The way we live is causing this rapid change in our climate. Learn about how the industries and processes we rely on are the main source of greenhouse-gas emissions, which are causing an increase in the Earth's temperature, and consequent alterations in weather patterns.
Greenhouse gases already emitted into the atmosphere mean that further climate change is unavoidable, regardless of future emissions. However, we need to reduce our greenhouse-gas emissions to prevent even more climate change.
We also need to prepare for the climate change that we cannot avoid because of our previous emissions, which have set us on course for a changing climate.
