Earth is nearing its end and NASA has something to prove it
NASA the US space agency is privy to valuable information not only about space but about our planet. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that NASA could well predict if Earth’s end is near simply by means of analysing the data recorded over the years on the innumerable environmental changes to the planet. The latest as NSA’s proof of what could happen in the coming centuries is a video depicting the vast impact on polar ice caps as a result of global warming.
You most probably have heard this already how the polar ice caps are melting. The recent unnatural floods in parts of the world and various American cities are testimony to such an occurrence.
1 The polar ice caps are slowly disappearing
However more importantly is new research form the space watchdog showing the pace of reduction of the ice in the Arctic and Antarctic. The video is an animated one depicting the decline of Perennial Arctic ice. Perennial ice is that which doesn’t not melt the entire year through and isn’t affected by change of seasons.
This image below shows perennial arctic ice recorded in 1984. There is still a considerably large and thick area of ice.
2 Drastic changes in the ecosystem
And now the drastic change as shown by the space agency in spring 2016. The ice can be visibly seen as almost disappearing. This is extremely dangerous for the planet and is an indicator that the end of the earth is near or a disaster of epic proportions is imminent centuries from now.
Although scientists say that sea ice regenerates year after year and the health of the ecosystem and the life of the planet depend on it, still, the degeneration of ice is happening faster than it can regenerate.
3 Several implications if ocean levels rise
The reduction in perennial ice can have several negative implications for the planet. Ocean levels would rise and that would be the end of several coastal cities. Countries like England would receive incessant rain where the northern jet stream will shift towards a southerly direction bringing with it icy cold polar winds. This would result in colder winters and even heavier snowfall.
If the earth’s end is near, then NASA’s video truly proves it.
