Now, scientists are coming up with a new study. The study is about Greenland. Greenland is the biggest island in the world. It is full of ice. However, it is getting warmer, and something bad is happening. The ice is melting. It is turning into water.
Last year, 586 billion tons of Greenland’s ice melt. It is a lot of ice. It is the same amount as 140 trillion(万亿) gallons of water. It is not easy to imagine the amount. Greenland’s ice increases the world’s sea level by 0.06 inches last year. It is a very big number.
Scientists say that climate change is the main problem. Our Earth is getting warmer. Ice is melting. It is a problem for countries close to the sea. Some islands will be under water in the future.
