Effect Of The Globe Warming


Less Ice in the Arctic
Greenland’s MeltingGreenland is melting at a rate of 52 cubic miles per year—much faster than once predicted. If Greenland’s entire 2.5 million cubic kilometers of ice were to melt, it would lead to a global sea level rise of 7.2 meters, or more than 23 feet.

The Northwest Passage Becomes a Reality
"Less Ice in the ArcticThe amount of ice in the Arctic at the end of the 2005 summer “was the smallest seen in 27 years of satellite imaging, and probably the smallest in 100 years.” Experts said it’s the strongest evidence of global warming in the Arctic thus far."

More FloodsDuring the summer of 2007, Brit

ain suffered its worst flood in 60 years. Scientists point the finger directly at global warming, which changed precipitation patterns and is now causing more “intense rainstorms across parts of the northern hemisphere.”
More FiresHotter temperatures could also mean larger and more devastating wildfires.

Higher Sea Levels;Scientists believe sea levels will be three feet higher by the end of the century than they are now.
