The Mostly Negative Side to Climate Change

What Happens When the Arctic Ice Shelf Melts Dramatically?

The process of climate change, observed in recent decades, is a set of natural interconnections and inter-dependencies. The crucial factor, temperature, leads to most modern natural disasters (reinforcement of Atlantic cyclones, for example) and slow and steady weather shifts.

According to weather forecasters, the Earth’s temperature might rise 1,1-6,4°C in the 21st century, so both scientists as well as the global society should be aware of the contemporary state of the planet, and the possible consequences.

One of the already confirmed observations is the Arctic Meltdown: this area reacts to global heat, experiencing a reduction of ice spaces, resulting in the rising of the world’s ocean levels. Continue reading
