What Would Happen If We Burned All The Fossil Fuels On Earth?
“A new study published today in Science Advances finds that if we burn all of the remaining fossil fuels on Earth, almost all of the ice in Antarctica will melt, potentially causing sea levels to rise by as much as 200 feet–enough to drown most major cities in the world.”
Who’s Winning The Battle To Replace Coal?
