NASA has on its website a series of more than 500 photos satellite captures that show how climate change is changing and impacting our planet.Area covered by ice in the Arctic Ocean in 1984 (left) and in 2012 (NASA).
The ice-covered area of the Arctic Ocean increases during the winter and retreats during the summer, usually reaching its lowest point of the year in September, reported RT.
The amount of ice has arrived under its history in 2012, since at least 1979, when the first reliable satellite measurements began, according to NASA.
The 2016 low was the second lowest on record. “At the rate we’re seeing this decline, it’s likely that the Arctic summer sea ice will will disappear completely in this century”said Joey Comiso, NASA scientist and reproduced RT.

The world is being destroyed
The Neumayer Glacier, located on the east coast of San Pedro Island or South Georgia, is located east of the southern tip of South America, retreated more than 4 kilometers for the last 16 years.
Small changes in sea temperature have a large effect on the rate at which it melts.

These photos from Shanghai show the trend of urbanization in the last four decades. Its population doubled, from 12 million in 1982 to 24 million in 2016.
As satellite images show, the city’s area, which covered 308 square kilometers in 1984, has expanded to It covers 1,302 square kilometers in 2014, he said RT.
