Earth’s climate has always been in a state of constant change, with periodic fluctuations of global temperatures and geo-zones.
However, the current period of change that we are experiencing today is occurring more rapidly than any past events in geological history. It is evident by the observation of concrete evidence that humanity is responsible for the majority of the last century’s warming by our excessive release of heat-trapping gasses – also known as greenhouse gases.
Greenhouse gases are produced to power our modern lives, through burning fossil fuels, agriculture and land-use – which ultimately drives climate change. We are now seeing record-level greenhouse gas levels in the last 800,000 years. This sudden rise is a significant problem because the climate is now changing faster than living beings are able to adapt for.
We are already beginning to see the growing consequences of climate change in the form of:
