What if it all melts?
What will happen if all ice-caps around the world are going to melt ? off course, the sea level will rise about 230 feet (70 meters). The ocean will cover all the coastal cities and the land area would shrink significantly. Yet many cities, such as Denver, would survive.
What are the chances?
All the ice is not going to melt; as Antarctic ice caps, where most of the ice exists, has survived many weird warm conditions like now several times. Usually, ice doesn’t just melt, it can also break into huge pieces and flow down through rivers to reach the oceans.
Is there a way out?
It will affect the coastal valleys and shores. Since it is not possible to guess the speed of ice flowing, a solution is somewhat impossible.
Scientists are now studying how exactly icecaps are going to melt to find a practical solution for the process. One of the main cause of melting will be global warming. To make our planet safe, what we can do is, take precautions against Global warming.
