Dominican Republic: New stamp on 'Preserve Polar Regions and Glaciers' theme

On the occasion of visiting Dominican Republic by Mr. Edouard Dayan, General Director of the Universal Postal Union (UPU) and Mrs. Serrana Bassini, Secretary General of the Postal Union of the Americas, Spain and Portugal (PUAEP), the Dominican Post jointly with the Official Philatelic Committee have issued a postage stamp calling attention to the preservation of glaciers and poles, answering on the UPU's invitation to all governments for inclusion in their annual program of an issue with this theme. By the way, Post Offices of many countries took this initiative to participate in the Postal series called International Polar Year.

Every year the consequences of the influence of human actions on the planet take turn to the worse, and specifically those that affect the temperature rising, because of the effect of gaseous pollutants such as CO2. The global warming would have serious effects on the planet if the great powers in general and any citizen of the world particularly wouldn't bring their bit to the arrest or elimination of this problem.

Measures such as limiting car use, reducing fuel consumption, buying more efficient appliances, turning off light bulbs are health measures that everyone can apply.
