    warming. Human activities produces 75% of annual carbon dioxide emissions. Firstly ‚the greenhouse gases has caused temperatures to increase. Since 1861‚ the average temperature has increased by 0.6 Degree Celsius. Scientists believe that‚ by 2100. there would be a 4-6 Degree Celsius increase in temperature and a 5-9 centimeter sea level increase. As the temperature increases‚ ice bergs would start melting and homes of Polar Bears and Penguins will be destroyed. There will also be an increase
