What if Antarctica melted?

A previous article on how rapid global warming is bringing this planet closer to the Day of Judgment gave an example of the melting of the Arctic Circle ice around the Arctic Ocean, which formed a layer in 1981. Spread over an area of ​​14.5 million kilometers north of Russia to Canada, and today the area is shrinking to just 4.14 million kilometers, for the first time, the organisms here are facing a serious survival threat. If not, in the next few decades, the Arctic Circle's white bears and white leopards will only appear on the album.

The Global Seed Vault (storage of all possible types of edible seeds) was established in 2008 in the same Arctic Circle, inside an icy mountain on the Norwegian island of Spitzbergen, in the same Arctic Circle. Because if the seeds go extinct, they will be safe in this bank. In this iron tunnel vault, one million sample packets of thousands of varieties of Bhanat Bhanat seeds are stored in the form of human food. You can think of this seed bank as Noah's ark of seed. But this year, in 2017, the faces of the experts working on the project turned yellow for the first time when they saw that the molten water from the surrounding ice had entered the tunnel, but thankfully it froze again in a few days. This has never happened before in this region. The reason is that 2017 has been declared as the hottest year in history. Now experts are worried about next year's temperature.

Let's now move straight from the north to the far south to the continent of Antarctica, where 60% of the world's freshwater is trapped in the form of ice about two miles thick. This ice often breaks down by its own weight and forms icebergs on the sea. Estimate the size and extent of this ice sheet so that if the whole of Antarctica melts, the world sea level will rise to 160 feet. Every car driver, air traveler and beef in the world The steak eater is also unconsciously contributing to the rise in temperature and is worried about the possibility of Antarctica's ice melting.

About 120,000 years ago, the Earth was as hot as it could be by the end of this century. The reason for this heat is the scientific assumption that there may have been a meteor shower from the sky or a large planet. The piece would have hit the ground and melted so much ice that the sea level would have risen twenty to thirty feet higher than it is today. But the early human race 120,000 years ago was so far removed from the modern human race. That it did not develop the consciousness and sound method of modern man to pass on the story of this flood to the next generation. Then the ice age engulfed the earth. Then, according to one theory, most of the oceans also came under ice and its surface also went down by four hundred feet compared to today.

Twenty-five thousand years ago, when this last ice age was coming to an end and the melting of ice caused the shoots of modern human life to sprout along the shores, then by the end of the ice age, there would have been a great flood that was experienced and observed. In the form of ancient inspired and non-inspired stories, it is still attached to our social psyche. For example, in the story of Gulgamash, it was said that there was so much water on all sides that even the gods got scared. In Vedic literature, it is said that Vishnu told a witness Fill me with seeds. We all remember the Bible and the Qur'an mentioning the Flood of Noah and the loading of every animal in Noah's ark. Antarctica and Greenland are monuments to this great ice age.

So are we once again heading for a torment like the Great Flood? At the time of the last flood, the population of the planet was very small anyway, so many people, due to their backwardness, somehow managed to escape from the coast to the hinterland, but today the population of this land. It is approaching eight billion and about 40% of the population lives in coastal areas. The world's major cities are along or a short distance from the coast and are addicted to trillions of properties that date back 25,000 years. Man was free.

From the 1970s, voices began to rise that the ice sheets in the northern and southern freezing currents were thinning. Regular research from satellites was used to observe this process of change in the 1990s. Started It is estimated that the rate of ice melting has tripled in the last 27 years, and at least 100 million tons of ice are entering the ocean each year.

Late last year, the New York Times, in co-operation with the US Air Force, covered Antarctica and, with a team of environmentalists from Columbia University, sent four journalists aboard a specially equipped C-13 Hercules. Curious travelers observed that the western part of Antarctica is experiencing more rapid ice melting than the rest of the continent. The team observed an iceberg of the size of the state of California that was close to the coast but isolated. It was floating. This piece was broken by an ice sheet called Rose Shelf.

An analysis of the material collected will only lead to the final conclusion of the rate at which the ice of Antarctica is melting or breaking, and based on this the multiplication of the accumulated differences will determine the ecological future of this century.

What scientific map of L can be made? According to the initial computer projection, the rate at which the ice in Antarctica is breaking is expected to increase by six feet by the end of the century. This means that cities such as Miami, New York and Shanghai will no longer exist and millions of people living in these cities will have to relocate to the hinterland, leaving them with an unbearable additional economic and social burden. This can result in a wide range of issues. However, most environmental scientists view this computer projection with skepticism, and they are not as pessimistic as a quintessential computer.

The question is how fast the ice layer is thinning or breaking. As a result of the soil that will emerge from under this layer, will the frozen bacteria and viruses hidden in it for thousands of years be reactivated? Can be brought to the stage of "one hassle free for one"?
