Global warming is an increase in the average temperature of the Earth's climate system. Each of the last three decades was warmer than the previous one, the air temperature was higher than in any previous decade, since 1850.
All this leads to a shift in climatic zones, causing melting of Arctic and Antarctic ice that leads to an increase in the level of the World Ocean. Hurry to see these incredible and unique places in their kind, until they are erased from the face of the Earth!
Great Barrier Reef
Rising ocean temperatures, water pollution, ocean acidification and cyclones permanently damage the reef and cause massive coral bleaching. That is why the reef is uniquely in danger.
Glacier National Park
A little more than 100 years ago, 150 glaciers were scattered all over the Glacier National Park in Montana. Now only 39 of them are left, and according to the predictions of scientists, these glaciers will disappear by 2030, if not earlier.
Acqua alta in Italian means "high water". The Venetians use this phrase to describe the tides that flood the city. Last century, the frequency of acqua alta was less than 10 times a year, today it happens already up to 60 times a year. Now the question becomes, how long can Venice remain above the water?
According to scientists, the desert grows about half a mile a month. In this scenario, this desertification can absorb the whole of North Africa, changing the continent's environment.
The Maldives in the Indian Ocean is the lowest situated country in the world. It is assumed that by 2100 a nation consisting of 1190 islands will feel a rise in sea level by 1.5 feet and will lose 77 percent of its land.
The land with untouched beauty, Patagonia in South America, can undergo drastic changes as a result of climate change. Most of the 50 glaciers in Patagonia disappear due to increased temperatures and reduced precipitation. And this is bad news for humans and animals since the South Patagonian ice sheet is the third largest freshwater reservoir in the world.
Located in the lowlands of the Ganges-Brahmaputra River, Bangladesh is at the epicenter of the process of changing climatic conditions. About 50 percent of the area will be flooded if the sea level rises at least one meter.
Global warming melts the Arctic twice as fast as the rest of the world, which means that such an authentic northern tundra in Alaska can completely disappear if the temperature continues to rise.
Like the Sahara in Africa, desertification also threatens South Australia. Australia is one of the twelve most biologically diverse countries in the world, but it is also one of the driest continents.
The European Alps are located at a lower altitude than the Rocky Mountains, and their glaciers and ski resorts are more exposed to global warming. It is assumed that glaciers known to the whole world will disappear by 2050.
