How fast glaciers are melting

Since the middle of XIX-th century, glaciers on Earth began to melt at an incredible rate.They melted before. However, with each passing moment, this rate continues to increase.

It is possible to talk a lot about this problem, but sometimes it is much easier and clearer just to see it.
Today we offer you an interesting comparative selection of photos of glaciers from Alaska Peninsula. All this photos were made in an interval of a century or less.
After watching this photos we hope that you will understand the seriousness of this problem.
