Five years ago , Iceland officially lost its first glacier due to the rise in temperature caused by global warming, and a group of scientists decided to install a plaque alluding to Borgarfjoraur, where the defunct Okjökull glacier was located, whose nickname was “Ok”. The more than 400 glaciers in Iceland are losing 11 billion tons of water peryear. This memorial also includes the number “415 ppm”, a reference to the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere recorded in May 2019. This will have consequences in the rise of the sea water level, as well as in the adaptation to the life of the species that live there.
Let´s stop this. Together.
