Climate change is a phenomenon that affects all of us. Its effects are our reality: temperatures are increasing, precipitation patterns are changing, glaciers are melting, and average water levels (seas and oceans) are rising around the world.
Mitigating climate change is one of the global challenges we face today. One contributor to the warming is the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere, which is caused by human emissions. To minimize climate change, we must reduce or prevent these emissions.
