The Arctic is heating up twice as fast as the global average and this can be a problem. But there is a lot more happening that people don’t fully understand. The Antarctic ice sheets hold about 61% of all fresh water on Earth and if it were to all melt sea levels could rise 200 feet. If this were to happen it could ruin many things for people. A study in 2017 said by 2100 up to 2 billion people or fifth of the world’s population could be displaced from their homes and will be forced to live in the inlands because of rising sea levels and more than 10% of the country will be underwater. Rising sea levels also contribute to warmer global temperatures and that could change what kind of crops farmers grow.
