Facts on Rising Temperature

- The average global temperature has increased by 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880.

- By the year 2100, the Earth's average temperature is estimated to rise to anywhere from 4 to 12 degrees Celsius.

- The causes of rising temperatures is because we are burning coal, oil, and natural gas which adds carbon dioxide to the air.

- With the Earth’s temperature rising humans are cutting down forests which they take in the carbon dioxide and release oxygen, so there is more carbon dioxide in the air now.

- Some effects of the rise of temperature is flooding because the arctic is melting.

- Another effect is that the ocean is getting warmer which leads to more coral bleaching.

Facts on Rising Tempurature

- More effect on rising temperature is there are more dangerous hurricanes and tropical storms.

- Rising temperatures cause drought, which in return causes crops to go without water and die.

- Rising heat also causes creeks and streams and streams to go dry, leaving fish and other freshwater animals to lose their homes.

- Also plants and animals will go extinct because they have to migrate to somewhere else which there could be more predators or into human civilization.

- High temperatures damage wetlands, which protect shores from flooding.

- One last reason is the season spring is coming early because of temperature rising.
