The planet’s temperature is rising!
For more than 150 years, temperatures around the globe have been increasing, with more than half of that increase occurring within the recent 30 years. This pattern is unmistakable and will continue to take place if no measures are in place to help reduce the effects of global warming or in fact eliminate/reduce all practices that lead to global warming.
We are responsible for Global Warming.
These maps show temperatures across the world in the 1880s (left) and the 1980s (right), as compared to average temperatures from 1951 to 1980. This difference from average is called an anomaly. The map on the left shows that it was colder in the 1880’s in most places.
