What would happen if all the ice on earth melted, Bill Nye?
If all the ice on Greenland and Antarctica melts, the sea level will rise significantly, according to Nye. And at 70 meters, the rising sea levels would drown out most of the US East Coast, much of the West Coast, the entire state of Florida and huge areas of Asia. It would also create a new inland sea in Australia.
What will happen if all the land-based ice melts and reaches the ocean?
If, for example, the Greenland ice sheet melts completely and the meltwater flows completely into the oceans, global sea levels will rise by about seven meters (23 feet) and the Earth will rotate more slowly, with the length of the day becoming longer than it is today, by about two milliseconds.
What will happen to the length of the day if all the polar ice melts?
If polar ice caps melt, water would spread on Earth and its moment of inertia would increase. However, by the law of conservation of momentum, the rotational speed would decrease so that the angular momentum remains constant. As the rotation rate decreases, the day length will increase.
How many people would be underwater if the polar caps melted?
"According to recent studies, there is enough ice in the Earth's polar caps to cause a rise of about 250-300 feet (80-100 m) of sea level," he said on his website. More than 75 percent of the world's population lives below 300 feet (100 m) above sea level, including the vast majority of all major urban areas.
What will happen if all the ice in the world melts?
If these ice caps melted, the rest of the world would be affected. In Europe, pictured, cities including London and Venice would be lost underwater, as would all of the Netherlands and most of Denmark. What Britain would look like if the ice caps melted.
What would the earth look like if the polar caps melted?
He imagines what the Earth would look like if the ice caps around the North and South Poles melted and released five million cubic miles of water into the world's oceans.
What will happen to Australia if the polar caps melt?
Much of Australia would be inundated by the Artesian Sea and the Murray Bight. The world's deserts will expand, engulfing areas as large as the entire continent of Australia, including southern Europe, the Caribbean and all of southeast Africa. 'Such a rise in temperature would also be devastating to the environment and human civilization.'
