Polar ice melt 'accelerating'

Glaciers and icebergs are believed to be melting at the fastest rate recorded in decades.

    A group of scientists has discovered that polar ice is melting three times faster than it was twenty years ago.

    More than 20 polar research teams that have been studying ice in Greenland and Antarctica say the melting is already causing sea levels to rise.

    Al Jazeera's Emma Hayward reports.
