In 1995, there was over 11,000 square kilometers to one of the last remaining sections of Antarctica’s Larsen B Ice Shelf – which is significantly thinning, according to NASA. Larsen C is stable but shows signs of thinning as well. An ice shelf is a part of a glacier, but is a barrier that keeps most of the ice intact. Once this breaks down, this leads to disintegration. This supports that the National Oceanic Administration, CO2 emissions are higher than ever – relative to greenhouse gases –which are deteriorating glaciers affecting the lives of millions. As this occurs, the pace at which global sea levels rise will accelerate.
