According to UN weather agency, a huge area of Arctic sea ice melted this year which indicates that climate is changing rapidly. More shockingly, the area of ice around the North Pole that melted was 11.8 million square kilometres from March to September this year, an area bigger than the United States!

A report by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) verified that the alarming rate of the ice melt this year highlighted the far-reaching changes taking place on Earth’s oceans and biosphere; and the Arctic ice melt was one of a myriad of extreme and record-breaking weather events to hit the planet in 2012.

Climate change is continuously taking place as a result of the concentrations of green house gases in the atmosphere, which have risen constantly and again reached new records that have finally led to global warming.

It has been long time since any proper measures have been taken to combat this situation. Global protests and more hands in this green movement is required in order to save our own Earth from this devastating situation.
