Two out of three glaciers are likely to disappear by the end of this century

Two out of three glaciers are likely to disappear by the end of this century

 As greenhouse gas emissions are increasing worldwide, the effects of global warming will worsen in the coming days. A new study shows that the number of glaciers in all regions will decrease if the situation continues.

One of the many effects of climate change and global warming is the gradual loss of glaciers. Currently, due to climate research, it is seen that the ice is melting rapidly in the world due to global warming. A recent NASA report said that after 28 years, the sea level would rise by about one foot.

A major cause of sea level rise is the melting of polar ice caps. As a result of continuous global warming, this inevitable disaster is going to descend on the earth. If proper steps are not taken now, people will be responsible for this deep crisis in such a situation.

This new research has revealed that global warming causes glacier loss.

David Rouns, Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, has speculated through research. The world could lose between 26 and 41 percent of its glaciers after 100 years. That is, two of the three glaciers in the world will decrease.

Moreover, Researchers have found that if greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise at this rate, more than 80 percent of the world’s glaciers will disappear within a decade.

Most of the small glaciers will melt, the study said. That means the height of the glaciers will be less than one square kilometer. However, their loss will affect local hydrology, tourism, and glacier side effects.

According to the study, if the temperature rises by more than 2 degrees Celsius, the impact will be immense in Central Europe, Western Canada, and the Americas. All glaciation in these areas will be gone entirely.

In the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP-27) discussion, researchers said it would take 30 to 100 years to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and ultimately stop them.
