On Monday, February 3, scientists found out that warm ocean water moving underneath the glaciers is melting the ice in the Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden Glacier in Greenland, found by the journal Nature Geoscience and by researchers who have studied the Nioghalvfjerdsfjorden Glacier.  

The ice sheet caused 25% of the sea levels to rise in the world. The water from the Atlantic Ocean is going underneath the glaciers, which are melting the ice according to CNN. The glacier that was found by scientists is 50 miles long.

 The glacier in Greenland could raise sea levels globally more than 24 feet. Last summer, in only one day, Greenland lost 11 billion tons of surface ice to the ocean. 

The heat from the ocean could decrease fishing in many parts of the world. Warmer oceans could cause hurricanes, which produce more rainfall due to climate change.

According to a study published in December in the journal Nature Geoscience, Greenland’s ice sheet is currently melting seven times faster than it was in 1992.

In order to reduce the effects of climate change, CO2 emissions must be reduced. You could do that by making sure to turn off lights, recycle, walk to school etc.
