Mean global temperature is at 14.5 degrees Celsius (warmest ever).

Global warming kills animals.  Species disappear (polar bear, whales, penguins, frogs, cod, jellyfish and snail among others).

Global warming will wreck all the fun (baseball trees will disappear as well as Christmas trees, ski competition, cool cultural landmarks like ice tops will disappear, French fries, more mosquitoes and more poison ivy).

Global warming will kill the planet (literally). Greenland will melt, less ice at arctic, more sand seas in Africa, oceans will be more acidic, rivers will dry up, African rivers & lakes will disappear, more wild fires, higher sea levels.

Endanger of U.S. assets worth billions of dollars

Global warming will make people sicker. More people will die, warm temperatures will result in increased heat waves, smog will kill people, increased heart diseases, resurgence of deadly diseases, increased malaria incidences in Africa and Russia, starvation, and incidences of more refugees.

Will result to more African deaths

Climate by 2050

If nothing is done and the current trends continue then:

Extreme heat resulting in summer deaths will triple

Rise of sea level waters by 4ft, Ozone layer will be depleted

Higher skin cancer cases

Homes of about 25-40million people will be threatened

It is projected that by 2090; heat waves will have increased by 25% resulting to 5 times deaths in the 1990s, 20% of water scarcity, CO2 will exceed 600ppm and food to be greatly disrupted.
