Only us science men can reverse this. Please send me as much money as you can spare. I'll make sure you don't get squashed too.
Melting ice is causing the ocean to sink, worrying new study reports
Now, geoscientist Thomas Frederikse from the Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands and his colleagues report that the meltwater is adding extra weight to the seafloor,
We tend to think of the Earth as a firm, unchangeable sphere. But geologically, our planet is a very dynamic place.
“The Earth itself is not a rigid sphere, it’s a deforming ball,” Frederikse said. “With climate change, we do not only change temperature.”
Researchers had known that extra weight could cause the Earth to become squashed, but they wanted to know how much it could be squashed — and this is where the surprises started.
