News about global warming - is no longer a sensation. According to the calculations of climatologists, the last touches today about 70% of our planet, and the temperature of the upper layers of the ocean now 1 and 3 ° C higher than in the XX century and it continues to grow. Due to the increase in temperature melting glaciers; It is increasing the acidity of water that now makes most representatives of various food chains to change their familiar surroundings; significantly deteriorated coral reefs.

Average Eyes to track long-term changes is almost impossible, but in the photos before and after the whole process of change appears in his terrifying inevitability.

There is a probability that by the 2020-2030 year will melt, and they are. The melting of glaciers is one of the most powerful effects of climate change that can drastically change a particular ecosystem.

Another example: in Antarctica for 13 years appeared around 8000 blue freshwater lakes. All this - the melt water, the result is the same melting glaciers. The growth of these lakes are also directly related to the increase in the overall temperature of the planet.

These are just two examples of consequences of global warming, but in fact there are hundreds, if not thousands. "My Planet" publishes the most vivid pictures that say that is slowly but surely changing the face of our planet - and not for the better.
