The Shrinking Ice of Global Warming by City-Tech blogger Irania Vazquez

Global warming is not something to be taken lightly because there are many things that it is effecting, one of these matters being the melting of ice in the Arctic and Antarctic and many other places. In an article by Alasdair Wilkins entitled “Climate Change Could Melt All The Arctic Ice By 2045” it states that ice has been disappearing in the Arctic Ocean since at least 1979. The melting of the ice in such places interferes and alters the environment for all the animals that inhabit these areas. Animals such as polar bears and penguins need ice in order to have a stable ground to be in these areas. They use the ice as their shelter and as a way of surviving because they cannot be in the water for extreme periods. If all the ice in both places melts, this could possibly lead to the extinction of most of the animals that rely on the ice for their survival.
