Let’s go to Alaska to take a look at the consequences of global warming on the glaciers.

Over the last two centuries, different photographers have taken pictures of the same glaciers to see if their size would increase or decrease.

The final result will send shivers down your spine! In fact, in under a hundred years, some glaciers have almost completely vanished!

Judge for yourself with the following pictures!
