Ice is melting all over the world. The greatest toll is occurring at the Earth’s Poles. Places like Greenland and Alaska are also receiving a great effect from this. Animals in the Poles like Polar Bears and Penguin’s are suffering due to ice melting and temperatures getting too warm for their cold natured selves to handle.

While global warming may have current impacts on the world, it also can have future impacts. Sea levels are expected to rise between 7 to 23 inches by the end of this century and the continuation of melting at the poles can add about 4 to 8 inches more. If the global temperatures increases, hurricanes and other storms are likely to become stronger. Other weather catastrophes like floods and droughts will be more common. The availability of fresh water in the world will be decreased due to fresh water resources melting. Some animal species will move from...
