A. Rise in sea-levels worldwide due to melting glaciers. * According to NASA, the polar ice cap is now melting at the alarming rate of 9 percent per decade. Arctic ice thickness has decreased 40 percent since the 1960s. * At the current rate of retreat, all of the glaciers in the Glacier National Park will be gone by 2070 * Greenland holds 10 percent of the global ice mass. If it melts, sea levels could increase by up to 21 feet. B. More killer storms and...
