The heat is on … and temperatures are rising to unprecedented levels all across the planet. In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby explain how naturally occurring greenhouse gases in our atmosphere once helped transform Earth into a temperate and pleasant place. But as human civilization evolved our reliance on industry, manufacturing and large-scale agriculture has thrown this greenhouse effect out of whack. We’re burning more fossil fuels and generating more heat-trapping gasses, like carbon dioxide and methane, than our planet can process. That’s causing global warming on a scale we’ve never seen before. But the trouble isn’t just about temperatures. Climate change is leading to rising sea levels, water shortages, and more erratic, extreme weather conditions. We’ve already felt the effects of these shifts, but if we’re not careful things will only get worse and more people will fall victim to the ripple effects of a hotter Earth. So watch this movie to learn more about what you can do to help … before things get too hot to handle.
