The truth about Climate Change

According to NASA, Greenland lost an average of 281 billion tonnes of ice per year between 1993 and 2016, whilst Antarctica lost about 119 billion tonnes between the same period. The Arctic Ocean is expected to become ice-free in summer before mid-century.

Since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, the acidity of surface ocean waters has increased by 30 per cent

Global sea levels rose by 8 inches in the last century. In the last two decades, sea levels have nearly doubled that of the last century. In July, an iceberg the size of Luxembourg broke off Antarctica's Larsen C Ice Shelf sending 5,800 square km of ice into the ocean​. 

By 2020, just 5 per cent of Australia's Great Barrier Reef will remain.

1.5 average rise in global temperatures may put 20-30 per cent of species at risk of extinction, according to WWF.

 

12 per cent of all global greenhouse gas emissionsare caused by deforestation

The planet's average surface temperature has risen about 1.62 degrees since the late 19th century. The World Health Organisation confirmed that 2017 was one of the threewarmest years on record.

According to the United Nations High Commissioner For Refugees21.5 million people have been forcibly displaced since 2008 due to climate change-related weather hazards.

54 million people will be exposed to flooding each year, up from 21 million in 2015, according to a study from the World Resources Institute

Since the industrial revolution began in 1750, CO2 levels have risen by more than 30 per cent and methane levels have risen more than 140 per cent.
