Antarctica’s glaciers are crumbling a record speed, faster than their replenishment rate.

This means the global sea levels can rise to a catastrophic level earlier than predicted.

Researchers Estimate Ants Outnumber Humans 2.5 Million to One

Researchers Estimate , Ants Outnumber Humans , 2.5 Million to One. Scientists now estimate that the global population of ants is a staggering 20 quadrillion. 'The Guardian' reports that means there are approximately 2.5 million ants for every single human. The ant has thrived since the age of the dinosaur. The oldest-known ant fossil dates back to about 100 million years, at a time known as the Cretaceous period. Ants certainly play a very central role in almost every terrestrial ecosystem, Patrick Schultheiss, Co-author and entomologist at the University of Würzburg in Germany and the University of Hong Kong, via 'The Guardian'. The world is home to over 12,000 known species of ants, which range in size from about 1 millimeter to about 1.2 inches long. . They exist everywhere on the planet, except in Antarctica, Greenland, Iceland and a few island nations. The ant's closest relatives are bees and wasps. . The team's work was published in the journal 'Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.'. Ants are so essential for the smooth working of biological processes that they can be seen as ecosystem engineers, Patrick Schultheiss, Co-author and entomologist at the University of Würzburg in Germany and the University of Hong Kong, via 'The Guardian'. The late ant scientist E.O. Wilson once called them ’the little things that run the world’, Patrick Schultheiss, Co-author and entomologist at the University of Würzburg in Germany and the University of Hong Kong, via 'The Guardian'.

Sea Levels To Rise Nearly 1 Foot by 2100 Due to Greenland’s Ice Loss, Study Shows

Sea Levels To Rise Nearly 1 Foot by 2100 , Due to Greenland’s Ice Loss, Study Shows. CNBC reports that the study was published on Aug. 29 in the journal 'Nature Climate Change.'. Scientists around the world used satellite measurements of Greenland's ice loss between 2000 and 2019. The study's findings show that climate change will cause about 3.3% of Greenland's ice sheet to melt by 2100. This will cause the sea level to rise at least 10 inches. . Scientists say it will happen regardless of the world's efforts to cut carbon emissions. . CNBC reports that Greenland's ice sheet is the second-largest in the world after the one in the Antarctic. Previous studies have suggested that sea levels around the world could rise up to 23 feet if the entire thing were to melt. . A study published in 'PNAS' found that rising sea levels threaten to displace nearly 200 million people by 2100
