Here’s What the Earth Will Look Like After All the Ice Melts

Remember a few years ago when National Geographic came out with a map showing what the world would look like after sea levels rose 216 feet from all the ice melting? Well, it happened. (There was also some pushback that the data was too optimistic) Anyway, the guys over at Business Insider just put together this nifty video exploring our would-be watery world.

It would take a very long time indeed for all the ice on Earth to melt. I don’t know how long. But long. Like a thousand years? Point is it’s not like this is going to happen on Tuesday or even a thousand Tuesdays from now, but the arc of history is long and our descendants will never “sit upon the ground and tell sad stories of the death of kings,” if there is no longer any ground for them to sit on.

 

 

Global warming is bad and every day we don’t do anything about it we should feel bad.

Fact:

In-depth journalism that investigates the powerful takes real money and is so damn important right now.But it doesn’t take a Mother Jones investigation to know that billionaires and corporations will never fund the type of reporting (like they do politicians) we do that exists to help bring about change. Instead, our mission-driven journalism is made possible by people power, and has been for 46 years now since our founding as a non-profit.

In “TITLE TK” Monica Bauerlein writes about the perilous moment we’re in, and why it’s so important that we raise $325,000 by the time November’s midterms are decided so we can be ready to throw everything we have at the big issues facing the nation no matter what happens.
