Earth’s ice sheets tracking worst-case climate scenarios

Researchers said that Greenland and Antarctic ice sheets are tracking the UN’s worst-case scenarios for sea level rise. Mass loss from 2007 to 2017 due to melt-water and crumbling ice aligned with the IPCC’s most extreme forecasts, which see the two ice sheets adding up to 40 cms to global oceans by 2100. This could increase the destructive power of storm surges and expose coastal regions home.

This is scary, and extremely worrisome, to be honest. There were predictions that the storm surge from Hurricane Laura could extend upto 40 miles inward, and that is pretty horrific. With rising seawater levels, this is only going to get worse. Erratic weather and more hurricanes are just some of the adverse effects which we will see due to climate change.
