What do Dinosaurs and the Human Race have in common? EXTINCTION.

Close your eyes...BAM! 66 million years ago one asteroid led to the extinction of the DINOSAURS! Don't let the rising Global Sea-level cause the extinction of the HUMAN RACE.

The article, “Scientists fear the ‘doomsday glacier’ is in even more trouble than we feared” by Common Dreams, talks about how in the antarctic, there is a glacier referred to as Thwaites Glacier and scientists have recorded water underneath the glacier that is warming at an alarming rate. This warming glacier could soon melt and have a dramatic effect on Global sea-level. According to Sophie Lewis with CBS News, “Scientists continue to warn that the entire West Antarctic Ice Sheet could collapse within the next 100 years, leading to a sea-level rise of nearly 10 feet and flooding coastlines around the world,” (Lewis 2020). If the Global Sea-level rises 10 feet in the next 100 years, then it would threaten over 12.3 million people by losing nearly 28,800 square miles of land. As a result of the melting of glaciers threatening our very existence, we also have to deal with the decrease in animals, plants, and an increase in hurricanes to look forward to. Life as we know it would be something out of a science fiction motion picture, chaotic. Unfortunately in my extensive research, I found out that there is not much we can do to prevent the rising Global Sea-Level, “After conducting a risk assessment, which includes both assessing the probabilities of the future occurrences of individual events and the magnitude of the consequences of the events, a Team will gain an improved understanding of how sea-level rise may affect its coastline,” (Russell 2012). All we can do is make the proper precautions and hope for the best because nature will usually have its way.
