Κλιματική αλλαγή και μουσειακές συλλογές

Φωτογραφία εξωφύλλου κλιματικής αλλαγής

Η αλλαγή του κλίματος του πλανήτη μας, έχει επιπτώσεις που υπερβαίνουν κατά πολύ τις δραματικές επιπτώσεις των καταιγίδων και την αύξηση της στάθμης των θαλασσών, τις αλλαγές στα πρότυπα μετανάστευσης (αποδημητισμού) και επαναπατρισμού, ή τη πιθανότητα για αυξημένους κινδύνους υγείας από τους ατμοσφαιρικούς ρύπους. Οι καιρικές συνθήκες και οι μεταβολές της θερμοκρασίας επίσης επηρεάζουν τη μακροχρόνια διαφύλαξη των πολιτιστικών θησαυρών του κόσμου που θαυμάζουμε και που μας εμπνέουν κάθε μέρα.

Weather patterns and temperature variations also affect the long term preservation of the world’s cultural treasures which we enjoy and which inspire us every day.
