We all know the global warming is a fact, but what most people don’t know is that “dirty snow” is a crucial contributor to global warming. Researchers have measured how snowy landscapes tainted by carbon particles created from inefficiently burned fuels, vehicles’ emissions and forest fires are absorbing more of the sun’s heat than the less sooty snow normally found in the arctic. Findings also indicate dirty snow is responsible for at least 20% of global warming.
Meltain is an eraser to remind us how significant effect dirty snow is on the melting arctic regions. To alleviate global warming is everyone’s duty; cutting down carbon emissions as well as using environmental-friendly energy can all lighten the color of snow and slow down the speed of global warming to normal levels.
