Disaster threat:

A large crack has appeared on the Thwaites Glacier or the Doomsday Glacier in West Antarctica.

the process of global warming, according to an international group of scientists who are observing the glacier with an area of ​​120,000 kilometers.

The fact is that almost the entire surface of the glacier is covered with small cracks. Uneven heating leads to the fact that the instability of the glacier increases, and, as a result, it collapses. So, the glacier has already “ lost '' about 600 billion tons of ice, and its melting is actively continuing.

Scientists suggest that the “ Doomsday Glacier '' could collapse in five years. This will lead to a change in sea levels, and millions of people living in coastal zones will face the threat of flooding.
