The collapse of the western Antarctic ice sheet is “unstoppable” and will result in an “inevitable” sea level rise of as much as 13 feet, according to a new study published Monday.

Either way, it will virtually destroy places like New Jersey and Florida. A separate NASA study set to be published Monday confirmed the same inexorable end of the western Antarctic ice sheet.
