Recently the rise in global temperature is melting glaciers at a faster rate today as compared to the previous decades. The rapid rise in the melting rate is so great that many glaciers have completely vanished from the earth over the past few decades.

According to national geographic, the speed rate at which glaciers melt, in the Arctic, seem to suggest that the arctic would become ice free by the summer 2030 if global warming continues at that rate.
NASA stated that Greenland is also one of those affected by global warming and is losing about 100 billion tons of ice land every year.
