Global Warming for Kids

Global Warming

Global warming refers to an average increase in the Earth's temperature since the mid-twentieth century, which in turn causes changes in the climate. A warmer Earth may lead to a rise in the sea level, changes in rainfall patterns, and moderate to severe impacts on plants, wildlife and humans. Scientists believe Earth is currently facing a period of rapid warming due to human activities that lead to rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
