The year 2017 turned out to be the hottest in the history of meteorological observations within the last 150 years. Additionally, some scientists believe that Europe and the USA will soon be covered with eternal cold. We don’t know how precise the predictions of scientists are, but we know for sure that we haven’t brought much good to our planet so far.

Experts define nature’s “mood swings” as a nervous climate. The main reason for such atypical behavior is the overheating of Arctica, causing Greenland’s ice sheets to disappear rapidly. It is happening 2 times faster now than it was 10 years ago.

We at GIGGAG have collected a list of official facts showing nature’s most current “bad mood”. And in this case, only humans are to blame.

A huge Oil Spot Has Formed As a result Of an explosion Of an oil Platform In 2010.

Every year, more than 12 million tons of oil get dumped into the world’s oceans. It happens due to the leakage of oil from damaged wells and tankers. About 25% of seawater is covered with a layer of oil varying in thickness. In 2010, an explosion of The Deepwater Horizon oil platform resulted in the leakage of 1000 tons of oil into the ocean. The British Petroleum company has spent billions of dollars to eliminate the substance but despite all efforts, they could only remove 75% of the combustible substance.

260 million tons of plastic debris get into the ocean annually, resulting in the formation of huge plastic continents. The biggest one is located in the Pacific Ocean taking up 10% of its surface.
