Breaking: Humans (yes, you and me) are the main cause for global warming.
So maybe you already knew this or at least suspected. But now, thanks to research from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) scientists, we have confirmation.
“The bottom line is that this study substantially strengthens the conclusion that most of the observed global ocean warming over the past 50 years is attributable to human activities,” said LLNL scientist Peter Gleckler.
Not sure what global warming is? Well, the earth is heating up (a result of greenhouse gases trapping heat/light in the atmosphere) and harming a lot of plants, animals, and humans. This leads to climate change (exactly what it sounds like). This change in global climate is a result of the increasing global temperature. Those that can't adapt could die.
Yikes. Want to help stop this? We’ve got a list of things you can do.
- Turn on a fan. (Not the air conditioner.)
- Use less hot water. A lot of energy is required to heat it.
- Turn off lights and electronics when not using them.
- Plant a tree. (They absorb CO2 and release sweet-smelling oxygen.)
