Climate experts around the world are warning us about the danger of our Earth’s temperature climbing higher each year. Two degrees Celsius is the number they’ve given us as the point of no return. Scientists expect in a post-2-degree world we would experience an increase in extreme weather; animals and plants will be at a higher risk of extinction; the Arctic will keep melting; crop yields will decrease; and freshwater will decline. Yet, roughly 40% of the population doesn’t believe in climate change, with many of those believing it’s a hoax.
