You should now know:

  • What the difference is between weather and climate.
  • That there is a difference between major and minor climate changes.
  • That humans can influence the climate.
  • What the greenhouse effect is.

And it will mean three things for the ice when the climate becomes warmer:

  1. The warmer it becomes above 0 degrees, the faster ice will melt.
  2. There will be more days with temperatures above 0 degrees meaning more days with ice melt.
  3. Ice will flow faster, which means there will be more calving in areas where it will flow into the sea.


– What can you do to reduce the emission of CO2?

– What can you do to reduce the emission of methane?
