In the last few decades, there has been a 134 percent increase in global temperature.

This has led to melting of the ice sheets, rising sea levels, super floods, and drought all around the world. Glacier growth has also accelerated. While global warming may not be considered the root cause of these weather disasters, it does play a major role in accelerating them. Glacier retreats, mass glacier melt, icebergs, thawing of the cryosphere, and the rapid spreading of potential ancient mysteries thawed from those regions. With threats that could have serious consequences for food supplies, water security, and the stability of our environment.

A study conducted by scientists involved with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change found that in the decade up to 2021, climate change was the most significant global environmental change that had occurred in the past century. Although the planet has been subjected to natural climate variation over the last million years, during the period of recent climate change, the climate has been much more extreme. Rapid climate change is thought to be the result of greenhouse gas emissions, which are the result of the combustion of fossil fuels for energy production, and industrial processes, which release large amounts of carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.
