Gorgeous Great Barrier reef in Australia has been ever considered one of the most diverse biosphere areas in the world. Great Barrier reef that stretches 2,600 km, is a living place for many small creatures.



The acidified process and rising temperatures due to climate change is the biggest threat to reefs. Warming water temperatures cause corals to turn white and have risks to die gradually. The disappearance of coral reefs also impact negatively on the ecosystem of the ocean.


Danube is the second longest river in Europe. Danube river is considered the gateway to trade and support industrial development, fishing, agriculture.


In the period 2011 - 2012, under the impact of climate change, a prolonged drought caused the water level of the Danube river to be cut a record level. The river water receded to cause many ships to be beached and paralyzed waterway activities.

The concentration of C02 in the atmosphere in July, 2003. The red spots represent areas where have C02 gas concentrations at 380 ppm (380/1 million units).


Photo had been taken 4 years later, the area appeared more red, indicating the amount of C02 emitted globally more and more.
