The secret is out: US scientists monitoring shrinking glaciers in Washington and Alaska are warning that a major glacier meltdown is under way. Glaciers worldwide are melting faster than anyone had predicted they would, which will lead to rapidly rising ocean levels along the coasts. Major cities may drown, and since this news is so sudden and unexpected, many of them will be caught unawares.
On CNN, Shelby Lin Erdman quotes USGS climate researcher Edward Josberger as saying, "These changes are taking place in Washington State and Alaska in three different climate regimes, so we feel it's definitely something going on, probably on a global scale, and of course, if you look at other such measurements around the world and put it all together, yes, glaciers are retreating and retreating rapidly."
