A Giant Ice Cube Shows Us How Severely the Earth is Losing Ice

If the magnitude of climate change is hard for you to imagine, picture a giant ice cube, to scale, sitting next to an image of New York City. To get a sense of how big that is, imagine this ice cube is a 6-mile block. This analogy represents the amount of ice melting from the earth on average every year since the 1990s. Sea ice is also melting, although this doesn’t contribute as severely to sea levels rising as glacier-loss does. I wonder if the giant ice cube metaphor is just the start of a trend of creative awareness campaigns about climate change.
