1. What causes global warming?

1.1. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. That means it traps heat from Earth's surface and holds the heat in the atmosphere. Scientists have learned that, throughout Earth's history, temperature and CO2 levels in the air are closely tied. source: NASA Climate Kids :: How do we know the climate is changing?

2. What is being affected by global warming?

2.1. I found this website to be helpful: https://www.ucsusa.org/our-work/global-warming/...impacts/global-warming-impacts

2.2. Everything from animals, the oceans, to people are being affected by climate change. Polar bears and arctic creatures loose a little bit of their home each day. Coral Reefs are dying because of the rapid change of temperature. Where humans houses used to be, there is now water. Every single ecosystem is changing because of human fault.

3. What do some people think about climate change?

3.1. With any big issue, especially involving our planet, different people are going to have different ways as to what will solve our problem. Let's take a look at some solutions...

3.1.1. Psychologist and ecologist Per Espen Stokes thinks that the way to stop global warming is by transforming apocalypse fatigue into action. https://www.ted.com/talks/per_espen_stoknes_how_to_transform_apocalypse_fatigue_into_action

4.1. Global warming, or climate change is a very real, very scary thing to rap your head around. It is important to stay positive and try to fix our earth rather than dwelling on what has happened so far.
