IF ALL THE ICE MELTED, SOUTH AMERICA

more info |Nat Geo

The map here show the world as it is now, with only one difference: All the ice on land has melted and drained into the sea, raising it 65 m (216 feet) and creating new shorelines for our continents and inland seas.

There are more than five million cubic miles of ice on Earth, and some scientists say it would take more than 5,000 years to melt it all. If we continue adding carbon to the atmosphere, we’ll very likely create an ice-free planet, with an average temperature of perhaps 26°C (80° Fahrenheit)  instead of the current 14° C (58° F.)

The amazon basin in the north and the paraguay river basin in the south would become atlantic inlets, wiping out buenos aires, coastal uruguay and most of paraguay, Mountainous stretches would survive along the caribbean coast and in central america
