Thwaites Glacier - Antarctica
This is OUR TIME
We are driving, sitting in the front seat of the car. We can see everything in front of us happening. There are storms, typhoons, heavy rain, heavy snowfall, floods, forest fires, tornadoes, and freak temperature swings all over the world. We all know why.
Our planet is heating up and the climate is undergoing rapid, rapid changes. It's our responsibility to watch the road so we know where we are going. Just like driving a car, we should be aware of how the planet is responding to the consumption of so many humans, machines and fossil fuels on earth. We are not going to change our behavior very easily, but we have to prepare for our future world. Mark my words, when Thwaites Glacier collapses, our new world is born. The future is now! In truth, our world changes everyday, but Thwaites Glacier in Antarctic will have an almost immediate impact. Scientist are predicting that in less than 10 years, the doomsday glacier will collapse and release A LOT of WATER! That event will raise sea levels. How much? Some say 60 centimeters, others say over 1 meter... depending on how many other glaciers will fall with it. Think of Thwaites glacier as a cork in an upside down bottle of wine. The cork is old and breaking. Do we have 5 years? Maybe not.
Be informed. Google it.
