The Impacts Of Climate Change In Our World

This video shows some of the changes that are already starting to happen in places like Africa, Asia and The Western United States. It would appear that drastic steps need to be taken to try and curb climate change or we could face some nasty consequences. The effects are being felt all over the world and things are only going to get worse if nothing is done...

This next clip shows us the beautiful O'Higgins Glacier in Chile, it is one of the faster retreating glaciers in the world! I think a lot of people aren't taking into consideration the fact that many countries throughout the world get much of their drinking water from glacier runoffs. This will bring up a huge problem as studies have shown that a whopping 90% of the world's glaciers are retreating!
