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 andÂ together with it city of Miami. All big cities that are located on the eastÂ coast would be flooded including Boston, New York, Philadelphia and others thatÂ you can see on the picture below.

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