What Could Happen If Climate Change Goes Unchecked


Climate change is a reality that isn't going anywhere. The level of greenhouse gas currently in the atmosphere is at an all time high. If temperatures continue to rise at the current rate, the planet could be in real trouble. Scientists across the board are in agreement that the negative impacts of climate change would present life threatening situations all over the world.

Seal levels are rising along with temperatures. This could result in crops dying and certain animal species going extinct. Choice that are made now will affect how much impact global warming will have. Cutting down on fossil fuel consumption, reducing waste and finding renewable energy sources will all have to be priorities for the next generation.
