The Big Melt Accelerates

Recent research shows that the changes in earth’s climate have reach a “tipping point”. Some giant glaciers have no return and they could possibly ruin the rest of the ice sheet. Scientists believe that the glaciers will continue to melt until greenhouse gas emissions are released. These glaciers are telling scientists that in the future (centuries away), more land will be covered by water which will cause the sea level to rise.
