Climate crisis: Massive hole opens up under Antarctic glacier which could lead to catastrophic sea level rises

Thwaites glacier is known as Doomsday: if it collapses, sea surge would submerge major cities across globe

A massive hole has been discovered in the Antarctic’s so-called doomsday glacier suggesting it may be melting even faster than scientists have long feared.

The massive Thwaites ridge would send sea levels surging by up to two feet if it dissolved completely – enough to submerge major coastal cities across the globe.
