It is no longer uncommon to hear the phrase “global warming”. The phenomenon is known to almost everyone in the world. A relatively small number of people, on the other hand, are extremely concerned about the hazard. And they are taking action to prevent the long-term warming of the Earth’s atmosphere. However many individuals choose to live in denial, the glaciers will continue to melt regardless of how many others believe the opposite to be true.
It is expected that the ice caps would melt as the global temperature rises. And this will ultimately lead to an increase in water levels throughout the globe. Climate Central experts came up with a concept in which they visited some of the world’s most iconic locations. In this particular scenario, they projected how things might seem in 2050 if the global temperature rises by 3 degrees Celsius from current levels. In as little as 30 years, the majority of our civilization might be destroyed or submerged under the seas. Please view the graphics below, which were generated by Climate Central researchers as hypothetical scenarios.
