Global Warming Is Real

The arctic ice is receding and global warming is no longer a theory but a reality. Scientists predict that by the year 2100, the average surface temperature will jump up by 6 degrees Fahrenheit. Nighttime temperatures will be higher and there will be hotter days.

Since air temperature is a powerful component of climate, there will be unavoidable climate changes in the future. Some climate changes involve extreme weather disturbances such as more severe hurricanes and longer droughts. There will be an increased precipitation of snow and rain during winter. The faster melting of snow during the spring will result in flooding. All these climate changes are predicted based on the assumption that changes will be relatively gradual.
