What is Global Warming?
The Earth is heating up. The rise in temperature is caused by humans. Burning fossil fuels releases greenhouse gases into the atmosphere that trap heat from the sun and raise surface and air temperatures. Anomalies in temperature and precipitation reflect the effect of global warming.
The service shows that the predominance of warmer months is indicative of global warming caused by global climate change.
Why does global warming matter?
From 1880 to 2012, the average temperature on Earth increased by 0.85 ° C. The temperature of the world's oceans has become higher, eternal snow and ice are melting. Industrial emissions, in addition to heating the atmosphere, harm human health. Extreme natural events - droughts, floods, hurricanes and fires - are increasingly occurring. They lead to destruction of infrastructure, hunger, lack of clean water.
Impacts of Global Warming
As the planet warms, extreme weather events such as heatwaves, floods, and droughts become more frequent and intense. Unfortunately, those who have contributed the least to climate change are affected the most. Without immediate action, the climate crisis could lead to widespread poverty, hunger and migration. The impacts of global warming include rising sea levels, regional changes in precipitation, more frequent extreme weather events such as heat waves and expansion of deserts.
