Globally, 2022 will be the fifth or sixth warmest year on record.

The National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) at the University of Colorado Boulder says Antarctic sea ice has reached its lowest level in 45 years. Science Alert writes about it.

In particular, on February 21, scientists recorded that the sea ice area of ​​Antarctica fell to 1.79 million square kilometers. At the same time, the previous “anti-record” was set last year in 2022.

“The melting of sea ice exposes the thicker ice shelves that support the ice floor in Antarctica to waves and higher temperatures. At the same time, the melting of sea ice is unlikely to have of great impact on sea levels, because the ice, in fact, the massive ice shelves of Antarctica are surrounded by sea ice, which are extensions of freshwater glaciers, which in turn threatens catastrophic sea level rise within centuries if it continues to melt as the planet’s temperature rises.

Remember, scientists from the University of Newcastle in the UK said that by the end of the century, about half of the 215 thousand glaciers will disappear from the surface of the Earth. This process threatens the lives of millions of people, and not where thought.
