Climate change is one of the biggest problems facing humans today. Temperatures have risen across the world by .13°F each decade since 1880, and that rise has only accelerated since 1981 to .32°F each decade. In fact, the top ten warmest years have all occurred since 1998, showing that the last twenty two years have shown no signs of slowing the climate change. Since the world round is being met with higher average temperatures than ever before, it has impacted other parts of our climate, such as the polar caps melting and our oceans rising.
With temperatures rising, ice masses melting and water levels rising around the world, we are tasked with the biggest obstacle of our lives, slowing and eventually stopping the negative trends in climate change. These negative trends have impacted us greatly already, with more destructive storms than ever before and disappearing beaches at our favorite spot on the Jersey Shore.
