Climate change


Carbon dioxide emissions are continuing to rise globally due to the burning of fossil fuels and changes in land use. If concentration of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere (including carbon dioxide) continues to rise, the temperatures in the world will rise as well. It is a widely accepted notion that if temperatures rise by more than two degrees celsius from pre-industrial levels, massive species extinctions and dramatic changes in ecosystems will result with severe consequences for human wellbeing.
