This Map Shows How Our Planet Would Look in Case All the Ice Melts
Global warming is one of the problems that are being ignored for now, but the consequences will be severe. One of the reasons for increasing temperatures may be the fact that we are using to much fuel, sprays, and chemicals which caused a lot of damage to the ozone layer.
If the temperature increases in years to come, the polar caps will melt down, and we will be facing with the biggest floods in the history of mankind.
Scientists are talking about the danger we would have to cope with in case all the ice melts at the same time. This is one of the possible scenarios if that happens.
Some Capitals Will Be Flooded
The level of Adriatic sea will rise by 215 feet and it will flood all of the ancient cities on the Mediterranean coast. If you were planning on visiting some of these cities, now is your chance.
People from Asia Would Have to Move
At this moment, there are 600 million people living in China.
Africa Would No Longer Exist
The land loss in Africa should be smaller than in the rest of the world, but floods will make a lot of people lose their homes. The high temperatures would make the entire continent unsuitable for living.
Rio Would Be Gone
Buenos Aires, Lima, and Rio will soon parish, and the casualties would count millions. The only place in South America that would be above the sea level are the mountains.
Florida Will Have the Same Bad Luck
People living in the Big Apple would have to find an alternative, otherwise, no one will be able to help when the sea level starts rising.
The consequences of air and sea pollution will cause the melting of the ice caps and the process has already started.
People Living on the East Coast Would Have to Move
Cities like NYC, Atlantic City, Dower, and even Philadelphia would be sunk, as well as Baltimore.
The cities near the coastline would be destroyed, and the people would have to move.
What Will Happen to the South?
These places will be flooded, and will gradually disappear under the water. The scenario scientists have been warning us all along is near and if we need to do something before it's too late.
