What if all the world’s ice melted?

Around 5.8 million square miles of our planet is covered with ice if all of it melt overnight the global sea level would rise approximately 230 feet that’s enough to cover London’s tower bridge. All seven continents would be partially underwater there will be no Miami no London.The coast of Australia would be washed out, along with 80 of it’s residents. So would Venice and the Netherlands. Things wouldn’t be that bad for Africa But with the extreme heat waves that followed, most of the continents would be inhabitable. Think flood would wash out humanity entirely? Well but not all of it. But whoever is left would have plenty of dangers to deal with. All that melted ice would release carbon dioxide to the air. Ice need CO2 concentration to melt in the first place. Given that oxygen content in the atmosphere would remain the same, you would slowly choke from breathing the air. You would have very little time to acclimatize to the new world.Ocean currents would change their direction, affecting sea life. With no time to evolve such extreme changes, sea creatures and polar animals would face massive extinction. The one still alive would have to leave their homes and find better place to live. This would result in a decrease of human food supply.A change in sea current would also mean dramatic weather changes. Heavy rains would hit the deserts, and areas with significant rainfall would dry out. This would devastate agriculture, and cause a global famine. Wind patterns would change, too. with no ice to reflect sun’s rays the sun would draw more moisture from the oceans, making more clouds in the sky. The would gather first near the mountain areas, and eventually rainfall would flood theme. Oceanic hurricanes would occur more often, causing even more floods. Even the smallest earthquake off the coast could devastate nearby regions with a massive tsunami. All of this would force a global migration that governments would not be able to deal with.The world as we know it collapse. Luckily, all the ice can’t melt overnight, but it is melting.even the oldest ice core, that has been storing information about earth’s climate for 1.5 million years. if we keep adding fuel to the climate change fire, in 5,000 years the earth will be ice free.
