 World's Most Dynamic Glaciers Melts in Record Pace

by Veronica Davis


It looks like once again global warming is not just true but surprising everyone at an alarming rate. To all conspiracy theorists and doubters out there it is becoming an easier topic to debate. Almost a decade ago, there was a denial on earth's glaciers ever melting. Today, you can find hundreds of articles proving this theory wrong. It already is being reported that seventy percent of west Canada's Glaciers could be gone by 2100, and if we make the calculations that is in 85 years from now. This would mean that our children will only be reading and viewing photos about what once was Glacier. Or perhaps becoming like an Atlantis.

The world is breaking temperatures, take for example Summer  of July 2015, it is being the recorded as the hottest month ever according to NASA.Another theory of why the glaciers are melting at an alarming rate is to blame the underground hidden volcanoes.

I am sure that there are so many  other contributing factors that are enhancing the glacier's  melting speed. The truth is that studying the glaciers rapid melting pace cannot justify anything once it is gone. As scary as all this sounds,   one cannot ignore these events. With the most recent event  begins
with a name and a date. Its name being  Jakobshavn Isbrae Glacier, its date being August 2015.

Jakobshavn Isbrae Glacier

For those of you who are unfamiliar Jakobshavn Isbrae is the world's most dynamic glaciers and it is Greenland's fastests-moving glacier.

NASA reported that :

Since 2000, Greenland has lost some 739 gigatons of ice, and approximately 30 percent of that loss came from Jakobshavn and four other glaciers. ...Jakobshavn has contributed one millimeter to sea level rise between 2000 to 2011 from calving events like this one.

NASA also reported a calvin event back in May 2014 going back more than a century of observation.
Goddard glaciologist Kelly Brunt, explained the May 2014 event to a " trend that goes back more than a century. Jakobshavn receded more than 40 kiometers (25 miles) between 1850 and 2010," Kelly Brunt also pointed out that  in the "summer of 2012, Jakobshavn  accelerated to speeds not seen before surging at a rate of 17 kilometers ( 10 miles ) per year." Because of its premature chunk of ice loss to the glacier, the statistics of just how many kilometers it has lots is not yet being recorded.
But one thing is for sure, the newsmedia like Washington post and the Weather Network are already reporting this event as a historical ice loss to sea.

Sea Level Rise

The Jakobshavn glacier alone will contribute to sea level rise "than any other single feature in Northern Hemisphere. Just how much has our sea level has risen is one to speculate. But I am sure that sooner than later the results will change probably even before we hear it in the main stream media reports.

Another Glacier called The Thwaies Glacier, will increase global sea levels by 1 to 2 meters.
It is just a matter when.
