The Earth is warming up and there is now overwhelming scientific consensus happening. There is a high chance of diminishing ecosystem which directly affects the habitat of the planet.
The most burning issue is the melting of snow from the polar belt. Droughts are intensifying, and oceans are acidifying with methane plumes rising up from the ocean floor. The edges of the vast snowy area are fragmented and started floating into the Pacific Ocean, Antarctic Ocean.
If it rapidly continues at the same pace, the ocean water may rise in a big volume which can end up in a great disaster. Now the time has come to seriously think about the issue otherwise it may result in the extinction of living creatures, like how dinosaurs disappeared from the earth.
