How Earth Would Look If All The Ice Melted

44939 ratings | 14824903 views
We learned last year that many of the effects of climate change are irreversible. Sea levels have been rising at a greater rate year after year, and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates they could rise by another meter or more by the end of this century. As National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world's major cities.

If this’ll happen, then we humans’ll set up new ports and all near the new water areas.

Trump is dangerous, this evil old man stopped to protect climate; this odd old man makes America poor again. We hope that benevolent aliens (Pleiadians, …) will come and help us against Trump, the dangerous chief of deep state.

thanks Science Insider, for letting Canadians know how important they are!. You do know that the U.S is not the only country in North America, right??? There's a lot of land north of that US border.....mainly where ALL THE ICE IS! I also noticed that Mexico wasn't shown, who made this video, Trump? And the islands were forgotten about as well, Jamaica, etc. So sad, no more ghanja man! 😱

This video seems like not showing any change to Indonesia. Does it mean when all ice melted, it wont affect at all to Indonesia?
In Harmony With Earth (4 days ago)
If the Earth's ice melted all sea level would drop. Most ice is floating in oceans and frozen water expands. Droughts are causing ice to melt and temperature to heat. If it rained like it should the glaciers would grow from the snowfall there would be more expansion from sea ice and sea level will rise. The weather is manipulated by aircraft pollutants deliberately to keep you dependant and controlled.
raymond gonzalez (4 days ago)
- keep in mind that the ice age created the ice.. before that there was no ice. so... this is normal... no need to panic.

If the ice was sitting on the water with water underneath going down 6 to ten miles deep of ice, then when it melts you will lose water out of the ocean by about 2 miles down NO water. Put ice in a cup fill then top with water just before full, now watch how the weight of the ice pushing down the surface by weight, you will see the ice holds water higher. When it melts you will see the water go down from glass. The weight holds the water down, so ocean will recede by  one or two miles. That's how they walked that earth when it had no water, the ice must have froze again and that's why they are all underwater. Some buildings are 4 or 5 miles deep so that must have been dry. I say the inland of Australia was a big dam, and like that all over the world it was like that with large areas on land that held water like a dam. Someone must have destroyed the mountains or walls holding the water in those places. Adelaide looks like a place where the water was released back into the sea. You have to have ice freeze more to increase height of water on land. Water never disappears it just changes form, there is no gain or loss, earth has always had the same volume of water.

Sorry, your wrong mate, Hollow Earth, is where the excess water will end up, there are already, 7 Oceans in there from, the last, iceage, did you ever wonder where all that water disappeared to. Our land mass won't change at all, same for Global Warming. The Arctic, entrance is concaved an 1400miles across, the opening. is 500, miles across, Eskimos, row in an out of there daily, an think, nothing of it, suppose it's how it is when your born to it. The US Navy had a warship in there,??? it's documented. anyway.. This Planet of ours is not by chance, it's by design, A HOLLOW GLOBE. cheers.

If we dont stop.using water we will ran out of it but if we contaminate the world the ice will melt and we will have too much water. Problems solve each other

To be honest this will really happend so in 2036 may have the first summer i Antarctica so These fucki g humans should build maschines to suck as much see water as they can so we can survive that HOLY SHIT DO SOMETHING JUST POST MY COMMENT EVERYWHERE IDONT WANNA GET DRINKED OR DIE PLSS

Well, Australia gets a mention but New Zealand is too small and not that important to bother about? Believe it or not, we have a land mass greater than Britain, Ireland, Netherlands... you get the picture; bigger than lots of European countries. If they get flooded what is going to happen to us. I live 8 metres above mean sea level, will I be able to sit on my back steps and catch fresh fish for dinner?

thats not how ice works. if you put ice in a glass and add water to the rim then let the ice melt the glass wont overflow. plus if its hot enough for all the ice on earth to melt the water would evaporate so no overflow

I'm not sure how accurate this is. Perhaps there is some element I am not aware of, but I would think the Western Interior Seaway in the Americas would have come back.
