Ice Sheet Loss in Greenland Accelerating

Arctic (19).jpg

The accelerating warming of the Arctic region´s climate leads to glaciers melting permanently, which causes sea level rise all over our planet. Why is this a problem, and, not only in and for the Arctic region?

To understand why sea level rise is so detrimental for our planet, think about all the people who live in so called climate hot spots, especially vulnerable regions such as (large) coastal cities with millions of inhabitants. If and when sea levels rise sufficiently much without any action being taken to prevent this, these cities and regions will end up being covered by water. Furthermore, especially vulnerable island states, are estimated to be inhabitable within only a few decades due to sea level rise.

Fiji, a group of around 300 islands, is one of the already affected island states. Some of its islands, including Tuvalu, Kiribati, Vanuatu and the Marshall Islands are already suffering from extreme weather events. Fiji is right now hosting the UN Climate Change Conference COP23 in Bonn. Learn more here.
