EUROPE

In the case of melting ice, according to scientists, the sea level on Earth will rise by around 65 metres. London, Venice, the Netherlands, Moldova and most of Denmark will disappear from the face of the earth. The Mediterranean, Black and Caspian seas will greatly increase in size.

ASIA

The territory which is now inhabited by 600 million Chinese will go under water, as the whole of Bangladesh and the solid part of India. The mountainous areas of Cambodia will turn into Islands.

NORTH AMERICA

The entire Atlantic coast will disappear under water, including the Gulf of Mexico, Florida and most of California.

SOUTH AMERICA

In Latin America, flood the Argentine capital Buenos Aires, coastal Uruguay and Paraguay. Will turn into sea the deltas of the Amazon and paranĂ¡.

AFRICA

In comparison with other continents, Africa would lose not so much territories. But rising temperatures will make most of it uninhabited. In Egypt as a result of increasing water level in the Mediterranean wetlands will be the ancient cities of Alexandria and Cairo.

AUSTRALIA

The continent, much of which is desert, will get an inland sea. But will lose much of the narrow coastal strip, where the now reside four out of five of all Australians.

ANTARCTICA

The Western part of Antarctica has melted almost completely and very quickly. Now this area is losing 65 million tons of ice per year.

The Eastern part of the continent contains 4/5 of all glaciers on earth. She’ll survive the first period of warming due to the large mass, but then starts to melt and it.
