NAME PROFESSOR COURSE DATE Combating Global Climate Change Although once only considered speculation, global climate change is now accepted by the larger scientific community as fact. It is estimated that if no interventions are implemented that the average temperature of the earth’s surface will increase by 1.8 to 4.0 degrees Celsius by 2100 (United Nations). Although this change in temperature seems small, it would have a massive and devastating impact on the flora and fauna of earth. Global climate change is also predicted to cause rising sea levels that would damage human settlements, reductions in agricultural crop yields, increased stresses on water resources, and increase the spread of diseases, especially those carried by insect...The end:
