Elements of climate change

The temperature of the earth’s surface has risen 0.74 degrees Celsius in the past 100 years. This increase may not seem much, but this warming has been sufficient to disrupt many of the planet’s ecosystems to pose significant risks to human well-being. More importantly, if recent trends continue or accelerate as many climate scientists predict, the earth’s temperature may rise another four to six degrees by 2100, with likely catastrophic effect on the environment, habitats, economies and people.
