The sea of ice is a glacier situaded in Chamonix which measures 7 km and 200 m deep.It’s the most important glacier of France.
In the past During the XIX-XXth century, the glacier was deeper and longer than today. We could cross the sea of ice to go to Montrevers.
PROBLEMS! 1) The shrinkage of the sea of ice: The sea of ice is melting because of the pollution and the global warming .
It loses 130m of ice per year and it doesn’t snow enough to make the glacier as long as before.
<ul><li>Because of the pollution too, the snow and the ice of the sea of ice is dirty. </li></ul>
2) The consequences : The glacier runs down. The direct consequence is that EDF (electricity of France) must review the site to capture water from melting ice to supply hydroelectric power stations .
Ideas to resolve these problems? <ul><li>These problems are the direct consequences of global warming and pollution: </li></ul><ul><li>The only sollution is to reduce greenhouse gases. </li></ul>
In the future <ul><li>If the greenhouse effect increases, the sea of ice won’t exist anymore because it would have melted. </li></ul>
