Greenland’s Melting Ice May Affect Everyone’s Future

https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2019/10/greenland-ice-oceans-melting-fast/

This article is about how Greenland is affecting global warming. It contributes the most to global sea level rise. Greenland is surrounded by ice, and a lot of that ice is melting, therefore adding a lot of water to the sea. Almost 70% of the human population, and most major cities, are less than 100 miles from the coast. Scientists calculate that over the past 50 years, Greenland’s melting ice has added at least an inch of water to the world’s oceans, and the melting is increasing in speed. If climate change isn’t stopped, then by 2100, enough of Greenland’s ice would melt to raise sea levels by a 12 inches. Life on the coasts would be greatly affected by 12 inches of rising sea levels. Scientists are trying to figure out if the ice is melting from warm water or from warming atmosphere. 

I chose this article because it is important to our world, and if humans don’t stop climate change soon, it will not be reversible. Our life on Earth will be destroyed if that happens. This article is important to science because it gives an example to scientists about what is going to happen when climate change increases.
