Climate change or global warming is an increase in the average global temperature. Human activity and natural causes are believed to be contributing to the increase in global temperature. The primary cause of the rise in temperature is the increase in greenhouse gases such as Carbon Dioxide. Human activity is clear to be causing most of the warming by releasing heat-trapped gases into the atmosphere. This research seeks to identify what is causing climate change, who is causing it, what are some ways we can stop it from getting worse, what will happen if we don’t do anything to stop it, and how the COVID-19 pandemic could help with climate change.
