28 trillion tons of ice melted on Earth in less than 30 years

A total of 28 trillion tons of glaciers have melted on Earth since 1994.

The research conducted by scientists at Leeds and Edinburgh universities and University College London revealed that 28 trillion tons of glaciers on Earth have melted in less than 30 years.

Tom Slater from Leeds University pointed out that 28 trillion tons of glacier will cover the entire surface of England with a 100-meter-thick layer of frozen water.

Scientists pointed out that the increase in the amount of melting glaciers will significantly reduce the reflection of sunlight, and accordingly, the sea and the land will warm up more, and therefore global warming may accelerate much more.

Professor Andy Shepherd, Director of the Polar Observation and Modeling Center at the University of Leeds, also warned that every centimeter rise in sea water levels could leave approximately one million people homeless.

Stating that they were amazed by the findings of the research, Shepherd said, “In the past, researchers have examined regional areas such as Antarctica or Greenland where glaciers are melting, but this research covers all melting glaciers around the world.” he said.

It was noted that the rate of glacier loss revealed by experts matches the worst-case scenario predictions summarized by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
