The average surface temperature of earth has increased more than 1 degree Fahrenheit since 1900 and the rate of warming has been nearly three times the century-long average since 1970. Almost all experts studying the recent climate history of the earth agree now that human activities, mainly the release of heat-trapping gases from smokestacks, tailpipes, and burning forests, are probably the dominant force driving the trend. The gases add to the planet's natural greenhouse effect, allowing sunlight in, but preventing some of the resulting heat from radiating back to space. Drawing on research on past climate shifts, observations of current conditions, and computer simulations, many climate experts say that without big curbs in greenhouse gas emissions, the 21st century could see temperatures rise 3 to 8 degrees, weather patterns sharply shift, ice sheets shrink and seas rise several feet.
What we do: Work to promote solutions to global warming using current and cutting-edge technology that will reduce our use of fossil fuels. By switching to energy efficient cars and trucks, and clean, renewable energy, we can curb global warming pollution, save consumers money and curtail our reliance on oil.
Global Warming Explained After years of debate, a near consensus among the world's scientists has concluded that we are warming the planet, and unless we take steps now to curb global warming, our way of life, our planet, and our children are all in grave danger. But there is hope. Each us can make simple decisions that will reduce global warming pollution. The Sierra Club's network of activists and volunteers are dedicated to curbing global warming.

The GlobalWarming Awareness2007 project is aware that there are many things we can do to promote a healthier and environmentally friendly environment. Over the last decades, scientists have observed the increase of temperature of our Planet Earth's atmosphere and sea; they've also reached the conclusion that we are the cause of Global Warming. With that said, we know it is everyone's responsibility to help reduce this threat.
Some of the consequences of not doing anything about Global Warming will lead to further increase in global temperatures, produce more extreme weather events like droughts, floods heat waves, hurricanes, tornados and rise of precipitation. Other catastrophically related events are higher or lower agricultural production, glacier alterations, less summer streamflows, increase of diseases and extinctions of species.
