While reading I couldn’t help but think about how the polar ice caps are melting due to global warming! Ice itself is so fascinating since it is water just in the solid form, yet has its own identity as ice. The polar ice caps are enormous structures of ice, yet they are at an extreme risk. According to scientists, it might be only 5,000 years before the entirety of the polar ice caps have melted. Although 5,000 years seems life forever to us, in the spectrum of time and the entire existence of earth, 5,000 years in only a matter of seconds away. To prevent global warming, the human population needs to make major changes to our daily lives such as: using renewable energy, reduce water waste, and stop deforestation.
