Global warming is reducing the area of the Earth's surface covered with snow and glaciers.
Which statement BEST describes the impact of this reduction?
Earth's albedo will increase and more solar energy will be reflected back into space.
Earth's albedo will decrease and the rate of climate change will increase.
The loss of cold environments will increase the rate of climate change.
Greenhouse gases trapped in the snow and glaciers will be released when they melt and intensify climate change.
This will cause a negative feedback loop for global temperatures.
