Can We Stop the Polar Ice Caps from Melting?

Answer

The polar ice caps are melting due to global warming due to green gas building up in the atmosphere and changing atmospheric patterns in the artic that cause the sea ice to move. This rate has been increasing over the years.
1 Additional Answer
The polar ice caps are melting because the temperature of the earth is rising. Also, the more ice that melts, the less light that is reflected back and the warmer the temperature becomes. However, the mere fact that we have polar ice caps means we are living in an ice age by definition.
