICE, as floating ice has already displaced its volume with sea levels, put an ice cube in a glass, fill the glass to the brim, and when the ice melts no water spills over the rim of the glass. the cube's volume has already displaced the water.

You people are clueless!!! Ocean beds are made of basalt which is heavier than land based limestone. Plus more water more weight. We float on land the oceans will never pour on to the land because of the polar caps melting. You all just love to create mass panic . Dumb asses
