The Glacier Melt-Picture 1 - Year 2020, Photograph by BJORN ANDERS NYMOEN, MYSHOT Picture 2 - Year 2011, Photograph by MIKE LOCKHART, USGSGlaciers and ice caps cover about 10 percent of the world’s landmass today. They hold about 75 percent of the world’s fresh water. If all of this ice melted, sea levels would rise by about 70 meters (230 feet). The IPCC reported that the global sea level rose about 1.8 mm (0.07 inches) per year from 1961 to 1993, and 3.1 mm (0.12 inches) per year since 1993.Cutting down forests, Decaying of plant material, Burning of Fossil Fuels, Livestock Farming, Landfills, are the reasons for these glacier melts. The rapid melting won't only cause drastic affect on human life but on all the lives on earth. It is high time that we take ACTION.Source- National Geographic
