 Climate Change 

 

SPOTLIGHT

The science behind global warming and climate change is not new; the link between increasing levels of carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere and global warming was first discovered by John Tyndall in the mid-1800s.

Today, scientists widely agree that global climate change is already causing major environmental effects, such as changes in the frequency and intensity of precipitation, droughts, heat waves and wildfires; rising sea level; water shortages in arid regions; new and larger pest outbreaks afflicting crops and forests; and expanding ranges for tropical pathogens that cause human illness.
