Experts on climate change
Climate change is a significant global environmental issue that is caused by human activities, such as burning fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial processes, which release large amounts of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, leading to a warming trend. This warming trend can cause changes in climate patterns, leading to more extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and the loss of habitats for many species.
There is growing concern about the impacts of climate change on human societies and the natural world, leading to increased efforts to mitigate and adapt to these changes. This includes efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, transition to renewable energy sources, and develop strategies to help people and ecosystems cope with the impacts of climate change.
