In recent hours, NASA published on its website more than 500 photos obtained by satellite, which highlight the damage caused by climate change, showing the transformations and effects on planet earth.
In the images you can see an appreciation of the devastating impact of global warming on the retreat of glaciers, as well as the effects of floods, forest fires and urbanization.

He ice volume reached its all-time low 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 are seeing this decline, it is very likely that the Arctic summer sea ice will completely disappear this century,” says NASA scientist Joey Comiso.
