Melting Ice Caps
While most of us can’t physically see the melting ice caps, they’re melting at a rapid rate every single year. And these photographs would have looked different 50 years ago. Over the last two decades, the melting polar ice caps have raised sea levels by half an inch.
While that doesn’t seem like a lot, by Earth’s standards, that’s an incredibly detrimental amount that will affect the lives of every single animal and person on the planet. Humans destroy everything on earth, the ice caps included. The melting ice caps are also happening faster than scientists expected (Business Insider).
