Scientific claim

As more carbon is trapped within our atmosphere (the greenhouse effect), overall temperature substantially rises.

United States Space Administration, climate studies (https://climate.nasa.gov/effects/)

Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner.

According to the IPCC, the extent of climate change effects on individual regions will vary over time and with the ability of different societal and environmental systems to mitigate or adapt to change.

Lu-Ann Dahlman, of the Nat. Oceanic and Atmospheric administration (https://www.climate.gov/news-features/understanding-climate/climate-change-global-temperature)

Temperatures measured on land and at sea for more than a century show that Earth's globally averaged surface temperature is rising. Since 1970, global surface temperature rose at an average rate of about 0.17°C (around 0.3° Fahrenheit) per decade—more than twice as fast as the 0.07°C per decade increase observed for the entire period of recorded observations (1880-2015).

Though warming has not been uniform across the planet, the upward trend in the globally averaged temperature shows that more areas are warming than cooling.

Importance

Due to this overall variance in climate (for the worse): coastal flooding has become more frequent, avg. sea level has increased, and man-made institution has become significantly more prone to natural disasters.

Furthermore, increased heat is damaging to human health; government property (military surfaces, local [regional] areas – monuments) is degrading. The increased heat, and a disruption to our consistent crop supply, can/will be deadly.

Conduction(s) of the above studies

The following was taken from the NASA (federal government) web centre, and planetary observatory:

This result is correlative with atmospheric (collective) CO^2 levels:

This conversation has been publicised, and I hope others can enjoy it.

The pictures, unfortunately, have gone down (link rot) since I made said post eight months ago.

This looks like it would be a great science project.

Latemarx - go to this post

This looks like it would be a great science project.

Someone should print this onto a poster, even.
