Greenland ice melting will raise global sea levels by a foot
Greenland ice is melting and it can cause global sea levels to high by a foot, according to new research.
And this will happen in the near future.
New research indicates there is no way to stop it, even if the world stopped the emissions of planet heating gas today.
The study, published Monday in the journal Nature Climate Change, discovered that the overall ice loss from Greenland's ice sheet will trigger at least 10 inches of sea level rise.
Scientists determine that around 3.3% of the Greenland ice sheet is equivalent to 110 trillion tons of ice.
And this 110 trillion tons of ice will inevitably melt
The study also said that US coasts could expect 10 to 12 inches of sea level rise in the next 30 years.
