Global warming is rapidly increasing every day. It isn’t out of control, but it could soon be. Warnings signs are all around us, Floods, Typhoons, Tornadoes, and Earthquakes. These are all challenges of Global Warming. Imagine if Global Warming accelerates, where would the next catastrophes hit? Scientists around the world agree that we live in a world warmer by almost one full degree. Tracking the vital signs of earth is an armada, from seas, land, and even satellites in outer space.

In Australia, forest fires are a natural phenomenon. Making Australia the continent with the worst drought. Even a six degree shift in temperature can result into a very catastrophic event. If the world is warmer by one degree, hurricanes will begin to hit the South Atlantic. If temperature increases by two degrees, the Pacific islands will be underwater due to the increasing level of water. Polar bears will have a hard time looking for a place to live because icebergs will be melting more and more every day as the temperature increases.

At three degrees, Icecaps at the Alps will be gone. The Mediterranean and parts of Europe will wither in searing summer heat.
