Scientists have warned that the Thwaites Glacier, commonly known as the “doomsday glacier,” may be on the verge of collapsing due to warming ocean temperatures. The glacier, which is located in western Antarctica and is roughly the size of Gujarat, has already lost approximately 760 billion tonnes of ice over the past few years, and its collapse could result in a catastrophic rise in global sea levels. However, the exact timeframe for the collapse remains uncertain. Experts are calling for urgent action to mitigate the effects of climate change and prevent further warming of the oceans.
