¿Did you know that 75% of the Arctic has melted away?
This design empowers you to create awareness about a problem rarely seen on media. ¿What will we face as the Arctic keeps melting down?
Scientists foresee an increase of the sea level and serious consequences for marine ecosystems as well as variations of the atmospheric circulation that could cause heavy storms and adverse climate phenomena. Actually, submarine landslides caused by ice melting lead to earthquakes and tsunamis.
Arctic melts downs two times faster than the rest of the world. This alarming fact makes the Arctic Ocean more accessible to destructive activities such as oil extraction or trawling. Given its key role to the earth functioning, the protection of the Arctic is an urgent matter.
