The 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference is being held in Paris, France from 30th November to 11th December 2015. The objective of the conference is to reach up to a universal legally binding agreement and signed by all the nations of the world. The protocol in this agreement will be implemented in the year 2020. The agreement aims to limit global warming by 2 degree Celsius by 2100.
This Climate Change conference is important because world is witnessing natural calamities more than ever before! National Geographic showed us in 2013, sea levels would rise by 216 feet if all the land ice on the planet were to melt. This would dramatically reshape the continents and drown many of the world’s major cities.
What will earth look like if its ice melts? A video by Business Insider Science has tried to show us. European cities like Brussels and Venice will be underwater.
If we act now and start taking care of our environment we can avoid this. This video really pushes us towards more carpooling and planting more and more trees.
Check out the video.
