To draw attention to climate change the International Bureau of the Universal Postal Union offered to issue postage stamps on the theme “Preservation of the poles and glaciers”. Ministry of Communications and Information of the Republic of Belarus supported the project and issued two postage stamps.
The coupons of the both small sheets reflect such environmental problems as air pollution, greenhouse effect, melting of glaciers which are caused by human activity.
Recently the Earth’s climate is changing quite rapidly in the direction of global warming. Scientists find a lot of reasons of this phenomenon that lead to climatic reconstruction. Melting glaciers and reducing the intensity of the magnetic field of the Earth lead to irreversible consequences.
