You have seen many reports recently warning about the impact of global warming on Earth’s climate.

We are already seeing record high temperatures, greenhouse gas (GHG) levels, and rates of polar ice melting around the world.

The UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change estimates that we must reverse the increase in greenhouse gases (GHG) by 2020 and decrease them by 45% before 2030 to keep earth’s temperature rise to 1.5 degrees Celcius.
