Earth is losing 500 billion tons of ice a year
To the NASA : ” Using satellite measurements (…), the researchers measured ice loss in all of Earth’s land ice between 2003 and 2010, with particular emphasis on glaciers and ice caps outside of Greenland and Antarctica. ”
” The total global ice mass lost from Greenland, Antarctica and Earth’s glaciers and ice caps during the study period was about 4.3 trillion tons , adding about 12 millimeters to global sea level. “
This is another proof of what we have been knowing for years : unless we start to act on the matter, we are going to end up in high water… and in serious trouble.
