NEWS: The Polar ice caps are melting very fast, causing the sea level to rise by 3.4mm per year. Global temperatures have risen by 1.2 degree Celsius on average (with some places such as Canada recording an increase of 2°C already). Eighty percent (80%) of wildlife species have gone extinct since humans came into existence. All oceans and lakes are contaminated with microplastics ...
