Unless we decrease emissions fast, the globe is expected to heat up by more than 2°C.
Rising temperature causes melting of glaciers and ice shield
Whenever the oceans warm up, they extend, causing sea levels to rise
Extreme weather occurrences are intensifying and becoming more common.
The carbon dioxide released by humans is absorbed by the oceans, causing ocean acidification
Salinity of the water bodies adversely impacts ocean currents
Heatwaves have been the worst worldwide weather danger in recent years
Rising sea levels increase the chance of floods by melting of glaciers and ice sheets
Changed rainfall pattern causes scanty rainfall in places resulting into serious drought
Climate change adversely affects the marine and terrestrial ecosystems, finally ends into loss of biodiversity
