Global Warming

Key factsGlobal warming is the increase in Earth's temperature, due to increased levels of CO2, Chloroflourocarbons, and other pollutants in the atmosphere.

The rapid increase in global warming can be attributed to human causes. If policy surrounding CO2 emissions is not implemented globally in the near future, the Earth's surface temperature will rise between 2 and 6 degrees Celsius, causing many environmental disasters. With a severe increase in temperature comes a mass extinction.

About current situation

Global Environmental Disasters-Glacial ice sheet melting leads to sea level rise, acidic oceans, and loss of species -A dramatic increase in species extinction is becoming prevelant-Torrential weather (tornadoes, severe storms, hurricanes, etc.) increase-Drought is causing food shortage

Save the Earth
