Feeling the Heat

FEELING THE HEAT OUR ADDICTION TO FOSSIL FUELS IS CAUSING DRAMATIC CHANGES TO OUR PLANET. BY BURNING FOSSIL FUELS, WE ARE EMITTING CARBON DIOXIDE INTO EARTH'S ATMOSPHERE-TRAPPING HEAT THAT WOULD NORMALLY BE REDISTRIBUTED INTO SPACE. TO AVOID REACHING CRITICAL TIPPING POINTS, SUCH AS THE MELTING OF THE ICE SHEETS IN GREENLAND OR WEST ANTARCTICA, WE NEED TO REDUCE CO2 EMISSIONS 80% BY 2050.
