Melting Glaciers – at this rate, they may disappear by 2100

The glaciers are melting around the world which we knew but there’s a bit more bad news, they’re melting faster than we previously thought. So fast that if they continue at this rate, they won’t last the century in a number of regions. Which means come 2100, we’ll be living in a very wet, very hot world.

Melting glaciers account for about 30% of the sea level rise. This could (probably more accurate to say will at this point) lead to flooding in coastal areas of the world and in extreme cases, erode them completely.

It will also effect the availability of drinking water. We can’t drink ocean water, remember. Less drinkable water will cause major issues throughout the world. The effects of climate change are really speeding up and may effect future generations a lot sooner than we think.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
