How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

51687 ratings | 15632102 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.

Yeah, that was annoying. I watched the entire video to see what happens to my country and cities I know and literally just when they look like they're finally going to show it, it just stops.

@ScienceInsider, Are you aware there’s also a country called CANADA with 40 million people who’d also care to see what would happen to their country?

I'm sorry. But NO. All if this fear mongering, politically driven, bullshit is really getting old. It seems as though the authorities had to dumb down a few generations of people before they could pull this stunt. And it's fuckin working

So the west of Ireland... WITH THE HIGHEST ELEVATION COASTLINE on the island will be underwater whilst the eastern side will be fine. Yea okay

This propaganda is not accurate. I live in Florida my home has a first floor elevation of 137’ above sea level as 1.19.19. The major American coastal cities such as Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Miami and Los Angels will all be gone. My solution is to get all that glacier ice that’s still on land that everyone’s worried about and build some large lakes throughout the world. Such as the “Lake of the Grand Canyon”, Lake Death Valley, not to mention just filling up the lakes we already have that are going dry!

The sea is nature will recover everything that man has taken away. All that has been created by eliminating space from the sea is for nature, man will pay dearly for this. Mother nature will not be trampled by ignorant, greedy and unscrupulous human beings. His strength will make us disappear whenever he wants. It is not the earth that needs us ... we are the ones who need this mother earth, the sooner we understand it, the better it will be for humanity!🤦‍♀️🌏🤷‍♀️😢🕉❤️

Ice is less dense than water so the glaciers would take up less space in the ocean if they melted thus the water levels would go down
