Scientists find a lot of reasons of this phenomenon that lead to climatic reconstruction. Melting glaciers and reducing the intensity of the magnetic field of the Earth lead to irreversible consequences.
To draw attention to climate change the International Bureau of the Universal Postal Union offered to issue postage stamps on the theme Preservation of the poles and glaciers.
