- We Are To Blame
Several factors may contribute to global warming and climate change, but most experts agree that human activity and gas emissions are to blame. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a group of 1,300 independent scientific experts from countries all over the world under the auspices of the United Nations, “there’s a more than 90 percent probability that human activities over the past 50 years have warmed our planet.” 90 percent! The burning of fossil fuels such as coal and oil has led to a major increase in the levels of carbon dioxide in our atmosphere over the years, and this increase in greenhouse gases has caused earth to become warmer than ever before.
- Our Future In At Risk
The effects of climate change might not impact your daily life today, but in the future, we could be in big trouble. Scientific reports suggest that in just 25-30 years coastal flooding may become more frequent and more harmful, hurricanes may increase in intensity and danger, temperatures will continue to rise, natural ecosystems will be threatened, and human and animal life could suffer.
- There Is More Carbon Dioxide In Our Atmosphere Today Than There Has Been In The Past 800,000 Years Of This Planet
Think about that. This planet is been around for hundreds of thousands of years, and today, thanks to human activity like the burning of fossil fuels, there is more CO2 in our air than ever before. EVER BEFORE.
