IN THE NEAR FUTURE, AROUND A HUNDRED MILLION
PEOPLE WILL SEE THE SEA LEVEL RISE BY 3FT
THE MONTANA GLACIER NATIONAL PARK NOW ONLY
HAS ABOUT 30% OF ITS TOTAL GLACIERS FROM 1910.
Of the 150 glaciers featured in the Montana Glacier National Park in 1910,
only 25 were able to survive. This is just one of the few glacier parks in
the world that suffers because of the continued increase in the earth’s
THE AVERAGE TEMPERATURE IN THREE LARGE
COUNTRIES HAS INCREASED BY TWO TIMES THE
A report from the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment that was compiled
from 2000 to 2004 revealed that the average temperature in Russia,
Western Canada and Alaska have all increased by twice
the global average.
THERE WILL BE AN INCREASE OF 7 TO 23 INCHES IN
SEA LEVELS BY THE END OF THE CENTURY.
A report from the IPCC in 2007 revealed that by the time we reach the
end of this century, sea levels would have already risen by 7 to 23 inches
because of global warming.
THE UNITED STATES IS THE TOP GLOBAL
WARMING POLLUTER IN THE WORLD.
It is ironic that despite the United States only making up 5% of the total
population of the world, it has been ranked no. 1 among giant countries
considered to be global warming polluters.
The US contributes 25% of total emissions.
BY 2050, 15 TO 37% OF OUR PLANT AND ANIMAL
SPECIES COULD BE WIPED OUT.
Humans are not the only ones who suffer from global warming.
Even plant and animal species do. It is projected that by the time
we reach 2050, around 15 to 37% of all the existing plant and
animal species today would cease to exist.
OVER THE PAST CENTURY, THE SEA LEVEL
HAS RISEN BY 10 TO 20 CM.
Because of the continued increase of the near-surface temperature
of the earth, polar glaciers have also continued to melt, causing a
significant rise in our sea level. Over the past 100 years, the sea level
is said to have increased by 10 to 20 centimetres.
400,000 SQUARE MILES OF ARCTIC SEA HAVE
ALREADY MELTED DUE TO GLOBAL WARMING.
A study conducted by the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment revealed
that since ancient times, there have been around 400,000 square
miles of the Arctic Sea that have already melted because of the increasing
temperature of the earth. This area is around half the state of Texas.
