Almost every climate scientist agree on that the accelerating climate changes we see today largely comes from human activities. Our consumption upset the natures balance and we can see climate changes with ever greater speed. if we don’t decrease our pollutions of greenhouse gas, there is no longer question whether we are facing a catastrophe, but how big it will be, how fast it will get here and what place it will effect the most. These pictures are worth more than a thousand words and I really hope that we can help each other sharing this. More people have to realize what is about to happen.
