    Effects of global warming! Due to global warming, the average temperature of the Earth has now risen by 1.6 degrees Celsius. Thus the ice is melting faster. This causes the sea level to rise by 3.2 mm per year. Glaciers play an important role in reflecting heat from the sun into the atmosphere. As the ice melts, heat is...
