National Geographic has done a research about ice on the planet Earth. They said that if all ice melted sea level would rise by 66 meters and some of the largest cities in the world would disappear.

In North America the peninsula Florida would disappear and together with it city of Miami. All big cities that are located on the east coast would be flooded including Boston, New York, Philadelphia and others that you can see on the picture below.

Scientists say that for this melting process is needed more than 5,000 years. However, if we burn all our reserves of coal and natural gas and add to the atmosphere 3 trillion tons of carbon, this process would be accelerated. It is necessary to use renewable energy more and begin to care about our planet. We started with destroying it, now we need to keep it even more.
