What will the world be like without Antarctica?

As talks about cutting down green house gas emissions appear so unpalatable to the ears of world powers today,I keep wondering whether these super powers care to see documentaries on Antarctica! This snow desert is slowly responding to the high rise in world temperatures-the ice is melting away and exposing the bare rocks, where will the ice water go if all these blocks of ice become water, does this worry anybody?

Antarctica is a continent, so it's hardly going to melt. As to dramatic pictures of ice floes collapsing into the sea - this is an annual event, it happens during the spring thaw. The ice will reform when the weather gets cold again. The "news" media just put those shots in for effect, they don't mean anything.

If Antarctica is disappeared from the map, many countries near sea will submerged. Sea level will increase. Temperature will also increase. Which will affect the mankind, animal, jungle etc. Antarctica has major role in maintain the world's temperature and sea water level. Though it has starting melting but in slow speed, one day it will disappear it is true. We are adding to cut the green house gas emissions.
