china, india and australia. but there is a push, a new one to address this issue as the effects of rising temperatures become evident from the deserts of africa to the glaciers of ben trreport >> reporter: so this is your office? >> it is. >> reporter: this is amazing. >> i love my office. >> reporter: i would too. we met glacierologist em jackson on top of one of her favorite places in the world. let's talk about this giant piece of ice we're standing on. what is this called. >> we're on the glacier, iceland's third largest glacier. and it flows right off of the icecap. >> reporter: that's the largest glacier mass in europe, more than half a mile thick in some parts. it is now dissolving before our eyes. how quickly is this melting? >> it's roughly around 450 feet per year. >> reporter: that whole expanse, was that all the glacier at one point? >> absolutely. everything between where we are and the north atlantic ocean,
3:42 am
that was all covered with ice. and that glacier is gone now. so if you want the know what the future looks like, just look right there. rr: acie now requie hike over dry land that just a few years ago was covered in ice. jackson, who lives in oregon, has been studying iceland's glaciers for more than a decade. what exactly is happening here on iceland? >> there is roughly 400 glaciers on this island, and the majority of them are melting at rates never before seen in human history. this island is losing its ice. every time i come back to this glacier, i don't believe my eyes, and i am watching them dissolve. i'm watching them die right in front of me. >> reporter: and to see that, she took us inside this ice cave. the pattern that the ice makes, it's so cool. to show us what is essentially the melting glacier's plumbing system. >> all that water has to go
3:43 am
somewhere, and it makes these tubes. so we see these tubes are bigger than they've ever been before to transport all that water. these tubes naturally happen. but the scale of them is unnatural. >> reporter: and that's because of human-caused climate change. ice all over the planet is rapidly melting. scientists say all that water rushing into the world's oceans is not only making sea levels rise, but could also be changing the ocean circulation and fueling more extreme weather events such as hurricanes and heatwaves. em jackson and her fellow researchers have launched a unique effort to bring attention to the very real possibility that iceland could lose nearly all of its ice in the next 100 years. >> driven to witness the ice before it's gone. >> reporter: they produced a short film called "after ice", using historical photos paired with new drone photos to show the rapid retreat of the island's glaciers.
3:44 am
>> what we are witnessing here is an event that we've never seen before. >> reporter: glacier reacher away when they see it? >> an idea of hope. an idea of resistance. it's sad to see all of this beauty being devastated. but we have to say i'm not going to allow this to continue indefinitely. >> reporter: iceland held a flash funeral back in 2019 after a 700-year-old sheet of ice shrunk so much, it was essentially declared dead by scientists. iceland has now lost so much ice that with less weight from the glaciers, the land is rising. that's making some harbors shallower and harder for boats to navigate. and scientists are also worried about more volcanic eruptions as the ground here becomes
3:45 am
increasingly unstable without glaciers holding it in place. are you going to find some icebergs? >> reporter: before we left, em jackson wanted us to see one more thing, this place she calls a glacial graveyard. >> this is broken down bits of glaciers that have been here for centuries. >> reporter: we paddled through a paradox. >> you are watching total collapse. >> reporter: a lagoon of beautiful destruction. so a couple of decades ago, could we have done this? could we have been paddling through here? >> not a couple of decades ago. when i first started my field work out here 12, 11 years ago, i walked from land to ice. but now i take a boat to get to these glaciers. the change is that quick. >> reporter: but she has not lost hope. she says we can still keep the planet from overheating and give the glaciers a chance to grow. >> we're losing ice, and we're going to lose a lot more ice. but that does not mean that ice is gone forever on the planet.
3:46 am
ice can grow back. but that m y havto act now. i want people to think about the future with ice. and that's what i fight for. >> reporter: ben tracy in iceland. spray, lift, skip, step. swipe, lift, spin, dry. slam, pan, still...fresh move, move, move, move aaaaand still fresh. degree. ultimate freshness activated when you move. clerk: hello, how can i? sore throat pain? ♪honey lemon♪ try vicks vapocool drops. in honey lemon chill. for fast-acting sore throat relief. wooo vaporize sore throat pain with vicks vapocool drops.
