If there were no the Earth’s atmosphere, which transmits sunlight like a greenhouse but keeps the Earth surface warm, the sunlight, reflected by the Earth’s surface, would instantly fade in the space. Gases accumulated in the atmosphere trap the heat given out by the Earth and cause the so-called greenhouse effect.

The melting of polar ice caps, retreat of mountain glaciers, rising sea level, storms, floods, dry years, heat waves, and shortage of drinking water can be named as the consequences of climate change.In order to stop climate change, it is necessary to reduce the emission of gases contributing to the greenhouse effect.Postage stamps under the topic "Preserve the Polar Regions and Glaciers" dedicated to the problem of climate change will be issued in January–March by some tens countries.
