The effects are affecting every part of our world so preventing the dangers that global warming is causing the world, would be a benefit to you and everyone else. If you care for your own society, your own country and our Earth, you must take action and try planting a tree, driving a fuel-efficient car, Install a low-flow shower head because they reduce the CO2 level in our atmosphere.
