Greenland and Antarctica losing ice six times faster

Due to the warming conditions, Greenland and Antarctica are losing ice six times faster than they n the 1990s. 

It was reviewed by experts through observational spacecraft over nearly three decades. Greenland and Antarctica lost 6.4 trillion tonnes of ice in the period from 1992 to 2017. 

The ice sheets contribute about a third of all sea-level rise which is big problem for coastal flooding and erosion.
