Climate Change (Rising Concentrations)

In this article we will discuss Climate Change (Rising Concentrations)

The effect is that the atmosphere retains more of the Sun’s heat, warming the Earth’s surface. While the pattern of future warming is very much open to debate, it is indisputable that the surface of the Earth has warmed, on average, 0.3 to 0.6 °C since the late 19th century when reliable temperature measurements began. Under the existing scenarios of economic growth and development leading to greenhouse gas emissions, on a worldwide average, temperatures would rise by 1 to 3.5 °C by the year 2100, and global mean sea level
by about 15 to 95 cm.
