Global Climate Change

The average earth’s temperature is getting warmer

Causes

The atmosphere is being ruined by Carbon Dioxide and methane gas. The emissions from fossil fuels ruin the atmosphere and the heat from the gasses gets trapped and drops back down to earth.

Consequences

  • glaciers are melting, less hunting ground for polar bears
  • polar ice caps are melting
  • drier and hotter- increase in deserts
  • sea levels are rising
  • New England is getting warmer
  • maple trees are dying
