World’s Ice Is Melting Faster Than Ever, Climate Scientists Say

Robert Lee Hotz of The Wall Street Journal writes that the world’s ice is melting faster than ever before, according to a new report.

The C3 Take
  • Ice plays a crucial role in regulating the Earth’s temperature.
  • The study, published in the European Geophysical journal Cryosphere, found that the rate of global melting has accelerated 65% since the 1990s.
  • Big government proposals will not reduce emissions, the free market and innovation will.

“Between 1994 and 2017, the Earth lost 28 trillion metric tons of ice, the survey showed. That is an amount roughly equivalent to a sheet of ice 100 meters thick covering the state of Michigan or the entire U.K.—and the meltwater from so much ice loss has raised the sea level just over an inch or so world-wide, the scientists said.”
