Some climate change statistics: Average global temperature has increased by 1.8°F; Carbon Dioxide has gone up 409 parts-per-million; Sea levels are rising at 3.2 mm per year. These may seem like tiny changes, but the results can be catastrophic, simply because we are altering the planet’s basic temperature level necessary for survival of life! By excessive use of fossil fuels, we are contributing to changing the balance of gases in the Earth’s protective thermal blanket.
The results are already painfully visible: this infographic’s facts and figures highlight the far-reaching effects of climate change on human health.
