Welcome, it's time for the 'World Now'. Bringing you some of the most interesting news from around the globe, I'm Eum Ji-young.
Amid scorching heat in the city, the effects of global warming have materialized in London, through an ice racing car.
A life-size ice replica of an Envision Virgin Racing Formula E car on display, was left melting very fast.
The 'Melting Point' event was organized to raise awareness of climate change by exposing an ice sculpture to London's heat for a day.

"What we've done is put 594 gallons-worth of ice in the form of one of our beautiful Envision Virgin Racing cars and we've asked the public to take a guess at how fast and how much of it will melt in a 24-hour period of time."

The company said for every guess,it will donate one U.S. dollar to the Arctic Ice Project, a non-profit organization that takes action against climate change and aims to restore ice in the Arctic.
