Temperatures continue to rise around our planet. March 2020 was 1.2 degrees Fahrenheit warmer than March 1991. And overall, Earth is about 2 degrees F warmer now than the 20th century average temperature.

It may not sound like much, but the repercussions of Earth warming a few degrees are huge. Arctic ice melt, rising sea levels, floods, droughts, wildfires, species extinction, and famine are just a few. We can’t turn back the clock, but we can work to reduce future consequences.
