Glaciers in Antarctica melting

The climate change in Antarctica is melting glaciers there which will change all of the oceans connected to it. Since 2009 and 2014 glaciers have distributed 80 trillion gallons into the ocean. If the glaciers were completely melted it would raise the water levels by 14 inches. Glaciers are shrinking 13 feet per year due to global warming and climate changes around the world. The glaciers are also melting because the ozone layer is dissipating so the sun rays are hotter than usual in that area in the world because of pollution.

Nick Vujicic and Gandhi

Nick Vujicic and Gandhi are different because they both said inspirational speeches but had different speeches for those causes. Nick did this because he didn't want what happened to him to happen to someone else so he said what he said. Gandhi did this because he wanted his country to be free and independent from the British that was controlling them. Nick was inspired because he knew that he wasn't the only one that had a disability that was getting bullied. He inspired people to understand and feel empathy for them. Gandhi was inspired because he was given equal right as the British had so he inspired Indian's to fight back but to fight back by using peaceful protests.
