Greenland and Antarctica melting match ‘worse-case scenario’ predictions
The study, published in Nature Climate Change, has confirmed the polar ice caps are losing mass at rates threatening dire sea-level rise.
As reported in the Express:
- Trillions of tons of ice are melting
- The melt has caused a sea level rise estimated at 17.8 mm
- The melt contributes to coastal flooding, shifting ocean currents and extreme weather events
- A further 6.7 inches (17 cm) rise is predicted by the end of the century to impact on millions of people
