Last Time the Globe Warmed

Climate change includes both global warming driven by human-induced emissions of greenhouse gases and the resulting large-scale shifts in weather leads to more frequent and intense drought, storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, melting glaciers and warming oceans

Causes for rising emissions

  • Burning coal, oil and gas produces carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide.
  • Deforestation
  • Increasing livestock farming
  • Fertilisers containing nitrogen produce nitrous oxide emissions.
  • Fluorinated gases are emitted from equipment and products that use these gases.
