“Water, water everywhere not a drop to drink”

The world is crying for water but  there is water at the wrong place.

Summer has caused for ‘ice shelves’ as they are called to melt in the Antarctica region creating as many as 65,000 lakes. The  floating ‘ice shelves’  some taller that the high rise buildings have melted creating lakes in depressions around, each of the size of a normal swimming pool.  There is one that is reported to be  around 27 square miles. What does this augur for the world at large is a question that is worrying scientists.

Could this be the reason for floods that we see around?
