World average temperature (°C)
Did you notice a change in the weather? Maybe it’s a little warmer where you are or suddenly you experience snow? What about the crazy storms hitting the tropical countries like Typhoon Yolanda? Climate change is real and it’s upon us. Global warming is not just a scare tactic.
