Global sea levels to rise drastically by 2100 due to Greenland, Antarctica's melting ice sheets

Calculating the Antarctic sheet was trickier as the East Antarctic ice sheet can gain mass due to global warming, as warmer temperatures cause increased snowfall.

Glacial ice on Italy's Alps turns a shade of pink due to algae, leads to concerns of melting

Normally ice reflects more than 80 percent of the sun's radiation, however, because the algae absorb the heat and the ice starts to melt faster.
