Global Warming

Is it hot in here? The earth's temperature has risen one degree Fahrenheit over the past century, and the increase has accelerated over the past two decades, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. It's pretty clear that most of the recent warming is attributable to human activities.

So what's wrong with having summer year-round? A lot, actually. Over time, a climate that's even a few degrees warmer can affect rainfall, sea levels, and air quality. It might cause droughts in some areas and flooding in others. Some parts of the world, particularly hotter climates, are likely to be more affected than other areas. This may have significant impact on plants, wildlife, and humans. When climates change rapidly, ecosystems often can't adjust quickly enough to survive.

Fortunately, there are many things we can do to slow global warming. Simple steps like carpooling and turning off lights can reduce amounts of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. Even shopping (for energy saving products!) can help save the planet. Find other ways to help today.
