Description:

Scientific evidence strongly suggests that ice-covered regions of the Earth are particularly sensitive to even small changes in global temperature. This video segment adapted from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) Goddard Space Flight Center details how ice affects the Earth system, including preventing the evaporation of ocean water, reflecting sunlight, and influencing oceanic circulation. It also discusses how global warming may already be responsible for a significant reduction in glacial ice, which may in turn have significant consequences for the planet.
