Conclusion

All these seemingly grand crisis and disasters can be prevented if we all work hard to invert this problem.

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. It is a benefit for your own self and your next generations so help the world prevent the problems that global warming is instigating. ...read more.
