EFFECTS of GLOBAL WARMING on SURFACE ICE

Melting ice in the water has no impact on the rising sea level, it was already there. Its the ice on land that adds water to the oceans.

Polar ice has been around for thousands of years. The larges ice sheet is 3,000 years old. Then it began to crack in 2000. Now its cracked all the way through and is beginning to break off into chunks.

This ice held a fresh water ecosystem and when it cracked the water spilled into the sea. Now the whales, seals, etc. to change migration patterns and where to find them.

Not only is the melting ice effecting water levels but also Alaska's forests. The warmer temperatures in Alaska have made the spruce bark beetle reproduce more, they have chew up 3.4 million acres of Alaskan forests from 1993 to 2003.
