Save Your Globe!

The entire species of
 Aldabra banded snail died
out after warmer weather
cut off the rainfall in its habitat!

The pine beetle, which feeds on

pine trees spread through
an area as big as
Ireland, and killed off
entire Canadian forest
within a year! The beetles
Have been present in
these forest for thousands of
years, but their
population was checked
by the winter cold!

If all the ice in Antarctic
melts, sea level rise about 61 metres!

22% of world’s carbon emissions
is produced by 5% of the
World’s population.

Humans are pouring carbon
dioxide into the atmosphere
much faster than plants and
oceans can absorb it. 

1 percent of India’s land
area of solar power could

meet all its electricity needs.
