Millions of lives at risk Krivoy Rog!

Raising the temperature on the planet less than two degrees Celsius could lead to a complete melting of the Greenland ice sheet and Arctic sea ice.

According to a new study by the World Wildlife Fund, the melting of Arctic sea ice may be hanging at the temperature on the planet less than two degrees. This will cause damage to ecosystems in the region. The disappearance of the Greenland ice sheet could lead to an increase in global sea level by seven meters.

"As a result, sea levels will rise by several meters, which would jeopardize the lives of millions of people" – quoted excerpts from the report of the agency France Presse.

According to Kim Carstensen, head of the "Global Climate Initiative" fund "responsible politicians can not lose a second and postpone drafting a new treaty on climate change in light of the nature of this warning."
