The article focuses on the problem of global warming. The rapid accumulation of global-warming pollution in the Earth's atmosphere is now confronting human civilization with a crisis like no other we have ever encountered. The climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is a true planetary emergency. Global warming melts the floating ice cap that covers the Arctic Ocean. The North Polar cap helps to cool the planet.
